60 Minutes Exclusive: A day in the life of Paul McCartney

60 Minutes Exclusive: A day in the life of Paul McCartney
By Liz Little
June 23 2017


Following this week’s announcement of an Australian tour – his first in almost 25 years – rock and roll legend Sir Paul McCartney sits down for an exclusive 60 Minutes interview with reporter Liz Hayes.

And what a story he has to tell. McCartney has sold 700-million albums in his lifetime, and won endless awards – including 21 Grammys. In doing so he’s also proven to be an astute businessman – his worth is estimated to exceed a billion dollars.

And of course, as he tells 60 Minutes, it all started with The Beatles.




“The sum of the four of us made something special. We were elevated beyond ourselves. And so it made for some very special times.”

Not only is McCartney celebrating his 75th birthday this year, but also the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band — a musical masterpiece many consider the greatest rock and roll album ever made.


“It’s stood the test of time,” he tells Hayes. “When you listen to it now, I’m blown away. And I shouldn’t be.”

In his candid one-on-one, McCartney also looks back on his fondest memories with The Beatles, and the pain that saw him refuse to play their songs for years.

He opens up on the incredibly invasive media attention he has received during his career – and in particular the focus on his private life.


McCartney has been married three times and has five children. For nearly 30 years the love of his life was Linda, who died from breast cancer in 1998. Several years later he married model Heather Mills but that relationship ended acrimoniously.

Six years ago he married American businesswoman Nancy Shevell.

McCartney’s is an incredible career, a lifetime of musical contribution that has been recognised not only by his legions of fans, but with a knighthood. He opens up on all the highs and lows this Sunday.

“I do pinch myself. Regularly. And I kind of like the fact that I pinch myself, ‘cause I don’t want to accept it.”


A Day in the Life’ airs this Sunday on 60 Minutes, 9.30pm on Channel 9.

Paul McCartney Says Working With Kanye West Was ‘Intriguing Process’

Paul McCartney Says Working With Kanye West Was ‘Intriguing Process’
By Michael Gallucci
June 22, 2017

Paul McCartney called his 2015 collaboration with Kanye West an “intriguing process” during a recent Facebook live chat.

The pair worked together in sessions that yielded three songs which were eventually released by West: “Only One,” “All Day” and “FourFiveSeconds,” a hit single that featured Rihanna.

“I got a phone call and my manager said, ‘Kanye West would like to work with you,’” McCartney explained to Australian comedian and musician Tim Minchin, who hosted the Facebook live chat (via NME). “And I go, ‘Yeah, we’ll do it.’ I was a little bit nervous at first, because I thought it could go horribly wrong. But I was intrigued to see what he was up to and how he did it.”

McCartney said “it was a very intriguing process. You basically don’t write songs. You basically just talk and noodle a bit and you record it all on your phone. And then he goes away. And that’s basically his record. But it was great doing it because I don’t work like that.”

Still, the former Beatles star compared working with the hip-hop artist to his old band — particularly some of the complicated recording structures and techniques used on Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.

“So I was waiting three months after we’d finished [recording],” McCartney said. “I didn’t really hear anything but ‘Hey, bro, what’s going on?’ But I’m thinking, should I say, ‘Did we write a song? Will a record come out of this?’ Anyway, this arrives and it’s a Rihanna song. … I said, ‘This is great! I have to ring up and say, ‘Am I on this?’ And he goes, ‘Oh, yeah. You’re the guitar player.’ I go, ‘I don’t remember.’ And he said, ‘We sped it up.’ So they manipulated this, kind of – although, we’re talking about Sgt. Pepper, we loved manipulating. So I think we would have been into a lot of these tricks nowadays, because we did speed things up a little bit.”

In other McCartney news, a 2009 performance he and former bandmate Ringo Starr gave at the “Change Begins Within” charity concert — a benefit for the David Lynch Foundation held at Radio City Music Hall — will be released on DVD for the first time on Sept. 1. Both artists perform several songs on their own, but they joined up onstage for “With a Little Help From My Friends” near the end of the show.

A concert DVD documenting the 2009 "Change Begins Within" charity concert benefiting the David Lynch Foundation will be released September 1st. The concert notably featured a Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunion, as well as performances from Eddie Vedder, Sheryl Crow, Donovan and more.

The Change Begins Within show took place April 4th, 2009 at New York's Radio City Music Hall. The lineup also featured My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Moby, Ben Harper, Paul Horn, Angelo Badalamenti and Betty LaVette, as well a special appearance from Jerry Seinfeld.

The setlist for the concert DVD boasts an array of collaborations, including Vedder and Harper performing David Bowie and Queen's "Under Pressure," Donovan and James performing "Hurdy Gurdy Man" and the entire lineup closing the show with McCartney's "Cosmically Conscious" and the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There." McCartney and Starr also performed several tracks on their own, though fittingly came together for a rendition of "With A Little Help From My Friends."
Snippets of the gig can be seen in a promotional video compiled by the David Lynch Foundation and released in 2010.





The David Lynch Foundation has continued to organize Change Begins Within concerts and events since the 2009 show. Past participants include Katy Perry, Sting, Hugh Jackman, Herbie Hancock, Esperanza Spalding, Ellen DeGeneres and more. Filmmaker David Lynch launched his foundation in 2005 with the aim of promoting efforts to eradicate trauma and stress among at-risk populations through Transcendental Meditation.

Along with various charity events, Lynch has organized the Festival of Disruption to raise money for the David Lynch Foundation. This year's event will take place October 14th and 15th in Los Angeles and feature Bon Iver, TV on the Radio, the Kills and more.

'That was very sad. We were looking forward to it,' Paul told the publication in regards to the cancellation of his proposed Melbourne shows back in 2002.

Paul McCartney is coming to Australia for his first tour in 24 years and you can ask a question
Cameron Adams
News Corp Australia Network
JUNE 20, 2017

Image result for paul mccartney australia flag
Paul McCartney last toured Australia in 1993.

PAUL McCartney’s first Australian tour in 24 years has been confirmed.
His Australian promoter Frontier are currently sourcing questions from local Macca fans on its Facebook page.
The musical legend will select from those questions when he officially announces the tour tomorrow night at 7.30pm.
In a modern twist McCartney will announce all the tour dates and ticketing details during a Facebook live Q and A session — again on Frontier’s Facebook page.
The interview will be hosted live from London by longtime McCartney fan, Aussie comedian Tim Minchin, who is flying in especially for the event.
McCartney’s Australian tour dates will take place in December and will include a stop across the Tasman Sea to New Zealand.
No venues have been confirmed although a leak from Melbourne’s AAMI Park suggest McCartney will join the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Taylor Swift and the Foo Fighters to play the outdoor venue which can hold around 35,000 fans.
McCartney’s tour is expected to stretch further than the West Coast, and Adelaide fans are already hoping the rock icon doesn’t join the list of acts bypassing South Australia.

McCartney has been courted by local promoters for the last decade, with Michael Gudinski winning the bidding war.
Sir Paul has only toured Australia three times before — once with The Beatles in 1964, then with Wings in 1975 and his only solo trip in 1993.
Fans have flooded social media with excitement after teasers for the tour surfaced on Sunday, although The Herald Sun first revealed the likelihood on June 12.
McCartney famously cancelled a tour in 2002, saying the tour was too close to grieving for the Bali bombing victims and he planned to reschedule.
Patient McCartney fans will be rewarded with a near three-hour show, nearly half of which is Beatles songs.
McCartney’s One on One tour has already played shows in Japan this year and will tour North and South America between July and October before heading down under.

Preview: Musicians Pick Their Favorite Beatles Songs

Sneak Peek: Can You Guess These Musicians’ Favorite Beatles Songs?
Written by: Frank Mastropolo
June 2017




It took the Beatles less than 10 years to record their iconic catalog of more than 200 songs. The music of John LennonPaul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr has been recorded by hundreds of artists and enjoyed by millions of fans.
Rock Cellar recently asked artists of different eras and musical genres, “What is your favorite Beatles song – and why?” We won’t reveal their answers here but will give you a sneak peek at what they told us. See if you can guess their choices – and check back soon for the complete story.
Rick Wakeman of Yes featuring Jon Anderson, Trevor Rabin and Rick Wakeman selected from Magical Mystery Tour “a brilliantly constructed piece of music, wacky lyrics, a spaced-out tune.”
Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad chose a song from Revolver because “it’s good, it’s what rock and roll is supposed to be doing. And it’s in the face of the Man, it really is.”
Revolver was also an early source of inspiration for Vanilla Fudge and includes Carmine Appice‘s favorite Beatles track. “I just love the fact that they took that Middle Eastern stuff, they took all that backwards stuff and associated it with rock music – it was awesome, it was really awesome stuff.”
Martin Barre of Jethro Tull chose an entire album as a favorite. The guitarist, who also discusses recording with McCartney, said, “To me the album in its entirety is a piece of music and it all fits together and flows from one song to the other. When you play that album and the song finishes, you know the next one to come up even before it started.  The sequence is just so perfect.”
“The melody’s great, it’s just a cool song,” said “Dream Weaver” Gary Wright of a classic Beatles hit. Producer George Martin’s arrangement helped persuade Wright that this tune was his favorite: “The combination of the cello tracks and the idea for the lyrics of the song was great.”
More than a dozen musicians reveal and explain their choices in our upcoming story. Please share your guesses and your own favorite Beatles songs in the Comments section below.
