Sir Paul McCartney has exclusively told Absolute Radio that he was 'stereotyped' as being 'the cute one' back in the Sixties when he was part of The Beatles and admits he's being quite defensive about his song writing collaboration with John Lennon in track 'Early Days,' from his latest album 'New,' saying: '
".it's just this idea of people robbing your history from you, that it's not just me but in my case it started off with the case of 'they can't take it away from me because I lived through those early days. I was there.' And then it went into describing some early days, some memories of me and John walking along or listening to the records in the record shop and all of that. But then the last verse is wildly defensive, which is like you know nowadays people sort of say who did this and who did that, well that is very definitely about people telling me, you know, what I did and what John did. And as I think you know it was much more equal you know. We had a lot in common but I'd become stereotyped, I mean you know it started way back in the Sixties and they'd sort of say, 'Paul's the cute one.' I am cute. No, that is true, but I've got more to me than cute.'
Macca also revealed it was 'very difficult' to tell his wife Nancy that he loved her for the first time and that his song 'Scared' is about just that, saying: 'I just found it very difficult to you know, how are you going to say it? You know, 'By the way, I love you' or 'I love you' or whatever you know, and it's like the minute you say it for a guy it's like you feel like you're in a film and you've just said something very embarrassing. I just thought it was a good idea for a song to sort of own up that you know I find it difficult to actually tell someone.'
And Sir Paul also revealed he 'loved' US hit TV show 'Breaking Bad,' but said Nancy couldn't watch it, saying: 'No, she won't watch Breaking Bad because it's a little bit heavy for her. I loved it. Only thing was, the last episode when Walt goes into where all the baddies are, they frisk him, they look in his car but they don't look in the boot. Why? If they had looked in the boot they would have seen this bloody great machine gun. Now why didn't they look in there? I thought that was odd. I would think, 'Check it, check his boot.'
Speaking to Geoff Lloyd's Hometime Show on Absolute Radio, weekdays from 5pm.
