1 Ric12string 1 year ago David Frost recently conducted an extended interview with Paul McCartney that was published to YouTube about six weeks ago. I watched it this morning and found it to be pretty interesting. While I have generally always enjoyed McCartney, and have been a fan of his talents, many of his interviews I have found to be cloying, and too sugary with his frequent and seemingly lifelong desire to be "cute." This interview, perhaps because it was conducted by David Frost, is a bit more reflective, insightful, and self-analytical. Among other things, McCartney talks about his early beginnings, his songwriting with John Lennon, the Beatles' rise to fame, his thoughts on Yoko and the tensions that existed during recording sessions (and generally within the band) due to her presence, Alan Klein's desire to manage the band and McCartney's role in causing the Beatles' breakup, his marriage to Linda Eastman and her subsequent battle with cancer, fatherhood, and his visit to the White House to spend a musical evening with President Obama. "It'd be pretty sad to be prancing around on a stage at forty." He's still prancing. David Frost Interview with Paul McCartney By the way, two things to watch for: Try to avoid looking at David Frost's socks during the interview. Watch for the photograph of Elvis Presley and check out the guitar that he is playing/holding.
