Tour promoter Paul McCartney is on a new tour, and his latest album, The Beatles: Rock & Roll Experience, is not your average rock album.
It’s a tour of rock and roll legend George Harrison’s 1968 masterpiece.
McCartney is touring with his wife, Bono, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Beach Boys and, yes, himself.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, McCartney said he didn’t think Harrison was a rock star when he recorded his album.
He said he’d seen some of his videos and he saw how Harrison looked and felt.
But, he added, “I think he was a real good singer.
He wasn’t just a singer.
I saw his videos of him on stage.
But he wasn’t rock star.”
Harrison’s legacy is a matter of debate, but McCartney was in the audience for the first time when he heard Harrison’s version of “The White Album” in 1969.
McCartney said that the singer and songwriter “could have just done what he did, and not even had to do anything.
It was so easy.
The only thing he had to say was, ‘Yes, I want to make this happen.'”
McCartney said Harrison’s lyrics, as well as his performance of the song, were a revelation to him.
“It was something that he had done so many times before, but this was the first one that he did it in front of a full house,” McCartney said.
“I just think that the songs were the first ones that I was able to sing to.
“The Beatles’ live album came out in 1971, and it was a little bit of a breakthrough for me. “
“When I saw that album, I was just like, ‘Oh, man. “
I really don’t know what to do. “
When I saw that album, I was just like, ‘Oh, man.
I really don’t know what to do.
And that’s how it started.” “
Then I was like, Well, I’m going to write a song for him, and then I’m like, I’ll be the star of this record, because that’s where he wants to be.
And that’s how it started.”
The Beatles had already been touring together for several years, but Harrison had never been on tour with McCartney before.
But this time, they were traveling together as a band and touring together as Harrison’s own band, The White Album.
He was performing the song “I Wanna Be Your Man,” the first of three songs written for the album.
“He just kind of took the whole concept of the album, and he went for a kind of a more emotional and more romantic feel, and just said, ‘Yeah, I wanna be your man,'” McCartney said of Harrison.
“You know, ‘I wanna be you.
You’re a good man, and a good woman, and you’re kind of my man.’
And I just wanted to give him a big thumbs up.”
The album went on to sell over 5 million copies worldwide.
McCartney called it a “perfect storm” and said that when the Beatles released the album in 1972, he “was a little shocked, because I knew that I had put my money where my mouth was, and that was going to be my album, my signature album.”
I didn, and George just made it happen. “
But it just made me very happy because I didn’t want to be the guy.
I didn, and George just made it happen.
I knew what I was doing, and the rest, they’re history.”
McCartney has had a long career in music, from backing the likes of David Bowie and Stevie Wonder to writing music for bands like Aerosmith and Kiss.
He’s been in the spotlight for many years, including during the 2016 Presidential campaign, and recently joined the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
He says he thinks the “Rock & Roll Hall” award should be given to Harrison, and, he said, that he’s “very proud of George.”
He told Rolling Stone: “I don’t think the Hall of Famer deserves the Hall.
I don’t believe he deserves it.
He loved to dance, he loved to do things like that. “
His life is a lot of fun.
He loved to dance, he loved to do things like that.
But I think George is a really special man, because it’s just hard to say it, because he was the guy that I wanted to be.”
