May 17 1980 – Paul and Linda McCartney were interviewed by “Father Guido Sarducci” (Don Novello) on Saturday Night Live. They were interviewed live in Soho Square, outside MPL.
The interview was arranged at 11:30pm (US time) but Father Guido forgot about the time difference, and it was 4:30 in the morning that he turned up at MPL to interview Paul and Linda. After throwing stones at the windows of MPL Paul finally comes out in his night clothes, followed by Linda. It was only a few months after Paul’s drug bust in Japan, the the Father wanted to talk about that, rather than Paul’s new single ‘Coming Up’.
