What dubious honour does Sir Paul’s title allow him? This and many other subjects were covered in his podcast conversation with Marc Maron.
Paul McCartney was the guest of honour at yesterday’s (8 August) fifth annual Capitol Congress, hosted by Capitol Music Group chief Steve Barnett at the Arclight Theatre in Hollywood. McCartney took part in a conversation of more than 70 minutes for a live podcast with Marc Maron, ahead of the 7 September release by Capitol of his new album Egypt Station.
During a frank and amusing discussion, the former Beatle spoke about the supposed advantages of being a knight of the realm; the only privilege, he said, is “being able to drive a flock of sheep through London.” He also talked about such recording adventures as his time with Linda McCartney and Denny Laine in Lagos, Nigeria making the classic Wings album Band On The Run.
