About

Paul McCartney in "Conversations With McCartney", by Paul Du Noyer:

It’s loosely based on my upbringing in Liverpool. So it starts in the wartime with two parents in an air-raid shelter, and they’re gonna have a baby — quite dramatic, having a baby in war. It’s dramatic anyway, having a baby. But in wartime in Liverpool, that was definitely one of the places that got done in. My dad was like a fireman, trying to put out all these incendiary bombs.

So the first movement is very chaotic, it’s weird, almost avant-garde. Then in the middle there’s a little ray of hope, a sort of a burst, this hope for the future. It’s a moving idea that with all this shit gong on they still dare to hope for the future.

The next movement is school days, and after that it gets to teenage years. We’re not going to do heavily the Beatles thing; it’s overdone, that segment of my life. The other segments are just as interesting, particularly to me. Particularly Liverpool, it’s so rich.

School was some nuthouse, that was. Really. Throwing piss bombs. You get kids, “Yeah! We throw water bombs, fill a balloon with water”. I hate to tell you what we filled it with, lads. I told Carl a few of these experiences. We used to ‘sag off’. He said “What do you mean?” He’s American. It’s playing hooky, playing truant. We used to go in the cathedral graveyard, cos our school was there. Very irreligious, we’d take our shirts off and sunbathe on the gravestones. Not much respect for the dead, I must say, but it didn’t occur to us. But Carl likes that, particularly as it’s going to be performed in the cathedral.
