From an interview for Something Else!, February 2014:
NICK DERISO: Your penchant for great pop led you to appear on Paul McCartney and Wings’ “Listen to What the Man Said,” one of their biggest hits in the 1970s. How did that happen?
DAVE MASON: Actually, they were recording in New Orleans, and I was doing a show there. A couple of the guys from Wings came by to the see the show, and we had a day off the next day. They said: “Why don’t you come down to the studio?” I’m sure Paul would love to see you. So, I just stopped by, and they happened to be cutting “Listen to What the Man Said.” Paul was, like: “Hey, c’mon, you should sit in with us.” (Laughs.)
The first time I met the great Paul McCartney was when he came to see my girlfriend, who was designing a special “Sgt. Pepper” theme couch for him. He told me that night he was excited about the new Traffic project I had just started with. He was at our first Traffic gig, was always a strong voice of support for us, and later in life, I even got to record “Listen to What the Man Said” with him.
For me, there is no more important musical artist from my generation. Happy birthday, Sir Paul; all the best to the very best!Dave Mason – From Facebook, June 18, 2021
