Paul McCartney: John’s now trying acting again, and George has got his passion for the sitar and all the Indian stuff. He’s lucky. Like somebody’s luck who’s got into religion. I’m just looking for something I enjoy doing. There’s no hurry. I have the time and the money. People think we’re not conceited, but we are. If you ask me if I wrote good or bad songs, I’d be thick to say bad, wouldn’t I? It’s true we’re lucky, but we got where we are because of what we did.
About fans: […] I don’t despise them. I don’t think fans are humiliating themselves. I queued up once at the Liverpool Empire for Wee Willie Harris’s autograph. I wanted to do it. I don’t think I was being stupid.
[…] I can go out and around more than people think, without being recognised. People never really believe it’s you. They don’t really expect to see you in the street, so you can get away with it.
[…] “One of us might think of a song completely, and the other might just add a bit. Or we might write alternate lines. We never argue. If one of us says he doesn’t like a bit, the other agrees. It just doesn’t matter that much. I care about being a song writer, but I don’t care passionately about each song.”
[…] “I think we can go on as The Beatles for as long as we want to, writing songs, making records. We’re still developing. I’ve no ambitions, just to enjoy myself. We’ve had all the ego bit, all about wanting to be remembered. We couldn’t do any better than we’ve done already, could we?”
