From ABC News Radio, August 25th 2015:
[…] “We were really grateful to have him come in and cut the track,” he maintains. “I mean, for all of us, it was like, ‘Holy s***, we’re actually doing a session with Paul McCartney….I mean, talk about an ego leveler.”
Perry adds that during the session, which was done live in the studio, he, Depp and Cooper “were looking at each other like, ‘I can’t believe this is happening.’”
Joe tells ABC Radio that, like many other musicians who grew up during the 1960s, he credits The Beatles with inspiring his career path.
“I remember watching them on [The] Ed Sullivan [Show] when I was 14…I mean, that why I’m doing what I’m doing today,” he points out. “And to have [McCartney] just strolling in like any [of the] other cats that played on [the album] was really amazing. I still can’t believe it.”
Perry also says he always thought “Come and Get It” was “a really good tune,” but getting to “play it live with the guy who wrote it, and a Beatle was, like, stunning.” […]
From Blabbermouth.net, Joe Perry about recording with Paul McCartney:
It was fascinating to watch how he worked, that it was taken for granted that we would just play live in the studio, all of us as a group, as opposed to one guy playing and then another guy playing. The way he went about it , he was very friendly about the whole thing, very focused and very… I hate to say ‘old school,’ but the kind of recording I believe is the best recording, which is get it live in the studio. And I asked him about the left-handed/right-handed guitar-playing thing. And he said, ‘You know, that’s a good question.’ Because he plays left-handed. And I’m left-handed and I play right-handed. And I didn’t have any examples to go, ‘That guy plays left-handed, so that’s how you can do it.’ I just took the instruction from the little 45 that came with the student guitar, and it said, ‘Put the neck here, and put the pick here, the plectrum here, and go from there.’ And I didn’t know any guitar players, period, back then as an example. And he said that there are a number of pop stars that he was aware of that played left-handed, so he knew that that was an option.
