“I used to be terrified, as are most entertainers, of making a mistake. Now I realise the audiences don’t mind. In fact - they quite like it. You get these little ‘eureka’ moments - you make a mistake and go ‘Christ’. I did one a few years ago in Paris. I started 'Penny Lane' with the wrong verse and I had to stop the song and start again. We ground to a halt and the audience went mad. They enjoyed it and I said, 'At least it proves we’re live’. The review said it was the most marvellous bit." (Paul-June 2015).
it was that night...
