Paul McCartney now not needs to signal fan autographs: It’s ‘strange’

According to Paul McCartney all we’d like is love, not autographs.

The 79-year-old former Beatle revealed in a brand new interview with “Reader’s Digest” that he doesn’t prefer to take selfies or signal autographs for followers anymore as a result of he finds it fairly “strange.”

“‘Here,” he stated. “Can I write your name down on the back of this till receipt please? We both know who I am.”

While the British rocker is joyful to speak to followers, he doesn’t perceive why individuals want his signature.

“What you’ve usually got is a ropey photo with a poor backdrop and me looking a bit miserable,” he continued. “Let’s chat, let’s exchange stories.”

McCartney’s sentiments echoed his bandmate Ringo Starr, who stated in 2008 he would stop signing autographs due to his busy schedule.

“I’m warning you with peace and love. I have too much to do, so no more fan mail,” Starr, 81, stated on the time. “And no objects to be signed. Nothing! Anyway, peace and love, peace and love.”

When Starr was asked by Howard Stern in 2018 about his resolution, the drummer defined, “That was one angry moment. In New York, actually, I was signing scratch plates that they have on guitars, and someone said, ‘Have you seen on the internet?’ There’s a guitar with my signature on a scratch plate.”

“Someone had screwed one onto a s – – – y guitar and was selling it for three grand,” he continued. “And I said, ‘No.’ I only sign for charity now.”

Starr and McCartney’s days as part of The Beatles shall be immortalized within the upcoming Disney+ documentary “The Beatles: Get Back.”

The three-night miniseries will doc how the group — comprised of Starr, McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison — rose to fame within the British music scene within the Nineteen Sixties and their breakup a decade later.

Filled with long-lost, restored archival footage from the Beatles’ previous days and classic band interviews, the primary episode of the Peter Jackson-directed collection drops Nov. 25. 

The “The Lord of the Rings” director trudged by way of greater than 60 hours of beforehand unseen footage and 150 hours of unheard audio for the docuseries. The unearthed movies have been present in Michael Lindsay-Hogg’s long-lost “Let It Be,” a 1970 tv documentary chronicling the strain of the Fab Foursome as they wrote and rehearsed new songs for his or her last album and live performance.
