By Posted on 0 18

Paul was not put off his annual festive break on the island, after jetting in with wife Nancy and his grandchildren on Boxing Day.


Having gathered his family in the idyllic destination to ring in 2017, Paul,was unlike fellow celebrities who have chosen to decamp to other islands for their fix of winter sun this Christmas.


Paul spent Christmas with his smitten partner Nancy after wrapping his exciting tour in Australia and New Zealand earlier this year. Paul flashed a cheery thumbs up as he stepped onto the idyllic Caribbean island alongside Nancy.


Paul appeared to be in great spirits as he chatted and laughed away with Nancy while climbing down from the jet.
The couple’s outing comes after they spent Christmas together. The married couple are more loved-up than ever before and recently celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary in October.

‘YOU GAVE ME THE ANSWER’ – CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR SPECIAL…

By Posted on 0 15

Paul tells us about his all-time best Christmas and shares his plans for 2018 in a special edition of ‘You Gave Me The Answer’..

It’s beginning to look like Christmas in London. Oxford Street, Regents Street and Carnaby Street have somehow managed to out-Christmas themselves again, the trains and buses are getting emptier by the day and there is a feeling of joy and excitement in the air, which can only be felt at this time of year.

We know how curious Paul’s fans are about his holiday celebrations, so we caught up with him just before he headed over to Australia to make sure we got your Christmas and New Year questions answered in plenty of time!

Diane in the US asks Paul: “What was your all-time best Christmas?” 

Paul sat down on the comfy sofa in his office to reflect:

“I think probably when my kids were growing up. With the anticipation of Father Christmas coming and with the opening of the presents on Christmas morning. Even though the kids always got you up a little bit too early!”

PM.com: “Did you creep around with the presents and the stockings?”

Paul: “No, Father Christmas did. What are you suggesting?!”

PM.com: “We would never suggest anything!”

Paul: “How could you suggest that?! Withdraw that remark! [Paul winks] Yeah, you know, those were always great. When the kids were little was especially good because you see it through their eyes, so it’s great excitement.”

No sooner have we recycled our wrapping paper (does anyone else re-use the same paper the following year?), slept and walked off our Christmas lunches… it’s then time to prepare for New Year’s Eve! Whether you go out to watch the fireworks, or stay inside and enjoy the warmth of your home, it does have a tendency to make one reflect back on the year’s happenings, and look forwards to what the next year may have in store! We asked Paul, “What would you like to achieve in 2018?”

Paul: “I’ll probably be putting out a new album. So, I’d like that to be something I really love and then hopefully the fans will love it too! We’re putting the finishing touches to it now and at the beginning of next year. So, I would like to achieve making that a really great album. Fingers crossed! That’s not what it’s called, but fingers crossed! [Pauses] It could be… it COULD be the new album title!”

And on that cliffhanger…. we’ll leave it there until 2018!


PAUL JOINS END THE SILENCE CAMPAIGN

By Posted on 0 32

Paul McCartney joins charity campaign End The Silence by Hope and Homes for Children, as it is revealed The Beatles’ music is the UK’s most popular childhood musical memory. With thousands of memories shared since the charity initiative was launched on 1st November on endthesilence.com and social media using #EndTheSilence – The Beatles, Michael Jackson and Queen complete the top three acts most remembered.

In the exclusive video for End The Silence, Sir Paul has revealed Gene Vincent’s Be-Bop-A-Lula is the song choice of his childhood. He has joined some of the biggest names in popular culture – Ozzy Osbourne, Noel Gallagher, Sir Elton John, Ed Sheeran, Paul Weller, Kasabian and many more – in sharing their most cherished childhood songs and memories for the End the Silence campaign supported by YouTube.

Music icon, Sir Paul McCartney remembered: “Be-Bop-A-Lula’ was the very first record I bought and I saved up all my pocket money and I went down to the city centre in Liverpool…I took it home and played it to death.

I can’t imagine growing up without listening to music. I just can’t because I was so lucky…to imagine not having music is terrifying, really I don’t know what I would have done. I certainly wouldn’t be who I am today, you know, because of the influences and the joy of listening to music is what made me.”

From the thousands of memories shared, the UK’s top ten most remembered musical memories include:

1. The Beatles (most chosen song: Hey Jude)
2. Michael Jackson (most chosen song: Thriller)
3. Queen (most chosen song: Bohemian Rhapsody)
4. Abba (most chosen song: Dancing Queen)
5. Sir Elton John (most chosen song: Your Song)
6. David Bowie (most chosen song: Starman)
7. Duran Duran (most chosen song: Save A Prayer)
8. Ed Sheeran (most chosen song: Photograph)
9. Paul Simon/Simon and Garfunkel (most chosen song: Graceland)
10. Prince (most chosen song: Kiss)

To date, the charity has raised nearly £2 million with less than a week to go. The vital funds will help Hope and Homes for Children find families for 120,000 children suffering silence and neglect in Ugandan and Rwandan orphanages. Every pound donated before 27th December will be doubled by the UK Government.
Mark Waddington, CEO of Hope and Homes for Children, says: “As we approach raising £2 million through End The Silence, children in orphanages can look forward to a life surrounded by a loving family. We have seen thousands of memories shared by artists and the public and each song has reminded them of cherished moments of their childhood. It is quite fitting that the performers of the classic ‘All You Need Is Love’, The Beatles, hold the most adored memories by the nation through a plethora of their hits. We are delighted that Sir Paul McCartney has also joined the campaign by sharing his most treasured memory.”
Hope and Homes for Children now invites the world to join Sir Paul McCartney to help End the Silence by sharing your musical memory with all donations by 27th December doubled by UK Aid – go to www.endthesilence.com or follow the hashtag #EndTheSilence to join in.

THAT TIME CHRIS FARLEY INTERVIEWED PAUL ON ‘SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE’

By Posted on 0 11

Chris Farley provided some of Saturday Night Live’s most enduring comedic moments. However, his recurring sketch, The Chris Farley Show, cemented his place in pop culture’s upper echelon.
The skit’s premise was simple. Farley portrayed a TV host who was nervous interviewing celebrities. He sounded audibly anxious, asked inappropriate questions and beat himself up when he realized he was totally messing up. The sketch only aired three times: twice in 1991 (which found him interviewing Jeff Daniels and Martin Scorsese, respectively) and once more a few years later, on February 13, 1993.

The latter skit found Farley interviewing Paul McCartney, who was on Saturday Night Live as musical guest to promote the recently released Off The Ground. Macca performed three songs during the episode: “Get Out Of My Way,” “Biker Like an Icon” and the Beatles’ “Hey Jude.” But before all that, he was in the hot seat on The Chris Farley Show, being asked questions such as “Did you see Terminator?” (“No, I missed that one,” Paul said dryly.)
Paul answered queries such as, “Remember when you were with the Beatles? That was awesome,” with patient kindness. “Yeah, it was,” Paul responded.

Later, Farley zeroed in one some of Macca’s more memorable life moments. “You remember when you were with the Beatles, and you were supposed to be dead, and, uh, there was all these clues, that, like, uh, you’d play some song backwards, and it’d say, like, ‘Paul Is Dead,’ and, uh, everyone thought that you were dead?” McCartney nodded in recognition, before Farley asked, “That was, um, a hoax, right?”
“Yeah, I wasn’t really dead,” Paul deadpanned.

Paul wasn’t as keen answering questions about being arrested and jailed for trying to bring marijuana into Japan, however, which caused Farley to call himself an idiot, then hit himself on the head in frustration and exclaim, “What a dumb question!”
Ever calm, Paul let him know, “No, no, no, Chris. I get asked that all the time in interviews. Maria Shriver asked the same question last week.” As the skit wound down, Paul once again reassured Farley that he did a good job – and sounded genuine, not patronizing, with his demeanor.

Farley was a Saturday Night Live cast member through 1995, and hosted the show in October 1997, but The Chris Farley Show never popped up again. Sadly, Farley died on December 18, 1997, of a drug overdose.
