ENGLAND (CelebrityAccess) For an old dude, Paul McCartney sure knows how to get around.
Sir Paul is currently stomping around England, drumming up press reports wherever he goes, and he’s going to some pretty iconic places. McCartney spent Monday in front of the Abbey Roads studio, reenacting the famous cover of the Abbey Road album. His daughter, Mary McCartney, captured the moment on Instagram. McCartney is promoting his upcoming album, Egypt Station.
Then, yesterday, it was off to have a Q&A with Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, a school he founded in 1996. McCartney covered several topics, including how technology could hinder the creative process.
“The process that John and I used…was just basically to sit down, to come up with a bit of an idea of a song, and finish it and keep doing it and doing it until you got to the end, and then you’d written a [whole] song which I think was good rather than having a little fragment, a little sketch that maybe months later and you’ll be trying to recapture the vibe that you did listening to it,” McCartney said. “I don’t think it’s a good a system…it’s too easy to put ideas down now.”
And, within a few hours, McCartney is expected to be on stage at the Cavern Club, where McCartney and the rest of the Fab Four got their chops in the early 1960s. Well, not exactly the Cavern Club: the new venue is across the street from the original location. Photos of people hovering out front of the venue in the middle of the day are already online.
