Paul’s answering some interesting questions

In one of the interviews with Stephen Colbert, he was asked by the host why some people become Paul McCartney, and other people become Stephen Colbert

Paul replied with a word seriously and then went on explaining that his father was very musical, and when young, he used to listen to a lot of what his father did. 

So, due to it, a lot of music went in. Further, he continued saying that he listened to the record and watched movies and stuff. 

So, Paul always thought that his computer got loaded with a lot of data from the various songs he had heard, including all the old songs. 

Later, when it was his turn to write, he kind of printed it all out. Paul shared that, in his view, a lot of information was there in his brain and a lot of stuff and reference. 

Paul also says that his family was also musical, and they all would have musical evenings, all the old ladies, all the old aunties who would be beautifully singing all the songs and getting gradually more and more drunk. 

Also, Paul kept continuing and says that his father portrayed the role of a pianist. So, basically, it used to be all the old songs. 

Sadly, as of now, his dad got arthritis, that’s why for a change, Paul became the pianist for that. 

Paul says that when he finally started to write, he had a lot of clues and ideas as to how to write, plus he also added that he is a genius.

Paul also accepted that he is recommending the young people just to be genius. Paul also says that his first tour in the United States was pretty cool, though. 

Paul stated that it was totally magical because they all loved American Music, and still they do. 

Paul also revealed that everything they sang except the stuff they wrote themselves was American. 

So, the artist says that they come to America for the first time, come to New York as kids who kind of made it over in England

Paul recalls them being little gits. Therefore, they felt this was all cool, getting the cigarettes out, etc. 

Lastly, Paul also says that it was everything that they expected and even more.
