Quotation of Paul Mccartney


The strange thing is, we never owned our own publishing; it was always getting bought and sold.
Quotation of Paul Mccartney


The whole thing with Wings and then that being a success, y'know, with Linda. That was really exciting, but in different ways.

Quotation of Paul Mccartney


To keep the record straight, it wasn't always John and Yoko. We've all accused one another of various business things; we tend to be pretty paranoid by now, as you can imagine. There's a lot of money involved.

Quotation of Paul Mccartney


When we were starting off as kids, just the idea of maybe going to do this as a living instead of getting what we thought was going to be a boring job, was exciting.
Quotation of Paul Mccartney


When you first get money, you buy all these things so no one thinks you're mean, and you spread it around. You get a chauffeur and you find yourself thrown around the back of this car and you think, I was happier when I had my own little car! I could drive myself!
Quotation of Paul Mccartney


When you get the money, you still need to keep going; you don't stop. There has to be something else. I think it's the freedom to do what you want and to live your dreams.
Quotation of Paul Mccartney


Where I come from, you don't really talk about how much you're earning. Those things are private. My dad never told my mum how much he was earning. I'm certainly not going to tell the world. I'm doing well.
Quotation of Paul Mccartney


With Come Together, John wanted a piano lick to be very swampy and smoky, and I played it that way and he liked that a lot. I was quite pleased.
