As a former Beatles member, one can only imagine the kind of attention that Paul McCartney would receive. From the peak of Beatlemania to this date, women still scream whenever they see Sir Paul for the first time. Usually, one would assume that Paul would consider stopping for fans and giving them autographs a regular part of his life. However, after more than six decades of doing so, he has finally grown tired. While talking to Reader’s Digest, Sir Paul McCartney said that he always found autographs strange, saying:

It always struck me as a bit strange. ‘Here, can I write your name down on the back of this till receipt please?’ Why? We both know who I am.

Furthermore, Paul McCartney even found selfies miserable. Instead, he would prefer to have a chat with his fans and know about their lives, saying:

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

The remaining two Beatles are thrilled to watch Peter Jackson’s upcoming documentary on the fab four

Apart from the ban on autographs by Sir Paul McCartney, he is definitely looking forward to watching Peter Jackson’s upcoming documentary The Beatles: Get Back. The three-part documentary series will focus on the recording sessions while the Beatles were recording their album Let It Be, which was previously set to be called Get Back. This time is famous in the history of the fab four as the perception was that they were fighting with each other regularly. However, both Sir Paul and Ringo Starr were happy that this documentary also shows the moments when all four of them, including John Lennon and George Harrison, were happy with each other. Sir Paul said:

They put some joy in! That was always my argument—we were laughing and angry.

Apart from that, Paul McCartney also revealed that it was John Lennon who actually broke the band up. Furthermore, he said he actually wanted the Beatles to continue. He said:

I didn’t instigate the split. That was our Johnny… This was my band, this was my job, this was my life, so I wanted it to continue.
