‘I’m having fun’
McCartney enjoying chance to share stories about Beatles
TORONTO — Paul McCartney says sharing the raunchier stories of his days in the Beatles doesn’t faze him anymore and he’s getting a kick out of knowing others enjoy the tales.
The 76-year-old musician recently spilled the dirt on the Fab Four in the pages of GQ. One memory involved the time he and his bandmates applauded the loss of George Harrison’s virginity and in another McCartney fessed up to hiring two Las Vegas prostitutes.
“I’m not really trying to get attention, I’m having fun,” the musician said in a phone interview from Quebec.
“I have a feeling that you can actually sort of say a bit more these days than you would’ve wanted to say in previous years.”
