‘I’m hav­ing fun’

The Prince George Citizen - - A & E - David FRIEND

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.”
