Sir James Paul McCartney, CH, MBE ist ein britischer Musiker, Singer-Songwriter, Komponist, Oscar- sowie mehrfacher Grammy-Preisträger. Weltweit bekannt wurde er als Sänger und Bassist der Beatles, für die er zusammen mit John Lennon die meisten Stücke schrieb.

Zitate Paul McCartney

„Du schadest meinem Image.“

—  Paul McCartney

zu John Lennon, zitiert in: DIE ZEIT, 27. November 2005, zeit.de http://www.zeit.de/online/2005/48/john_lennon_8
The banter between them, joking but with serious undertones, continued during that evening. Paul said, 'You're bad for my image!' John retorted, 'You're soft. Shurrup and watch the telly like a good boy.' - Ray Coleman: Lennon. McGraw-Hill, 1985. p. 200

„While the others had got married and moved out to suburbia, I had stayed in London and got into the arts scene through friends like Robert Fraser and Barry Miles and papers like The International Times.“

—  Paul McCartney

We opened the Indica gallery with John Dunbar, Peter Asher and people like that. I heard about people like John Cage, and that he’d just performed a piece of music called 4’33” (which is completely silent) during which if someone in the audience coughed he would say, ‘See?’ Or someone would boo and he’d say, ‘See? It’s not silence—it’s music.’ I was intrigued by all of that. So these things started to be part of my life. I was listening to Stockhausen; one piece was all little plink-plonks and interesting ideas. Perhaps our audience wouldn’t mind a bit of change, we thought, and anyway, tough if they do! We only ever followed our own noses—most of the time, anyway. ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ was one example of developing an idea.
The Beatles Anthology (2000), p. 212

And what's wrong with that?
