In an interview for Mojo Magazine Paul McCartneyrevealed his former manager tried to talk him into retiring at the tender age of 50.
That was over 19 years and many studio albums and tours ago. Now the 69-year-old musician is soon to complete a tour of baseball stadiums including a July 24 stop at Comerica Park!But according to Paul McCartney he can’t retire because he’s not working!
“People say to me ‘You work so hard.’ We don’t work hard, we play music… we don’t work music. It sounds simplistic but it’s really true. It’s not like going into an office.”
Ah, isn’t it refreshing to hear a famous musician who is honest about his lot in life? Sigh.
