Paul McCartney is eager to release more music. The rock legend is working to finish “Now and Then” from his mid-90’s ‘Anthology’ project.
McCartney already has two of the three John Lennon singles, "Free As a Bird" and "Real Love," marked off, but still needs to finish "Now and Then," from ‘Anthology.’
That is the one that George Harrison called "rubbish," even though it's a Yoko Ono-approved track.
Harrison was a tough critic. McCartney told The New Yorker in an interview that it was decided that only he and Lennon would write songs for The Beaatles. “We never said, ‘Let’s keep George out of it,’ but it was implied,” Sir Paul said.
McCartney also talked about frequent comparisons to The Rolling Stones, saying, “I’m not sure I should say it, but they’re a blues cover band, that’s sort of what the Stones are. I think our net was cast a bit wider than theirs.”
McCartney will turn 80 next June and has to wear a hearing aid, but he still wants to tour and work long into the future. “I’ve been doing this for a long time. So another me takes over: Professional Performing Paul -- the triple ‘P’!... I plan to continue living. That’s the central idea.”
The complete McCartney interview, centered on the upcoming Get Back documentary, is online and in the October 18th edition of the magazine. The deluxe reissue of the Let It Be album will be released this Friday.
