SiriusXM podcast and radio host Howard Stern published his latest book, “Howard Stern Comes Again” and he stated that admitted that it wasn’t a good experience to interview with Paul McCartney.
Here’s what he said:
“I’ve been asked, ‘Was it fun to interview Paul McCartney, your childhood hero?’ No. There is no enjoyment in it whatsoever. The pressure is so intense, the sense of responsibility so enormous. I want to please the audience and I desperately want to please Paul.
I’d love to please myself, but I know that’s not going to happen. No matter what I ask him, no matter how well the interview goes, he’s going to walk out of that studio and I’m going to obsess over all the questions I did not ask. That’s how I feel after every interview, no matter who it is. Honestly, it’s never fun. But it’s not about fun. It’s about having a job to do, and trying to do it well.
Reading this interview back over, I think I did that. Just because it’s not ‘fun’ doesn’t mean I’m not able to appreciate it. Are you kidding? It’s mind-blowing. If someone had told me when I was a little boy that one day I’d get to sit in the same room with Paul McCartney and talk to him, I don’t know what I would have said. It would have just seemed impossible.”
