In his latest ever interview, McCartney talked with Tina Benitez-Eves of American Song Writer and shared his feelings about his latest album as well as how did he and John Lennon manage to make unforgettable songs together. According to Paul, they could fill in anything they needed and that’s the only thing they needed.
Here is what McCartney said:
“Me and John were very excited to work with each other. I could fill in anything he needed, he could fill in anything I needed, so I don’t really think we had too many forgettable songs.”
And here is what he said about working with St. Vincent:
“There was none of this ‘Well, I’ll see you tomorrow, and we’ll see what we can do.’ I’d go around with my guitar and write the song. It was very concise.
I often say to young bands now ‘Just get the song done before you go in the studio, then you’re a cheap date, and the producer is going to love you. You’re not going to waste anybody’s time. Just go and bang the song out with all the energy.”
