Paul Interviewd by Pete Doherty in Observer
OBSERVER MUSIC MONTHLY: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEWS WITH LEGEND OF THE SIXTIES
The Observer Music Monthly this Sunday, 14 October, features exclusive interviews with icons of the sixties by contemporary musicians. Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty is allowed out of rehab for the afternoon to interview Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney, William Orbit talks to Sir Michael Caine about his recent chill-out album Cained and Beth Ditto interviews her all-time heroine, Yoko Ono.
Pete Doherty talks to Sir Paul McCartney about the punk movement.
"I remember being in traffic, in London, and when you're famous you try really hard not to get noticed so much, especially if you're in a traffic jam, and suddenly there was a bunch of punk kids, and I'm like, 'Oh no how's this going to work out? What's the attitude going to be?' and you're vaguely apprehensive, and they were great, they came up: 'Paul! Love that Mull of Kintyre , Paul!' So you realized it wasn't as one-sided as you thought everything was. It was a shake-up."
