'You Gave Me The Answer' - Emi asks...
Paul recently completed his first tour of Japan for 11 years culminating last Thursday with a triumphant show to just under 50,000 fans at the Tokyo Dome. The tour saw Paul perform six sold out dates spread across Osaka, Fukuoka and Tokyo.
Stand out moments from Paul's trip include: being met by thousands of excited fans at Osaka airport, watching sumo wrestling in Fukuoka and meeting with survivors of the Fukushima disaster in Tokyo.
To celebrate the tour PaulMcCartney.com sat down with Paul to do a Japan-related Q&A, including Japanese fan questions submitted through 'You Gave Me The Answer'. We posted five of the Q&As in English and Japanese during Paul's tour and now, for this month's 'You Gave Me The Answer', we publish the sixth and final one.
The question was submitted by Emi, who asks:
“Where do you write your songs?” ポールへの質問 「どこで曲を書いているのですか？」（エミさん・日本）
Just before leaving for Japan Paul told us:
"To write my songs I find a quiet corner of the house so I can develop it in private. Then, when I think they are finished, I can come out and play them to my family and friends. So the song may be written in the cellar or an attic, some sort of quiet room or my music room at home." ポールの回答 「曲をかく時は、こっそりと作れるように家の中で静かな片隅を探して、出来上がってきたら家族や友達の前でプレイする。地下室か屋根裏部屋、静かな部屋、家にある音楽室で作られることが多い。」
