We have a tendency to remember big news events and where we were when we first heard about them. Earlier this year, we heard many delightful stories from fans who remembered seeing The Beatles for the first time on the Ed Sullivan Show.
Over the past few years we’ve been spoilt for big events here at PaulMcCartney.com too with Paul performing live at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee concert, the opening ceremony of the Olympics and the 12-12-12 benefit, to name just three!
Bill Salter from the USA has been in touch to ask Paul where he was during another important news story. He asks,
“Paul, who were you with and where did you watch man first land on the moon?”
We caught up with Paul recently to find out. He replied,
“Thank you for your question, Bill. As I remember it, Neil Armstrong first walked on the moon in the middle of the night and I was in bed with Linda in London while we watched it. A pretty amazing night!”
Years later, in November 2005, Paul became the first musician to broadcast a live performance out to space when he played ‘English Tea’ from his Chaos and Creation in the Backyard album to the astronauts on the International Space Station.
We’d love to hear your stories from your favourite Paul-related world news events in the comments below…
