Such A Class Act

The Beatles songs became a soundtrack for teens and young adults in the ’60s. They became the voice of a generation and they provided anthems for that decade. In September last year, Paul McCartney stopped by for a chat on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to mainly promote his new children’s book titled “Hey Grandude!”

Colbert himself admits he doesn’t always get starstruck with his guests but of course, it’s different with McCartney. Colbert says, “When I have a musician on, especially one I admire, I can get a little starstruck because what musicians do… it’s mysterious to me. There’s some magic in it where you’re able to reach inside of our hearts and our minds and our souls and you change something.”

McCartney insists he’s still just that kid who grew up in Liverpool. Even though during The Beatles heyday, they were followed around and always greeted by thousands of screaming fans, McCartney admits he still gets surprised at how people react to him. McCartney reveals, “I’m also very happy that songs that I just wrote originally just to make some money.. But the fact that these songs then get into people’s heads and they have this meaning, I mean, that’s the biggest bonus you can have.”
