AUDIO INTERVIEW: Paul McCartney- A Giant among rock immortals.

Paul McCartney talks to Rolling Stone about the 40th anniversary of Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band

Rolling Stone magazine is (no pun intended) rolling out all the stops for its 40th anniversary.  They have a special issue coming out, there is talk about an archive DVD/CD-ROM covering each and every issue of the magazine.  Interesting to Beatle fans, though, is a series of audio interviews that they have done with twenty artists who have shaped the history that Rolling Stone magazine has covered.  No surprise here, but one of the first interviews that they have posted  is with a certain Sir Paul McCartney.  Mostly, this interview covers Sgt. Pepper and it’s own 40th anniversary, but it’s always nice to hear new audio interviews with any Beatle.

  • You can listen to the interview in podcast length segments here.

Here’s what we’ve read.

For our fortieth anniversary, the editors of Rolling Stone interviewed twenty artists and leaders who helped shape our time. Over the next four weeks, every day, we’ll be debuting exclusive audio clips from the Q&As, giving you unparalleled access to some of the most important personalities in history.

It’s been almost forty years ago today since Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play, and we’re marking the occasion (as well as our own 40th anniversary) by bringing you this interview with Sir Paul McCartney. As one half of the greatest songwriting tandem ever, McCartney helped shape the entire course of rock & roll music. He’s widely considered the most successful artist in pop music history; his “Yesterday” is the most covered song ever; he refuses to sit on leather chairs.

Speaking to Anthony DeCurtis, McCartney reminisces about the circumstances that surrounded the recording of the 1967 masterpiece, why everyone still loves the Beatles, his philosophy for saving the world, as well as his memories of John and George. Listen to five highlights from the conversation, and for the magazine’s definitive profile, pick up your own iridescent copy of our Fortieth Anniversary issue, on newsstands now.
