Could you imagine spending your entire adult life being one of the most famous people on the planet? Truthfully, as much as I would wish and dream for it, it must be total hell. I imagine you have to be a pretty guarded individual. You have to constantly worry about the things you say, and the things you do in the court of public opinion.
I really don’t find what Paul says as too revealing. It’s his way of coping. I just find it interesting that he twists it around to focus on The Fireman. Yes, we know that Paul’s creative muses have many faces, but it’s a bit of it as a stretch to say it’s another personna. Yes, The Fireman-leanings of Paul McCartney are different, but it’s still a McCartney record afterall. Just a thought.
Paul on The View (Part I)
Paul on The View (Part II)
Here’s what we’ve read.
Paul McCartney keeps fame from driving him crazy by maintaining two versions of himself.
McCartney tells ABC’s “The View” he separates the real Paul from the famous Paul. He says Famous Paul does the shows and Real Paul goes home and watches TV.
He extended that idea to his music. He says normally he sings at the high end of his range, but he dropped to his lower range for his new album, “Electric Arguments.” He released that album under his alter ego, The Fireman.
There’s only one audience where McCartney has to fight to prove he’s famous: young girls. He says they know him only as the father of fashion designer Stella McCartney.
