Paul McCartney: All Instruments and Voices

I originally cut it on my farm in Scotland; I did a little version with just me as the nutty professor, doing everything and getting into my own world like a laboratory. The absent-minded professor is what I go like when I'm doing those; you get so into yourself it's weird, crazy. But I liked it. You know, I heard a story recently from a guy who used to record with John [Lennon] in New York, and he said that John would get lazy - but then he'd hear a song of mine where he thought, 'Oh, shit, Paul's putting it in, Paul's working!" Apparently that was one song that got John recording again. I think John just thought, 'Uh-oh, I better get working, too'. I thought that was a nice story." (Paul McCartney, 2001)
