Paul McCartney has recently revealed that he once masturbated with John Lennon and saw God on a drug trip. Yet, possibly the biggest revelation of all is that the ex-Beatle — who’s [sic] highly-acclaimed 17th solo album, Egypt Station, has just been released — manages to pass unnoticed on the London Underground.
“If I’m on a train, I see everybody else just looking at their screens,” McCartney tells BBC News. “But I’m looking out: ‘Oh look, there’s the London Eye! There’s the River Thames!’”
McCartney continues, “Sometimes they do look up and they take a little picture and they sell it to the newspaper. And this is the price of fame.”
The songwriter recently put this to the test in the lead up to his concert in New York’s Grand Central Station by wandering through the atrium and filming the audience on his iPhone — “just to get a feel of it,” he explains to the BBC. He wasn’t noticed once.
