With Q celebrating its 30th birthday with a special issue – out now in print and on digital – we’ve asked our first ever cover star Paul MCartney to do the introductions.
Setting the tone for the celebratory issue, the former Beatles speaks candidly in a new interview even revealing how he often likes to take the Tube.
“In New York or in Paris or in London, I sometimes take the Underground,” he tells Q’s Tom Doyle explaining that he doesn’t disguise himself.
“The thing about the Underground is nobody looks at anyone,” he adds. “If I do get somebody saying, ‘Are you Paul McCartney?’ I say, ‘Are you kidding? D’you think he’d be on the Underground?’ Then they go, ‘Oh yeah, well I suppose you’re right, yeah.'”
Get Q’s Birthday Issue now for more revelations, including how Macca didn’t realise he’d made the cut for Kanye West’s record and more as we celebrate the Modern Classics released in Q’s lifetime – print copies come with an exclusive CD and posters*.
