Paul McCartney gave an unannounced Q&A session and album release party for his New album yesterday (October 9th) in New York City, according to USA Today.
The former Beatle appeared during a special “master class” at Queen’s Frank Sinatra School of the Arts.
McCartney gave several shout-outs to his wife Nancy Shevell, who was with him celebrating their second wedding anniversary — and next Tuesday’s album release (October 15th) — while answering some of the kids’ questions and playing a 13-song set.
“Macca” was asked about the greatest lesson he learned over the course of career, and answered, “When I first started out, I was terrified of doing anything wrong on stage. People don’t mind. In fact, people kind of like it. It doesn’t matter as much as you think it does. You can relax a bit more.”
On where he gets his inspiration: “You get it from a lot of things. I often use the past, things that have happened to me in the past. If it’s a love song, that would be my loved ones.”
