ROLLING Stone Interview Paul
Rolling Stone recently had an interview with Paul about his Out There tour, the fun he's having playing live, selecting songs for the set, and... retiring. No... not yet, he loves it too much playing live. Or as he says himself: '...I did that show last night, and I'm thinking, "Jesus, God, man. You know, you're not 25." But then, my other side of my head's going, "Yes, you are! Get on with it!"

PETE BEST in Lima

Lima, Jun 15.- Pete Best, was declared an "illustrious visitor" by the mayor of the Lima district of San Miguel, Salvador Heresi, who is a huge Beatles fan.
Best arrived in the Peruvian capital to give a concert on Sunday in honor of his ex-musical group called "A Day in the Life," together with Peruvian musicians and singers who are fans of The Beatles.
The mayor of San Miguel invited Best to visit the park and monument dedicated to John Lennon, and Pete then sang several of the group's songs accompanied by other Peruvian musicians.
In a statement on Peru's RPP radio, the drummer said he had "no fear" of playing with the surviving members of the band - Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr - though he doubted that such a session would ever happen.
Best said he would have liked to play with them on "The White Album" because he considers it to be the most varied of all their records.
The musician said he finally got even with Ringo Starr by getting to Peru before him.
Ringo is scheduled to do a concert in Lima next November.

MARK LEWISOHN: new BOOK soon
‘It all boils down to this.
They were four war babies from Liverpool who really did change the world,
and whose music and impact still lives on in so many ways, after all these years.
I say, let’s scrub what we know, or think we know, and start over:
Who really were these people, and how did it all happen?'’
