Paul McCartney: 'I F–ked Up'

Paul McCartney Explains Poor Performance

Paul McCartney has been playing live for over 50 years. He knows there are a million things that can go wrong when playing a live concert in front of the entire world.

But it turns out that during the London Olympics, there were a million and one.

We all saw the former Beatle's sub-par performance at the Opening Ceremony, but what went wrong? Paul says:

"I f–ked up. I was supposed to wait for a cue. But I forgot. Why? Well, there's this bloody great bell that we didn't know about. It was deafening…

We prerecorded a playback in case all hell broke loose… We were live, everyone was there, the world was ready and this bloody great bell goes off.

And I forget I've gotta wait for it, so I go, 'Hey Jude', and someone presses the playback. So there's me on the backing track, and actual me; two of us singing.

The drummer wouldn't look at me because he was in hysterics and I was thinking, 'What have I done?' There was no stopping, it was the Olympics."

Guess he WASN'T saved by the bell!

We forgive you, Paul! Besides, you're the songwriter! When you mess up, it's a last-minute rewrite! LOLz!

    He's a legend and doesnt have to prove himself anymore. Shit happens when live. I didnt even notice anyways!

    Sir Paul fucked up. At least he did not turn to his band, blaming them, with profanities.

    Awww, I love Paul. He's obviously a god; Who cares about one slightly wonky performance when he has been performing and writing beautiful, perfect music for over fifty years.



  5. 5

    Sounded fine to me!

    It was just a short-lived glitch at the beginning of the song. There is no need for anyone to say his entire performance was lousy… it wasn't! He was classic Paul McCartney. And he was amazing as always.

    If it had been anyone else, they would a big deal about him lip sinking.
