This afternoon I was in Manhattan with my wife. We were walking on 5th avenue. I was doing an email while I was walking and my wife nudged me and said look up, there is Paul McCartney.
Well, I look up and he was right in front of me. We both stopped, reach out our hands, stood about 12" apart and began to chat. He held my right hand between his two hands at chests height, I turned red. My Wife began to speak to the Lady he was with and also apologized for the interruption. I apologized to Paul for taking his time and he said it was all his pleasure. We chatted for a moment, I told him that I was slightly younger than him, and I loved him since I was a boy. He was gracious and was everything I hope he would be. I played Beatle's music from 1963 when I first heard them, and I always will.
I had tears in my eyes as a walked up 5th Avenue. I felt like a little kid again. Knowing all his music, being I guess 9 years younger than Paul, he inspired me in my music. I know every song. I must say, there would be no one I would of wanted to meet or that I admire more.
