"He rewrites history."
That’s what Philip Norman, the author of “Shout” says about Paul McCartney at the end of Rotten Apple 34. Sometimes the lies are so blatant, you wonder if he believes anybody is listening. In a new campaign on behalf of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Paul says that his desire to become a vegetarian stemmed from a fishing trip. (Story from Reuters). We all know that for years Paul had been telling the story of how he and Linda were eating lamb one day and then noticed the sheep grazing out the window. (Story from Ezine)
Granted, sometimes there can be contradictory truths, but he does do this a lot. Remember when he said that it was fun to do Sgt. Pepper with U2 at Live 8 because he had not done the song since he originally recorded it? That makes it hard to figure out how it ended up on those live albums that preceded the Live 8 performance.
So, how can we believe him when he says, “That was me at the scout pamp”?? Scout pamp? Pamp?
