Top-10 Paul McCartney Quotes

  • “The basic thing in my mind was that for all our success The Beatles were always a great little band. Nothing more, nothing less.”
  • “John and I wrote together something like 300 songs, just short of 300. We would meet up, sit down to write and three hours later we would have a song. And never, never did we have a dry session, we always wrote a song.”
  • “By the time we made Abbey Road, John and I were openly critical of each other's music, and I felt John wasn't much interested in performing anything he hadn't written himself.”
  • “I'm really glad that most of our songs were about love, peace and understanding.”
  • “I can't really describe what direction I'm going in musically, because it's ever-changing ... I have my personal influences, and they come from everywhere ... sounds I heard on the radio, sounds I heard my father play on the piano, sounds I found myself in rock & roll, sounds that the group made. My music is all that - very personal - especially now that it's one person putting it down instead of four.”
  • “I like to collaborate on songs. If I have to just go out in another room and write - it is too much like work - like doing your homework. If I can have Linda working with me, then it becomes like a game. It's fun. So we wrote about 10 songs and then we discovered that it was becoming too much like work. We were getting serious about writing. And I've never been serious.”
  • “I think what people have done with religion is personified good and evil, so good's become God with 'o' out, and evil's become Devil with a 'd' added. That's my theory of religion.”
  • “If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.”
  • “You can judge a man's true character by the way he treats his fellow animals.”
  • “There are only four people who knew what the Beatles were about anyway.”
