A lot of famous musicians have written memoirs recounting the highlights of their careers and personal lives, but Paul McCartney says he currently has no plans to become one of them.
The rock legend explained his feelings about whether he’d ever pen an autobiography in the latest installment of the “You Gave Me the Answer” feature on his official website.
Responding to a question by a Canadian fan, Sir Paul said, “My feeling is that there have been enough books on me done already. But from time to time I do think of certain little memories that are not published in any books so, who knows?”
He added, “If I ever find the time it could possibly happen. But I think you can guess from my answer that I’m not in any hurry to be doing it…!”
Perhaps the closest McCartney has come to writing a memoir was the 1998 book Many Years from Now, which was penned by Barry Miles and based on hours of exclusive interviews Sir Paul gave to the author.
Of course, the 72-year-old former Beatle is as busy as ever this year. He’s enjoying his first top 10 single in nearly 30 years thanks to his collaboration with Rihanna and Kanye West, “FourFiveSeconds,” he also has a project in the works with Lady Gaga and he’ll begin a series of 2015 tour dates in April with a brief Japan trek.
