Recently, Paul McCartney appeared on The Colbert Report to talk about the reissue of “Wings Over America,” from his 1970s band Wings. During the interview, Colbert asked him why he brought Linda on the road with him:
Colbert: “It was important to you to be producing music, creating music, and be traveling around with your wife. Why was that important to you to be with Linda in the band? Was that a way to…make a better marriage?”
“No, it’s just…I liked her.”
Best, most genuine/endearing/heartfelt response ever. (Sorry, Jennifer Garner.)
The whole thing is worth watching, but skip to around 3:30 for the clip.
