A Cheeky Request For Mccartney
SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY refused a fan's cheeky request to sign her bottom during his show in London on Sunday (27Jun10) - because he didn't want to be distracted from his set.
The former Beatle was headlining the Hard Rock Calling music festival in the British capital's Hype Park, which had seen performances from Stevie Wonder and Pearl Jam over the weekend, and 50,000 loyal devotees turned out to see him sing.
MCCartney laughed when he spotted one woman's banner, which asked him to sign her bottom, telling the crowd, "We got one here that says, 'Sign my butt and I'll get it tattooed'. The answer to that is no."
He explained to the audience he usually ignores placards so he can give shows his full attention.
The veteran singer treated fans to his own solo songs as well as Wings and Beatles tracks, including All My Loving and The Long And Winding Road.
