Sir Paul Mccartney - Mccartney Enjoys Talking To Fans On Public Transport

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY refuses to let his superstardom limit where he can go out in public and likes nothing better than mingling with fans while taking public transport.
The Beatles legend admits he is no stranger to hopping on a bus on occasion and he's learned that the best way to deal with his starstruck fellow travellers is to engage them in casual conversation.
He tells U.S. talk show host Jimmy Fallon, "There's a lot of places you can go to where people kind of understand that you're on private time. But I kinda go anywhere. I don't like the idea that you get famous and it ruins it for you, it's kind of a sad idea.
"Two years ago I was on a bus in New York... and people were (staring). They don't let on. Except this African American woman. I sat down quietly and she turns around and goes, 'You Paul MCCartney?' So I said, 'Yes I am' and you can see all these other people (giggling). And she goes, 'What are you doing on a bus?' I said, 'I'm going uptown, like you are. Come sit with me.' So she came round and sat next to me and I said, 'Where are you going?' 'I'm going to see my sister...' We were just (chatting). But in that situation, you just do that and people are cool."
