Mccartney Reveals Rubbish Hobby
Former BEATLE SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY refuses to fritter away his fortune on expensive antiques, preferring to pick out artifacts from other people's rubbish bins.
The singer admits he's addicted to combing trash cans looking for leftovers, and boasts he's picked out a handful of gems recently - including a sailboat.
He says, "I'm the kind of guy who doesn't like to see things in skips. I go past a skip and I'll say, 'I could use that. That's a cupboard, that's a nice bit of wood.'
"I'll see a rubbish heap and see an odd bit of a bicycle or something and think, 'Picasso's Bull's Head'. I'll think, 'Interesting shape that,' because he used the bike seat didn't he. Only last night I saw some stuff in a skip and had to be pulled away.
"(Once) I found a white pillow case with a zip. It had paint stains on it from a house painter. I found a real sponge in the Caribbean too. So I rinsed it out and it went in the pillow case and I use that for washing the sailboat."
