Sir Paul Mccartney - Paul Mccartney Warned Coronas Bassist Not To Split Up Band

Picture:

Sir Paul McCartney warned The Coronas' bassist not to break up the band.

The indie rock band - comprised of lead singer Danny O'Reilly, drummer Conor Egan, guitarist Dave McPhillips and Graham Knox on bass - opened for the former Beatles bass player in Dublin in 2010 and Danny revealed Paul was happy to joke about his own departure from the legendary group.

Danny exclusively told BANG Showbiz: ''We opened for McCartney at the RDS venue in Dublin two years ago and he was great. He came down to chat to us and we all got our picture taken with him, he got the peace signs out and everything for us. He's a legend and it doesn't get much better than meeting a Beatle. We're all massive Beatles fans so it was great.

''He was pretty funny, he goes to us, 'Which one of you plays the bass' and Knoxy our bassist said it was him and Paul goes 'Make sure you don't break up the band'. All very tongue in cheek but it was great. He was really cool.''

The 'Addicted To Progress' singer also revealed the band were impressed with 69-year-old Paul's enthusiasm for music and said they hope to still be rocking at his age.

He added: ''We got to watch him soundcheck and he played all these songs that he didn't play in the live gig, he was just messing around with his band so he'd turn around to the lads and go 'Penny Lane' and they'd play it.

!Watching it was amazing, it's great to see someone like that still loving what they do, after all these years he was soundchecking for two hours.''

The Coronas' album 'Closer To You' is out now in the UK.

Tongue in cheek or not, Paul likes to pretend he ended the Beatles when it was John Lennon who started and ended the Beatles. Although John wanted "a divorce", he was asked hold off announcing it due to a music promotion issue and he agreed. However, self-serving as usual, Paul announced it in conjunction with release of his own music. To this day he lives in his fantasy world regarding the beginning and end of the Beatles, a fantasy he continuously promotes. Makes it easy since too many journalists are too lazy to do their homework before they write articles. Before anyone goes ballastic, I'm not disregarding his talent, just his facts.

Tongue in cheek or not, as much as he likes to think of himself as the beginning and the end of the Beatles, he is not. John Lennon started the Beatles and John Lennon ended it. However, for promotional purposes related to their music, John agreed to hold off announcing "their divorce". However, Paul used the opportunity to announce it himself tying it in to a release of his own music, intimating he ended the band. As usual, he was self-serving. To this day he lives in that fantasy.
