    this interview was so genuine. Its rare to see talk show hosts being real to the person they're interviewing.

    I deadass thought he was coming out as the second Paul McCartney because of the thumbnail... not to mention he keeps talking about how he’s the man behind the famous person or something

    I've been in love with the Beatles' music ever since I was a little kid in the 1960s. It is ageless, and Paul McCartney IS a genius. The team of Lennon and McCartney was unbeatable.

    What I learnt from Paul : You don't have to kill your inner child But rather protect your inner child in order to grow up.

    So lucky to live in this era. No great artist ever has had his lifework and "who is the real you?" asked as well as this, and responded as well as Paul did here, and have it recorded for posterity. These are the sort of questions we'd love to put to Shakespeare, Mozart, Lennon, and we never could. We guess, in the dark. These are the once-in-a-lifetime greats who's lives we pick over, trying to guess the answer to questions such as these - and here, just for once, we have it. The questions, and also the answers.

    My favourite, of all his great (and short!) answers - "I was a fan too". He was in a very difficult spot there, respectful of Colbert's fan-like fawning, and in a flash came up with the answer.

    This guy uses Paul McCartney's name but he is not the original Paul. 'Faul' is nothing more than a celebrity imitator. The real Paul McCartney disappeared in late 1966, legally today he would be considered dead. ,;,;;;;

    In 1964 like all English kids, you'd get a tennis racket and pretend you were a Beatle or chop off a kart wheels and stick them in the ground and be Ringo, all kids did then

    Oh I love him so much. Shows how down to earth he really is, he admits he was never trying to do anything profound. He was just doing his job and yet he's so important to millions and millions of people because of what his music has meant to us. Astonishing. The pity of it is - he doesn't have anyone like "Paul McCartney" to admire and love like we do...
