This is how you need to do a Colbert interview: totally straight-faced. I can only assume that they edited out most of the bits where Paul was cacking himself laughing.

Colbert’s voice is actually better than Paul’s now. Which is pretty sad. And Nick. Where do you get off calling John “a dud”?! He came up with Imagine and Jealous Guy post-Beatles which are better than anything Paul wrote by himself.

Better than Yesterday?

Colbert was right about Paul having a great rock screaming voice (when he did).

But Steve did blow a final question.

“So Sir Paul, do you remember yesterday?”

“I do.”

“So why don’t you write a song about it? I hear nostalgia is making a comeback. Again.”

“It also shows that hes an intelligent, cultivated guy despite the popular image of him as someone who pumps out the lollipop music.”

By most accounts, it was Paul delving into more of the counter-culture action in late sixties London than John – who apparently spent a lot of his time then on a sofa in a Surrey stockbroker mansion watching TV.

However I reckon John wrote more memorable post-Beatles songs than Paul.

“Cold beatle…got me on the run”

And the words to “Working Class Hero” are as a chilling yet lyrical piece of English nihilism (in every sense) as anything by Larkin, Housman or Pinter at their most pissed off.

Two of most interesting immediately post-Beatle songs were John and Paul’s song duel – “How Do You Sleep” vs “Let Me Roll It”.

By the way Nick, forgot to thank you for that innovation speech. Bits of it are about to get ground up and sprinkled here and there in certain quarters.

Hope to see you Friday night.

“Hope to see you Friday night.”

And I forgot to add that you’d be one of few on the night to appreciate the deep undercover subtext I’ll sneaking in about electricity monopolies.

Magneto and Titanium Man is better than anything Lennon did after The Beatles.

Coming Up is not.
