The Clash Podcast:

Launching with an exclusive interview with Paul McCartney


Clash Magazine announces the premiere of its Podcast featuring the one and only Sir Paul McCartney, taken from Clash Magazine's recent front cover interview with legendary ambassador of British music.

The Editor Simon Harper launches into the Q+A with McCartney about:

1) Why Macca requested to be in Clash??

2) Why does he think our readership is relevant to his music, seen as dated elsewhere?

3) Why did he sign to Starbucks - a global evil?

Macca goes on to discusses his legacy, The Beatles' quality control and highly sensitive pretension meter, his method for dealing with overzealous fans, why Sgt Peppers was his baby, and even gives a generous insight into the songwriting process with an exclusive example.

Life-long Beatles fan and Clash Editor, Simon Harper, met Sir Paul armed with pages of questions and challenged him to justify his place as the magazine's cover star. After he personally requested to be covered by our burgeoning indie music publication.

Paul responded with his usual charm, modesty and one of the most revealing interviews in years.

This will also constitute one of the freshest and most up to date online audio interviews available anywhere with a former Beatle.

The launch Podcast details over 20 mins of fascinating insight into the mind of this genius with a follow up episode of 10 minutes a week later.
