The Beatles great Paul McCartney says sometimes when he uses public transport and people recognize him, he often acts like someone else. The 73-year-old Beatles legend enjoys travelling by public transport, but on the occasions where a fellow traveller spots him, he insists they are mistaken about his identity, reported Femalefirst.
“I like travelling on public transport. Ever since I was a kid I would always take a bus and go a few stops and get off just to have a look around. In New York or in Paris or in London, I sometimes take the Underground. The thing about the Underground is nobody looks at anyone.
“If I do get somebody saying, ‘Are you Paul McCartney?’ I say, ‘Are you kidding? Do you think he’d be on the Underground?’ Then they go, ‘Oh yeah, well, I suppose you’re right’,” McCartney said.
