Paul McCartney didn’t hold back in a new interview with “GQ,” opening up about his wild sexcapades during The Beatles heyday, which, believe it or not, included a group masturbation session with bandmate John Lennon and three friends.
“What it was, was over at John’s house, and it was just a group of us,” the 76-year-old rock legend tells the mag. “And instead of just getting roaring drunk and partying—I don’t even know if we were staying over or anything—we were all just in these chairs, and the lights were out, and somebody started masturbating, so we all did.”
If that’s not crazy enough, Sir Paul shares that the group then began shouting out names to help move things along. “We were just, ‘Brigitte Bardot! Whoo!’ And then everyone would thrash a bit more,” he said, although Lennon chimed in with Winston Churchill which wasn’t exactly helpful.
McCartney notes, “I think it was a one-off. Or maybe it was like a two-off. It wasn’t a big thing. But, you know, it was just the kind of thing you didn’t think much of. It was just a group.” He adds, “Yeah, it’s quite raunchy when you think about it. There’s so many things like that from when you’re a kid that you look back on and you’re, ‘Did we do that?’ But it was good harmless fun. It didn’t hurt anyone. Not even Brigitte Bardot.”
Other shocking tidbits from the article:
- He shares a story of ordering two hookers while in Las Vegas. “I had them, and it was a wonderful experience. But that’s the closest I ever came to an orgy,” he says. “See, the thing is, in the next room I think the guys might have ordered something else off the menu. … it was all bacchanalian.”
- As for rumors Lennon said he was Jesus Christ, McCartney notes, “I don't remember that. I think I would have remembered that,” adding, “He was the kind of guy that could do that. I don't remember him actually ever doing it.”
- While Paul and John were on good terms before John’s death, Paul does have at least one regret. "I was very lucky because before he died we had a good relationship, so I think it would have just got better and better as we matured," he shares. "I probably would have been able to tell him what a fan of his I was now. These days, I can tell everyone else, and I think I would have been able to tell him now.”
- Kanye West almost produced McCartney's latest album "Egypt Station." “[Kanye West] did very kindly offer to produce this album,” he shared. “And then I thought, no, I kind of knew what direction I wanted to go in. And I knew that would be very different from where Kanye would go with it.”
