    Steve Colbert gives the best Paul McCartney interview, ever

    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    Chris Farley gave the best McCartney interview ever IMO.

    "What is the most tender cut of the McCartney?"
    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.

    When watching this I thought...how does someone like Paul McCartney not have a manager who would let him know what he is getting into with Colbert...he was clueless going in.

    Colbert's guests, at least the one's he likes and respects, usually get prepped. There is footage of Colbert prepping John Kerry and explaining that he's playing a character.

    I saw it when it aired -- it was truly uncomfortable television. I hope McCartney's manager was fired on the spot for not warning him about what he was getting into.

    As if 'airing on Comedy Central' weren't enough of a hint . . .

    Re: Steve Colbert gives the best Paul McCartney interview, ever

    I was actually shocked that Colbert gave him the business. Regular viewers know that the McCartney interview was not the normal nightly Colbert interview...rather along the lines of "Better Know a District". Off the top of my head I can think of James Taylor,Willie Nelson,Yo Yo Ma,Toby Keith...and Colbert didn't try to make of fool of them...I wonder why he choose to do so to McCartney.

    Maybe he blew them off when they asked him to come in studio and play a song off the album -- it'd be the kind of response-interview I'd expect Colbert to give when the subject had been a jerk to him previously.

    I think folks are making more of this than what it really was. It looks to me like McCartney knows he's joking around. I thought, when I first saw it, that it was very stilted. It's mostly bad acting on McCartney's part. But this type of humour (as they'd spell it in "jolly old, jolly old") is very much something the Beatles would get. They were huge fans of Peter Sellers and helped out the folks who formed Monty Python (I know George produced a number of their movies). It wasn't Colbert's best stuff, although when I went back and watched again prior to responding to this thread, you can see they're both amused.

    Exactly. Just because Colbert is a better actor does not mean that Macca didn't know what was going on.

    Paul got what he wanted out of it.... a plug for his album Electronic Arguments.

    Paul has done so many of these "interviews" over the years. He knows what to expect and what is coming.

    I remember one done on SNL by Father Guido Sarducci who kept referencing every response Paul made back to smoking pot (Paul had just got busted/released in Japan).

    If you could be any animal Paul, what would it be?

    A koala bear.

    Oh yeah. Sitting all day up in that tree, getting stoned, eating euchalyptis leaves.
