Paul McCartney Explains His Performance Issues at the London Olympics
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 12.10.2012



Paul McCartney has taken full responsibility for his performance flub at the London Olympics Opening ceremony. McCartney told NME that the moment when he started singing "Hey Jude" early and fell out of time with his pre-recorded vocals and backing track was all his fault.

"I f**ked up," the former Beatle said. "I was supposed to wait for a cue. But I forgot. Why? Well, there's this bloody great bell that we didn't know about. It was deafening... We prerecorded a playback in case all hell broke loose... We were live, everyone was there, the world was ready and this bloody great bell goes off. And I forget I've gotta wait for it, so I go, 'Hey Jude', and someone presses the playback. So there's me on the backing track, and actual me; two of us singing. The drummer wouldn't look at me because he was in hysterics and I was thinking, 'What have I done?' There was no stopping, it was the Olympics."
