Sir Paul McCartney, when asked about the death of pop star, Michael Jackson, said he wasn't altogether sure it wasn't just a publicity stunt.
"Remember, you're talking to an expert. I died back in the late Sixties. But did I put on a freak show like this? No. Besides, John wouldn't let me have that much attention and Ringo said it was in bad taste', the proper fart."
"George was on another planet if I remember correctly. That old guy in India really got to him. Maybe that's where he is now, playing the sitar."
Asked if he was tired of all the attention given Michael Jackson, Sir Paul stated that from an entertainer's point of view you couldn't get too much attention.
"Or perhaps I should say, from the view of those who inherit if he's really dead. I'm not quite convinced. All this has made me miss John. It was his idea to kill me off and we joked a lot about it until the press began taking it seriously. I would have stretched it out for awhile but suddenly, my friend get tired of it."
"I'll be next of the four to pop off. Ringo will put out ten books and tell-all's and he won't allow himself to die until there's no one to deny he was the greatest Beatle. Just kidding Ringo."
