After a two hour chat in Sir Paul's London office this week, Australian DJ, Jonathan 'Jono' Coleman, reports that Paul McCartney is a man who is completely at ease and very much in love - with his daughters and Heather Mills - to whom he is NOT engaged: "There is no timetable and no hurry", Sir Paul says. (The interview was briefly interrupted by a call from Heather Mills who was phoning him for some advice on the music for her documentaryon land mines.)
Sir Paul bragged that he is incredibly proud of his daughter Stella and of her success as a fashion designer - even though none of her stuff fits him. He noted that he sees a lot of Linda in Stella, especially in her campaign against the fur trade. Stella even warned Madonna that she had better not wear fur or else, something Sir Paul claimed he'd be too frightened to do.
He has also been in contact with George Harrison who is in Italy recovering from his recent surgery. Sir Paul reports that George is in good spirits, sounds very positive, and is making a full recovery. Sir Paul stays in touch with both George and Ringo during the year and always sends Christmas cards to their families.
He also spoke of the making of the Wingspan album. Although he missed having Linda there adding her thoughts and ideas, her influence was still strong, thinking: "Yeah, Linda would like that song on there."
Sir Paul found that the making of the Wingspan album and documentary was a very therapeutic and uplifting process that brought back lots of happy memories. He especially enjoyed working with Mary:
"It was great fun, 'cause I never usually get to spend two hours talking to one of my daughters, let alone having her boss me around and me joking with her on camera."
Jono Coleman reports that Sir Paul looks healthy, happy, supremely confident, full of humor and glowing with love.
