Sir Paul granted British radio personality, Geoff Lloyd, a backstage interview shortly before his London Earls Court performance last evening. During the interview, Sir Paul discovered that it was Mr. Lloyd's 30th birthday, so he planned a surprise for him. During the concert, he changed the words to his tune Jet to "Geoff: in his honor. According to Mr. Lloyd:"I wanted to try and get Paul to do something special for my birthday and throughout the interview suggested various tributes. He didn't seem too keen when I asked if I could duet with him on Ebony and Ivory, but I did notice a twinkle in his eye when I suggested he change "Jet" to "Geoff".Mr. Lloyd's radio show partner, Pete Mitchell added:
"I was honored just to talk to Paul but to have him change a song to celebrate my birthday is unbelievable."The first "Jet" passed as normal but the second one was definitely "Geoff". I couldn't believe it."Sir Paul's spokesman said:"It's the sort of thing he does. Paul's Auntie Jean was in the audience so he changed a line from Let 'Em In from 'Auntie Gin' to 'Auntie Jean'."
