Today in Rome, Sir Paul shared his post-tour plans with Reuters Television:"I'll have a big holiday after this. But I like what I do... It's not really work for me, it's a job and hobby. It's a hobby! I like it so much that if I retired I'd still want to do music. "I've always said since I was about 20 that I would be getting wheeled on when I was 90 and do a very slow version of Yesterday.He also spoke of performing inside the Colosseum where gladiators fought to the death over 2,000 years ago:
"I've enjoyed playing with (this band) so much and... I'm always writing songs. The next logical move for a normal band is to get in the studio to make some new music. So we'll probably do that towards the end of the year.""You just kept getting flashes of Nero with his thumbs up or thumbs down, and lions. Just looking around and that sense of history fills the whole evening. We were playing our music in some way trying to exorcise the ghosts of some of the evil that happened."And even after all these years, he still enjoys a healthy rivalry with Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones:"If you're lucky you might break house records. So it's nice when you arrive somewhere and they say 'the Rolling Stones used to have the house record and now you've got it.' And we say 'Oh, sorry Mick'."'
