Sir Paul has told NME that working with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich was one of the most challenging experiences of his musical career to date. In spite of some disagreements, Sir Paul said his sessions with Mr. Godrich reminded him of his Beatles collaborations:
"It was more like working with a band than a producer. It's pretty hard to live up to John and George. Working in a band like The Beatles we had four votes, so if Ringo didn't like something John and I brought in he got to vote it out. Which I suppose is very democratic. And in the same way Nigel had that same vote.
"Once we got in the studio, and we're playing head to head on a couple of songs that I thought as good and he didn't, I thought of immediately firing him. I just thought, 'I don't have to take this'. But the point is, 'This is why you're working with him'."
