2001-Jun-11: Sir Paul at Rockefeller Center

Hundreds of fans waited in line overnight in Rockefeller Center for an opportunity to meet Sir Paul at his first ever American book signing. (See June 6 below)  Sir Paul said: "The event was just a little way of saying thank you to the American people."

According to People magazine, the fans had some interesting questions to pose to the poet: Will you attend my wedding? Do you still have the necklace I gave you at the 1976 Wings concert in Madison Square Garden? Do you know I love you? Sir Paul had a few questions of his own.  He asked a hip-hop clad boy, "You like my stuff?"  and an older man", "Was it hard to take off work?"

The signing lasted and hour and a half (the longest signing yet) during which nearly 200 books were autographed.  Before leaving, Sir Paul answered one final question - What artistic worlds are left for you to conquer?

"Many, many," replied Sir Paul. "Photography, sailing, nuclear science. I could do it!"

BTW, for those who have never experienced this pleasure, one lucky recipient of a Paul McCartney handshake at the book signing reported, "His hands are as soft as silk."
