SIR Paul McCartney has revealed he needs a teleprompter when performing to ensure he does not forget his famous lyrics.
The 78-year-old Beatle admits to thinking about what he is going to have for dinner instead of what he is singing.
He said: “Sometimes I’ll be doing a song, like Eleanor Rigby or something, and I’m on autopilot.
“And I’m starting to think, ‘Oh, what am I gonna have for dinner? Maybe you won’t have the soup but maybe you’ll just go for the main course’.
“Then I go ‘Stop!’, because I’m singing Eleanor Rigby! I’ve separated myself not only from Paul and fame, but a couple of bits in my head are going in different places.
“Sometimes that breaks down and I forget the song. I have a teleprompter.”
He said: “I know I’m very famous but I don’t want to walk around like I’m very famous.
“I don’t like to take pictures when people say, ‘Can I have a picture?’
"So I say, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t do pictures.’
