Yeah, it's an interesting idea but I'm not convinced that the 'you' in the first line is McCartney.

To me Lennon is speaking to the listener saying Sgt. Pepper surprised a lot of people who thought the Beatles were going to implode when they stopped touring.

The 'you' in the second line is also the listener saying, 'look this guy may be talented but you don't know him like I do'...
