Beatle wrote song on the loo

Cologne - Former Beatle Paul McCartney put the finishing touches to the hit tune Yesterday while sitting on the toilet, according to a former collaborator.Fans have long known that McCartney woke up one morning in 1964 in his girlfriend's London flat humming the tune.

It just goes to show you that inspiration strikes at any time and knows no bounds.

Paul's own brother said that when he and Paul were teenagers, Paul would even practice guitar in and on the loo.

I don't know if I quite believe this. Paul seems pretty down to earth (he sometimes reminds me of my mom in the fact that he says things that I think are a bit embarrassing), and if this were the case, it would've come out while someone was interviewing him at some point during the past 47 years.

How long before an "artifact" from that historic moment finds it's way to Sotheby's Auction House? Complete w C.O.A.

Lionel Ritchie once said in an interivew that his 1984 song "Hello" just came to him while he was taking a shower. He was humming the song, not recognizing it until he realized he had to write it! It was a song waiting for him to write.

Inspiation can strike anywhere.

I can understand about the shower. I have gotten the best inspriations from my writings right as I removed my robes to step into my shower. Sometimes I wanted to hurry up to go and write it all down! Sometimes I stopped to write some notes!

Well who knows.....I mean the story that he used to play guitar on the toilet is an old old one so maybe this is true for many songs and it is only now that he has said Yesterday was one.

He likes to throw these little shockers up at us every now and then. What was it a year or so back when he gave some very intimate detail about how he got dressed or something?!
