  • Description

    S/V Paul McCartney in recording studio

    REPORTER: Tell me what was life like ...

    ... to be confined and possibly lose your freedom for 7 years?

    McCARTNEY: Yes, it was frightening you know at first, mainly because I had Linda and the kids with me ....

    ... I was frightened for three or four days, and then my sense of humour started to come back a little bit.

    REPORTER: Was being inside a Japanese jail anything like you'd imagined it would be?

    McCARTNEY: I'd never actually thought 'I wonder what its like being in a Japanese jail' ... I think you fear a lot more than is actually there ... conditions were okay ...

    REPORTER: Has the experience changed your life,e particularly your attitude to drugs?

    McCARTNEY: ... my attitude was officially too casual ... I would like someone to do a really unbiased report and really lay out which is worse for you - sleeping tablets, and valium and hard booze etc, or stuff like marijuana ..

    ... I don't think just locking me a way for a few days really did anything to change the attitude. No one tries to rehabilitate me ...

    ... my attitude is pretty much the same.
