James Dean Bradfield interviews Paul McCartney


“[Michael] rang me and said, ‘Do you want to make some hits?’”

Last week Paul debuted the video for a new remix of ‘Say Say Say’, his 1983 global hit written and recorded with Michael Jackson. The song was written quickly, with Paul face-to-face with Michael in his London office.

Paul recently spoke with Manic Street Preachers’ frontman James Dean Bradfield about the recently reissued Pipes of Peace album – one of Bradfield’s favourite releases of Paul’s, buying his copy as a 14 year old growing up in Wales. During the chat, James quizzed Paul about what it was like working with Jackson and today we are happy to publish an excerpt from the interview.
