Paul McCartney Drops 2020 Retirement Bombshell


The Walrus himself, Sir Paul McCartney, was recently interviewed by BBC Radio 4’s Sarah Montague. When Montague took McCartney to task over Coldplay’s recent decision to mercifully stop touring due to their awareness of the band’s own “carbon footprint”, McCartney reassured Sarah that he has no plans to do the same. Paul McCarney ‘refuses’ listening to John Lennon songs.

“I am aware of [his carbon footprint], and you do your best. But, it is very difficult if you’re going to tour. I AM going to go on tour in America. You can’t say… ‘we’ll go by Greyhound Bus,’ because that’s just as bad! We certainly can’t just bike our way around. It’s a reality, you just have to do it, and plant a lot of trees… that’s kind of how I offset it, is by doing things that will make up for it. If I tour, that’s going to involve travel, which is going to involve a carbon footprint.”

McCartney has taken part in plenty of social and environmental activism in the past. He is a staunch vegetarian, as has taken part in the anti-landmine foundation Adopt-A-Minefield and Artists Against Fracking. Paul McCartney Brutally Rips John Lennon Family.

In other Paul McCartney news, fans recently took to social media to discuss the long-lasting legacy of one of McCartney’s most beloved live albums – Amobea Gig.

One fan proclaimed: “Never having heard the album, or even knew of the existence of the recording, I ordered on a whim thinking the tracklisting looked pretty good. I am blown away by the performance – sounds like Paul and his band was having a ball. Small venue, an appreciative crowd of under a thousand according to liner notes, and Paul’s personality coming through front and center. This is one fun listen – highly recommended to anyone with even a passing acquaintance with Paul and the Beatles. And the recording of this gig is top-notch to my ear. I like live recordings as there is most often an energy that is often muted in-studio sessions. No shortage of energy here.” Paul McCartney horrible beard photo revealed by wife.

    Yeah, so Mazzarone … what is it that you actually do for a living? You should spend more time doing that than your attempted writing hobby. You’re just not any good at it.
    Great in depth report on McCartney’s plans for 2020 retirement. Oh wait…. that was just the bait title. Yeh, didn’t say shit about it, though, did you. No, you just wrote a lot of shit.
    Seriously, time to get a real job. I’m sure your mom would like to have her basement back. Check out the local grocery store…you’d be good at racking pop bottles after you get the hang of it.

    Who allowed this article to be published? The article itself has nothing to do with the title. Did you fail English in middle school? How do you have a job?

    So NO RETIREMENT PLANS means “Retirement Bombshell” to Mike Mazzarone! Nice one, more trash from the gutter. Seriously THE WORST journalist (and I insult that term using it in reference to MM) I’ve ever encountered. EVERY headline is bullsh*t from him and has nothing to do with the actual story….it’s so sad.

    Here’s a headline for Alternative Nation:

    “Mazzarone Sucks’s Mother’s Dick, Discovers She’s a Man”

  • John Horvath

    Nowhere in this article is the word “retirement.” NOWHERE. Here’s something else not found: CREDIBILITY. This site gives fake new a bad name. This site needs to be fumigated. This author needs to find a job somewhere else, where we’ll never hear from him again. His “editor” needs to go with him. The site administrators need to consider euthanizing themselves, for the greater good.

    John Lennon was The Walrus.

    What bollocks

  • Your website should be called ‘alternative reality’ or ‘alternative truth’ since the headlines are so misleading.

    “Carbon footprint. ” What a childish , faux issue.
