Paul McCartney awful onstage health scare claim leaks.

Alternative Nation transcribed his comments below.
Interviewer: Have you ever been in a situation where you’ve approached someone that you’ve been in awe of?
Paul McCartney: Yeah, there’s one or two people who I would be quite nervous about. Bob Dylan would make me go: “Oh my God, what am I gonna say?” I did see him, we did Coachella which was Oldchella because it was like, [The Rolling] Stones, us, Neil Young and Bob Dylan. It was older acts but it was great. I got to talk to Bob there and he was really nice. I don’t know why I would of been nervous but you get that with some people. It is a funny thing actually when you think about it – “what do you have to do to get secure in yourself.” I would have thought that I would have done enough now to just go: “I’m cool, I don’t need to be nervous about anyone. It’s a human condition, I think.”
