Paul McCartney has truly done it all and has kept up his health while doing it as well. Many people in their 20s and 30s can’t keep up on stage with the legendary artist, but there is also another thing that the younger crowd may not be able to keep up with either, and that’s his yoga practices.
In a recent photo that was posted to all of the Paul McCartney social media outlets; we get to see Paul McCartney doing a headstand in what looks like his living room. Not only is McCartney able to pull this off with ease, but he is also able to pull off some great gym fashion with ease as well as we see the singer wearing some nice Nike running shoes which match with his Nike socks and black and white gym wear.
While Paul has always been a bright light to many; this wasn’t always the case as he was in a very bad spot some years ago when Michael Jackson bought the catalogue to The Beatles.
Paul would state: “He won’t even answer my letters, so we haven’t talked and we don’t have that great a relationship. The trouble is I wrote those songs for nothing and buying them back at these phenomenal sums, I just can’t do it.”
Jackson’s response to McCartney’s request was: “Oh Paul, that’s just business.”
When McCartney first gave Jackson the advice, the King of Pop got in contact with attorney John Branca, who helped Jackson buy the rights to 1960s songs he liked. Then in 1984, Branca told him ATV was up for sale and the company owned 4,000 songs, including those 251 by the Beatles.
At the time McCartney said it was out of his price range and Yoko Ono, who is Lennon’s surviving wife, said she was fine with Jackson owning them, rather than a huge corporation. So, Branca bid $30 million but other bids brought it up to $47.5 million.
Jackson stated: “You can’t put a price on a Picasso… you can’t put a price on these songs, there’s no value on them. They’re the best songs that have ever been written.”
Paul then said: “I think it’s dodgy to do something like that. To be someone’s friend, and then buy the rug they’re standing on.”
Allegations were that Jackson left the rights back to Paul in his will, but this was not true at all.
"The headstand is my show-off moment when I'm in the gym… I was once told by a yoga teacher that it keeps you young" – Paul
