Paul McCartney Rocks ‘Colbert Report’

Paul McCartney dropped by ‘The Colbert Report‘ last night for a special hour-long episode that included an extended interview with the former Beatle and performances of six classic songs.

Host Stephen Colbert — who said he was “sporting some serious Norwegian wood” in anticipation of McCartney’s appearance — jokingly referred to the show as “Stephen Colbert’s Tribute to Having Paul McCartney on His Show, Featuring Paul McCartney, With Special Guest Stephen Colbert.”

During the interview, a sizable chunk of which you can watch above, McCartney talked about the end of the Beatles, the beginning of Wings and the new reissue of the 1976 live album ‘Wings Over America.’

He also played five songs on the program: ‘I’ve Just Seen a Face,’ ‘Hi, Hi, Hi,’ ‘Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite,’ ‘Listen to What the Man Said’ and ‘Lady Madonna.’

There’s also an exclusive online performance of the Beatles’ ‘Birthday,’ which McCartney dedicated to “anyone who has a birthday during the entire year,” which you can watch here.
