Paul in his own words:
"One thing you have to say is that I've put out an awful lot of records. Some of them I shouldn't have put out, sure. I'd gladly accept that.
"There's many different reasons for putting a record out. Sometimes I might just put one out because I'm bored and I've got nothing better to do.
"In 1977, I fancied doing a Scottish bagpipe song, so I wrote Mull Of Kintyre. The people who hated it were p****d off with me.
"Of course, it didn't help that it came out at the height of punk rock. But what should I have done at that time? Stuck a safety pin through my nose and done some bonkers punk song?
MY attitude is really: 'Sod you. You think Mull Of Kintyre is crap - you try writing something like that.' I do get annoyed at having to justify myself.
"Since school, I've never liked having to do that. I never liked anyone telling me what to do. I never liked that bullying tendency."
