Sir Paul McCartney gave roughly three dozen Princeton University students the shock of their lives when he crashed their songwriting class.


Professor Paul Muldoon announced about 30 minutes into the three-hour lecture that a “test student” would be joining them virtually to listen to everyone’s songs.  At first, the camera was off and all they heard was a distant British voice. Then, Professor Muldoon introduces Sir Paul and they were all in shock for the next two hours!

Some students said, “He gave criticism, but he very much treated them [our songs] as works in progress — citing lines that he found powerful and moving verses to the top.”

Professor Muldoon, “He was clearly absolutely determined to be helpful. It turns out that Paul McCartney is a natural educator…One of the things few people might realize about him is that he is quite likely to have been a teacher had he not become a rock star.”

Muldoon is currently working with McCartney on a yet-to-be-announced project, “details of which are under wraps just now but will be announced in a few days.”

Sir Paul released his latest studio album, McCartney III, in December and drops a book of his song lyrics this November.
