Sir Paul McCartney was with us on the day that we set off for lunch at a new restaurant that RG had recently opened in the south west of Scotland. It only served food at lunchtime, yet the reviews were excellent. There were particularly enthusiastic reports of the views down to the sea from its cliff-top location.
On the way to the restaurant I hinted that a member of our party (at the time out of earshot) had recorded The girl is mine with Sir Paul and Michael Jackson. Sir Paul took this news quite calmly. I did not hear the reaction of our companion when she found out that I had spilled the beans – because I was hiding at the time.
