No, not at all, man. McCartney knew who we were, you know, and the guy knew everything about us. When we first met those guys, they knew who we were, all of ‘em, man. The Stones, Rod Stewart. Back in those days, Rod Stewart’s band was called the Faces. We did a show in London with Professor Longhair, Allen Toussaint and Dr. John, and after the show we were told that a lot of those guys didn’t get along well together, so they brought all of ‘em in at different points so we would just meet and greet and say hello. So we got to see the Faces, we got to see the Stones, we got to see the Beatles. They all didn’t come together, you know, as one group. McCartney kind of traveled alone most of the time as I remember. The only person in the Beatles we didn’t meet or didn’t show, was the drummer, Ringo Starr. But we never talked about what we do. We talked like we had been old friends.
When McCartney did the recording session here in New Orleans, our management at the time was tryin’ to keep us away from the studio. Paul had asked Steve Eggerton about me, so Steve came to my house one evening and got me. He said “Hey man, I’m gonna bring you somewhere.” As a general rule, when we were home, if we weren’t playing or working, we didn’t even go to the studio, so there would have been no chance of seeing McCartney. But Eggerton came up and got me and brought me down and says, “Man, somebody wants to see you.” When I get to the studio, when we walk in the door, it was Linda [McCartney], and she was sitting there with the Xerox machine, playing, taking handprints, you know, on the Xerox machine and bringing ‘em back to Paul and saying “Whose hand is that?” [laughs]. So she had me make a Xerox copy of my hand and she ran into the back of the studio and says, “Whose hand is that?” and Paul takes a guess and she says, “No, no, no” and he turned around and she said it’s George Porter, Jr., and he turned around and knew then. Big hugs and excitement and the session kind of came to a screaming halt for about a half hour, with Paul and me just talkin’. We hugged a couple of times, and just talked about how we doin’, how’s the family, how the children doin’, this and that. It was pretty cool. We never talked business at all, we always talked like we had been long-time family members, you know? Checking on each other’s families

We should make a String Cheese Thread, similar to the Bisco and Phish threads
