Paul McCartney admitted after 50 years in the business, he still suffers from nerves to a certain degree: "It's normally the first thing in the morning when you wake up. You think, 'What is it today? What -- ah, it's a show. It's a big show tonight' And really that's the time that I get a little bit nervous. I maybe wake up a little earlier than I would've. 'Cause with the Beatles I used to get quite nervous, especially if they were big shows."
