Grammy’s Greatest Stories: A 60th Anniversary Special follows the Recording Academy’s other recent critically acclaimed events — Stevie Wonder: Songs In The Key Of Life – An All-Star Grammy Salute; The Beatles: The Night That Changed America – A Grammy Salute; Sinatra 100 – An All-Star Grammy Concert; and Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute To The Music Of The Bee Gees.
Paul McCartney, who just wrapped his dates for 2017, explained that quitting the road at this stage of the game simply isn’t an option: “People, I think, kind of tend to kind of think — ‘This’ll be his last tour.’ And it’s like when you see guys like my age or the (Rolling) Stones, they think, ‘Well, they can’t last much longer.’ But we didn’t think we’d last ’till 25. If you look at the old Beatles interviews, we thought 25 was a very old person. So, uh, I think, y’know, I’ll continue to do it as long as long as people will come and see me — I might even do it when they won’t come and see me. I’ll probably. . . I love this stuff, y’know?”
