“The Truth Is I Don’t Really Want to Set an Example to My Kids and Grandkids. It’s Now a Parent Thing. Back Then I Was Just Some Guy Around London Having a Ball, and the Kids Were Little so I’d Just Try and Keep It out of Their Faces”, Says McCartney

“I don’t do it any more.  The truth is I don’t really want to set an example to my kids and grandkids. It’s now a parent thing. Back then I was just some guy around London having a ball, and the kids were little so I’d just try and keep it out of their faces.  Instead of smoking a spliff I’ll now have a glass of red wine or a nice margarita. The last time I smoked was a long time ago”. Those were Sir Paul McCartney exact words to The Mirror in a wonderful interview in which McCartney shared how he keeps fit and enjoys a healthy life at 70.

Millions of fans of McCartney and The Beatles know about the super musician’s history with marijuana. But apparently, towards the age of 70, McCartney stopped smoking to set an example for his kids and grandchildren.  Don’t you just love this guy?

McCartney also told how he managed to stay in shape, playing endless gigs around the world:  “I feel pretty fit. I do a bit of the cross-trainer, a bit of running, a bit of cardio and then I do some weights, some abs on the Swiss ball, before ending up on the mat doing a few stretches. And then standing on my head”. Classic.
