Ask a Beatle: Paul McCartney to hold live Webchat

May 20, 2010 |  7:30 am

A little black-birdie told us that Paul McCartney will hold a live Webchat with fans at 9 a.m. PDT.

McCartney is taking a break from rehearsals for his upcoming concerts to answer fan questions online for 20 minutes. He will play a pair of shows in Mexico City on May 27 and 28 before jetting to Europe in June. The Beatle is back in the U.S. for a concert in San Francisco on July 10, his first time on stage in the city since the Beatles played Candlestick Park in August 1966.

Pop & Hiss' Randy Lewis reviewed McCartney's performance at the Hollywood Bowl in March, when he rocked to a flurry of classics for nearly three hours. Since then, there's been plenty to talk about with McCartney -- most notably, his statements blaming EMI Music for the absence of the Beatles' digital tracks on iTunes.

When McCartney signs on, you can click on the video below (if you don't see it, click: "Continue reading"), or hop over to Ustream's website to ask questions. If you're on-the-go, Ustream has mobile applications for the iPhone, iPad and Android. The video will also be archived on the site later.
