Paul McCartney's Busking
This is where Paul McCartney went busking for a film in 1984.
Location: Leicester Square Tube station, London
Description: Paul McCartney of the Beatles fame donned a disguise and went busking here in 1984. He reportedly did very well.
In a BBC Radio One interview on he said: It was for a film thing (Give My Regards To Broad Street) and it was something I'd always wanted to do, so I scruffed myself up a bit, put on a false beard and shades, and went down to Leicester Square tube station. It was really cool. A couple of people came up and said, 'Is it you?' but I just said, 'Oh, no'. But I got a few shillings and I thought, 'This doesn't feel right,' so I gave it to charity.
