Here's Paul McCartney's reaction to George Harrison's death. This was filmed at his estate in Sussex. The reporters were gathered outside the long driveway entrance to his estate. Seems kind of rehearsed, but I guess it's expected when dealing with the media, especially since the lashing McCartney received from his seemingly passive reaction to the death of Beatles band mate John Lennon.

everytime's the first time
I really respect him for being calm and mature in this situation. I would probably flip off

I can't believe there's people in the comments saying that Paul's not showing enough emotion here. This is a man who's lost his Mother at a young age, had his best mate get shot to death and had his loving wife of 30 years and one of his oldest friends die of cancer just a few years apart. Never mind the absurdness to even bring up the Paul/Faul conspiracy on a video like this. Fucking hell, let the poor man get on with his life!

You just lost your best friend of 50 odd years who just happens to be one of the most famous people in the world. you come home and see some 20 paparazzi in your drive way. But you knew this was going to happen and so your prepared yourself accordingly. You would sound a little rehearsed also! . Paul could have just driven by, but I'm sure he just wanted to get it over with once and for all and not attract any more attention to himself or the situation or set any more controversy swirling over on the 24 hour news cycle. He owes those vultures nothing.

Do half the fools here really think Paul is dead and replaced by Billy Shears? At first it sounded like a joke, then I realized they were serious. Gullible idiots are everywhere....

He said "it's a drag" after Lennon was murdered. It WAS a drag. Liverpudlians are notorious for not being overly emotional in public, but Paul cried his eyes out that night in private.

Paul handled this like a pro. He was very gracious and generous at this moment. Of course it could have been therapedic for him to talk about it to people who were eager to listen to him, and there's nothing wrong with that.

This is Paul having learnt the lesson of his reaction to John's death, which for obvious reasons, caught him off guard. He prepared for this, and it shows. He's speaking as the perfect PR he's always been. Is it me, or the press were trying to get another "it's a drag" kind of comment?
