Milton Keynes radio hosts upsets the son of Sir Paul McCartney
City radio presenter Nick Coffer was forced to cut short an interview after annoying the son of Sir Paul McCartney on air.
BBC Three Counties host Nick asked 38-year-old James McCartney if he felt a pressure to follow in his famous father’s footsteps.
James, who’d hoped to spent the interview promoting his new album, replied; “I’m not asking you about YOUR father.”
He told Nick he “did not want to talk about his personal life”.
“I guess I wouldn’t like to talk about my family because it’s kind of private really, so you know what I mean?” he said.
The radio host told him: “I’ve shaped this interview to talk about you as a person, about what’s behind your music and talk about your story. If you want to answer those questions, that’s fine James...If you don’t we can end the interview.”
Seconds later the interview ended. Scheduled to last for up to 25 minutes, it lasted just three minutes.
James McCartney, who has battled a drug addiction and had a famous fall-out with Sir Paul, wanted promote his album The Blackberry Train, which will be released today.
