The Beatles: My Broken Tooth — by Paul McCartney

Alan Smith, New Musical Express, 24 June 1966

I HAVE interviewed Paul McCartney travelling in a car at speed. Battling up a crowded flight of stairs. In a smoky billiards room. On the telephone. At a recording session. Climbing up a ladder. Walking along Tottenham Court Road. In a taxi. Trapped in a room with fans breaking the door down. Even on a roof.

Total word count of piece: 1926
