Hi and thank you for doing this!

I was wondering if Paul McCartney used any of his "technical" skills during the sessions.

Was he hands on (I know he was in the past decades)?
Is he interested in gear at all?
Does he have preferences for certain gear (specific mics, eqs, compressors, etc.)?

Take care.

He was really hands off, I picked all the mics and during the mixing he and Tommy LiPuma let me do my thing. This album was one of the most enjoyable of my entire career, He is one of the nicest people I have ever worked wih and I cant wait to do another one with him. The DVD and T V show on the album will be out in the fall.
