Sir Paul McCartney was advised to retire at 50

London, June 30: Former Beatles star Sir Paul McCartney has revealed that his ex-manager had advised him to retire at the age of 50.

McCartney, 69, who is still recording and touring, said he refused to listen to the advice and decided to continue because he was still “enjoying” his career.

He told Mojo magazine that he ended up parting company with the manager who suggested he stopped making music.

“One of my old guys who I used to have as my manager, I was knocking 50 and he said ‘I think it’s time you retired’. I thought, I know what you mean, but I don’t really feel like it, you know,” the Independent quoted the singer as saying.

“And if I’m really enjoying this, why retire? So I decided against it, and got rid of him.

“I wonder what he thinks today. Perhaps that he was right, but hopefully not,” he said. (ANI)
