Paul McCartney 'annoyed' at phone call from 'groupie' that was actually Michael Jackson
Sir Paul McCartney has told how he thought a "girl fan" had got hold of his phone number but was surprised to learn it was superstar Michael Jackson.The singer, 79, said he didn't recognise the softly spoken voice on the other end of the phone and became annoyed, thinking that it was a "groupie" who had managed to get his number.In an interview with Daily Star, the British hitmaker spoke of his shock at learning who he was speaking to.Paul recalled: "Somebody rang me up, and this high voice I didn’t recognise said, ‘Hi, Paul.'"I thought, ‘This is a girl fan, and how the hell did she get my number?’ I was quite annoyed," he admitted.The former Beatles member revealed who was actually on the other end of the phone.He explained: "Then the voice said, ‘It’s Michael,’ and suddenly it dawned on me."It wasn’t a girl, it was Michael Jackson, and he basically said, ‘Do you want to make some hits?’"Following the phone call, the duo went on to work together to write the 1983 hit, Say Say Say.The song became Jackon's best performing Hot 100 chart single and led the list for six weeks in December 1983.Elsewhere, former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan opened up about a time that The Beatles star had called him up to scold him.Speaking on The Brett Lee podcast last month, spoke about having a scary phone call with Paul after meeting him for a few drinks earlier in his career.Piers said: “I was walking to the pub in Canary Wharf. We had a story on page 7 (in The Sun) about Paul McCartney.“He had a new girlfriend at the time called Heather Mills.
