Paul McCartney and Rick Rubin discuss the popularity of their "McCartney 3,2,1" streaming series on Hulu, along with other matters, in a lengthy Rolling Stone interview this week.
Rubin: As fans, we want to know as much as possible. That’s the reality. If you love something, you want to know as much as you can. Especially for something where it’s a limited supply. There are these 13 albums and that’s what it is. Anything you can get more than that is just a gift from God. I always collected every Beatles bootleg and outtake my whole life, every scrap, because it’s like the Apocrypha.
McCartney: That’s what’s nice about this upcoming Get Back film by Peter Jackson. He’s very carefully left in a lot of that. And so you see the thing in its entirety. You see the little quiet moments. It did mean that he ended up with an 80-hour edit, because he’s just very respectfully kept all these little moments. But I’m sure there’ll be some fans who will want the 80-hour.

Rubin: Two of them right here.
