Paul McCartney and Rick Rubin chat "3,2,1" in Rolling Stone

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.
