**Important to Note: The following in-depth interview done exclusively by CBS for 60 minutes II was used in part as behind-the-scenes footage for Paul McCartney’s documentary “The Love We Make”. See here the actual exclusive interview as it aired on CBS.

10. 60 Minutes II 10/24/01: When Paul McCartney was in his early 20s, he wrote “Yesterday,” It seemed particularly meaningful when he sang it again this past weekend. McCartney, the son of a Liverpool fireman, performed the song for firefighters, police and rescue workers and their families. Dan Rather reports. “I wanted to do something,” he says. “Like a lot of people, I felt helpless. I’m not a firefighter but my dad was in World War II. He was a volunteer firefighter in Liverpool, which got a lot of heavy bombing.”

Six thousand rescue workers and their families were given free tickets to attend the event, “The Concert for New York,” at Madison Square Garden. Broadcast nationally on VH1, the event raised millions for charities set up in the aftermath of the World Trade Center attack. For his part, McCartney wrote a new song specifically for this concert, called “Freedom.”

Rather took McCartney back to the old studio, and showed him a tape of the original performance. “Good group. Wow,” McCartney said jokingly afterwards. “You had to take me back there, didn’t you?” It doesn’t feel like 37 years ago, McCartney said. “It’s one of those staggering things about life, you can just literally seem a few years ago. And it isn’t – it’s a long time ago. But I have memories. Very excited for us as Liverpool kids to come to America and thn to suddenly be involved in something like that. A really big show. And then the reaction to it, I love. I still meet people who say, ‘I know where I was, I was in our sitting room and’ And their dads invariably say, ‘Those are wigs. They’re wearing wigs.’ You look at it now. It looks pretty short, it looks pretty tame.”

McCartney’s connection with New York has always been powerful. A year after their first Ed Sullivan appearance, the Beatles played Shea Stadium in Queens. McCartney recalls laughingly that the sound system wasn’t very good. “If we thought we were playing well, it was a little bit annoying, because the people who came to hear couldn’t hear us. If we were not in a very good mood, and not playing very well, it was a blessing.”

Thirty-six years later, he was the first to sign on for last weekend’s benefit concert. He says his love for New York played a part. But so did his own experiences with untimely loss, beginning with the death of his mother. In 1968, the Beatles’ first manager, Brian Epstein, died at the age of 33. In 1980, John Lennon was murdered. And just three years ago, McCartney lost his wife, Linda.
