-I love running into you. I run into you around the city
all the time. -Yeah.
-And it’s always fun
when I see you. Usually, it’s at, like,
a Paul McCartney concert. -Yeah.
-Right? We do. -Poor us.
-[ Laughs] I know. Isn’t that amazing?
-I know. Yeah. I remember, one time they
brought us backstage before — like, the band was still on,
and they were singing — They were still singing
“The End” from… -“Abbey Road.” -And we didn’t want to go
backstage yet. So, we sang, and I think our
mascara was running, and… -Yeah, we — That’s right.
We bonded. It was great. -Yeah.
-Yeah, I loved it. Now, you’re actually — you’re
friends with Paul McCartney. -Well, I’m — I —
I — yeah. -Yeah.
-Yeah. I know him.
-Yeah, that’s pretty cool. Do you remember the first time
you met Paul McCartney? -Sure. I mean, my good buddy,
the actor Aidan Quinn, played Paul
in a movie once. -Oh, I remember that.
-In a VH1 movie. -Yeah,
I remember that. If Paul and John met back up,
what would they do? -Yeah, yeah.
Actually, it was when “SNL” — remember, when they said —
-They were gonna do it. -When Paul came on, and said,
“if the Beatles — can you come,” and, well,
John and Paul were together that night, and they
were thinking about going. Aidan did a movie about that,
called “The Two of Us.” Then, he went on vacation,
he and his wife, Lizzie. And they actually
met Paul McCartney while they were on vacation,
just, like, randomly. -Wow.
-Just — yeah. -He’s like,
“I just played you.” -I know, yeah.
Isn’t that weird? And then, so,
they became friends. Cut to a couple
months later. Aidan is having a little
birthday dinner party, and we were invited —
my wife and I. And I thought,
“Oh, my God. I’m gonna meet
Paul McCartney tonight,” ’cause he said that–
he said that Paul was coming. And it was just gonna be,
like, a small gathering. I’m getting nervous. I’m stuttering now,
just even… -That’s so funny though, because
you’re a big Beatles fan. -Yeah, huge. And I convinced myself,
like, that day, that I had some sort
of stomach ailment, and that I really can’t go,
’cause I’m too sick. But it was just nerves.
-Wow. -So anxious.
-Yeah. -And on the way there,
my wife and I were looking for
a birthday present for Aidan, but I just couldn’t
even concentrate. I’m like,
“Just get him anything. I can’t even think
about that.” -Yeah. -And then, we’re walking
down 57th street, and this young lady
stops me. And I think — I’m pretty sure
she had pink hair, and she was wearing,
like, a pink dress, but I could be
making this up. But I remember she did say
her name was “P!nk.” She said, “I’m P!nk, and I have
an album coming out soon.” This is, like,
20 years ago. And she said,
“And I got my name sort of because of your
character in ‘Reservoir Dogs.'” -Mr. Pink.
-Yeah. And it was
very flattering. This was P!nk.
It was — You know, but I didn’t know
who she was. -This was really P!nk.
-This was really P!nk, yeah. -But you —
-But I had no idea who she was. -Yeah. -And I was so
anxious and nervous about meeting
Paul McCartney that I don’t even know
if I said anything to her. I think I just, like,
looked at her, and was just like,
“Uh-huh.” You know? And later, of course,
you know, I find out who P!nk is,
and I love her. And I just always felt bad
because I hope she didn’t think I was being rude,
or that I was not interested. I was just —
-You had your own — you had your own things.
-I had stomach problems. -You had your own things.
Yeah. If she’s watching —
She watches all the time, if you want to say —
-Does she? -Yeah. you can look in
this camera, right there, and just say, “Hey…”
-P!nk. P!nk, I love you.
-Yeah. -Happy Valentine’s Day. -I love you.
Happy Valentine’s Day. -See, now it’s all good. Now it’s all good. Do you know,
the last time you were on — -Can I “Happy Valentine’s Day”
to my mom? Happy Valentine’s Day, mom.
-Aww, I love it. -Happy Valentine’s Day. -Now, I want to say
“Happy Valentine’s Day” to your mom. Happy Valentine’s Day
to Steve’s mom. I love you.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
