PAUL MCCARTNEY declared himself a fan of President Barack Obama and admitted performing at the White House was “very exciting”.
The former Beatle performed in the Presidential residence last month when he collected the Gershwin Prize in front of an audience including Stevie Wonder and Elvis Costello.
McCartney said: “I’m a fan of the president. I believe that he’s been dealt a bad hand. He came into that job with a lot of difficulties on his plate that weren’t of his creation.
“So I was eager to meet him, being a fan of his and his wife. I had never actually been to the White House, so that was great. And the idea of playing in the White House was very interesting.”
