I have a very interesting story about how I met Paul McCartney, share us with your stories!
September 24 2008, one day before the show in Tel Aviv, I got back from swimming lesson and we pass near the park that the concert will take place in, in a little bit more that 24 hours. I asked my father to stop for a moment and go to see the place before the big day, I don?t know what I was thinking but I was lucky that I asked that. We found where to park the car in a near gas station and started to walk, me, my father and my 4 years old sister. Everything was still preparing for the big day, we hoped no one will ask us to leave. We reached really close, near the ticket checking gate, a man was standing there, he was the producer of the show or something like that, I asked him in innocence ?Is Paul McCartney here??, ?He should arrive any minute? he replied, me and my father was look at each other in excitement, ?He will rehearse here tonight? the man said. A few minutes later, it was turning out that the place that we standing is where he will enter with the car, although it was quite late for a little kid as I was, but we decided to stay, of course. I found a piece of paper and a pen. We sat beside security personnel and waited for Paul to come. The guards laughed at me all time, ?why do you think that Paul McCartney will stop for a little kid that stand in his way??, they said it again and again. After a half an hour we saw a convoy of police cars entering and a black big car in the middle, I was so exciting!!! I jumped beside the road and waved with the paper, when the black car was passed near me, a familiar face was waving to me from the front seat of the car, you can guess who it was! The convoy continued and disappeared. A few minutes later the soundcheck begin, ?Hello Goodbye? was played, ?See? He doesn?t want to meet you? the guards said, my sister has already fallen asleep on a chair beside us. I insist to stay, I believed that when he will get out I?ll have another chance to meet him. Anyway, we decided to stay. I don?t remember the soundcheck too much, I just remember that I really had fun. Then came the big moment, the police convoy was making their way out, and the black car in between, the familiar face moved to sit on the back seat, I jumped and waved to Paul again, suddenly we hear a voice saying ?stop the car, stop the car?, the car was stopped and the window was opened, and I, without thinking too much, moved to the other side of the road, came to Paul and gave him the piece of paper, he signed on it, ?Rock ?N Roll, see you, shalom (hello in Hebrew)? Paul said to me, everyone was shocked, my little sister was waking up and start to cry, she didn?t noticed that we were moved to the other side of the road, Paul turned around to her and ask ?why are you crying? Why are you crying?", at the moment I wasn?t sure that my father took a picture, so I turned back to Paul, and as a non-English speaker 8 years old boy, I shouted ?Paul! Paul!? and made a movement of taking a picture, ?C?mon, quick picture", he said, my father took a picture, ?see you tomorrow? we said, ?see you?. The car started to move, we all was shocked. That was awesome!
