London: Former Beatles Paul McCartney has turned down 5 million pounds to write an autobiography, asserting that he is too busy touring and making music.

The 71-year-old singer said that he`s of the opinion that so many people have already told his story so many times, that he doesn`t need to do the work and it`s not something you toss up overnight, the Daily Express reported.

McCartney, who has just ended a North American tour, said that he has a lot on his plate right now and doesn`t have time to write that.

The star added that even if he was very driven to pen down the book, it would take more time than he currently has.
