Veteran singer Paul Mccartney amazed he was a Beatle

London: Veteran singer Paul McCartney says he still finds it hard to believe that he was a member of iconic pop group The Beatles.

The 69-year-old singer and songwriter started his career with the legendary band alongside John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison in the early 60s, Contactmusic reported.

"I`m lucky that I`ve always retained a sense of wonder. I was looking at the George Harrison book accompanying Martin Scorsese`s `Living In The Material World` film recently and opened it at a picture George had taken of me and the other guys on an aeroplane.

"It took me right back; I was like, `Was I really there, in The Beatles?` It`s obviously a stupid thought but I`m glad I haven`t got used to it yet," he said.

The `My Valentine` hitmaker famously fell out with Lennon after The Beatles disbanded in 1970 but said they were getting closer to repairing their relationship when he was killed by a crazed fan in 1980.

"We were getting our relationship back together when John was killed but I don`t think The Beatles would have got back together; we`d made a considered decision that we`d come from A to Z."
