Having spent more than 60 years in the music industry, it’s hardly surprising that Sir’s hearing has been tested.
And now it seems the music legend is using a hearing aid to help him get by.
During an interview with The New Yorker, the 79-year-old musician had a little trouble with the device.
The interviewer revealed ‘a hearing aid sprang out of his right ear’ as he discussed his desire to keep making new music.
But, far from being concerned, Sir Paul ‘rolled his eyes’ before using his finger to ‘push the wormy apparatus back in place’.
It came as he revealed that contrary to reports at the time, he was not responsible for the Beatles’ split in 1970 by ‘quitting’ – it was actually John Lennon.
Paul McCartney insists he had nothing to do with Beatles' split
Paul McCartney, 79, has set the record straight on the Beatles split in 1970, insisting: 'I didn't instigate the split.'Speaking in an upcoming episode of BBC Radio 4's new interview series This Cultural Life, McCartney, 79, said: 'John walked into a room one day and said 'I am leaving the Beatles''.
Sir Paul, who at the weekend posted a picture with his wife Nancy Shevell to celebrate their tenth wedding anniversary, said Lennon randomly ‘walked into a room one day’ and announced he was quitting, leaving him and his bandmates George Harrison and Ringo Starr to ‘pick up the pieces’.
‘I didn’t instigate the split,’ he told the new BBC Radio 4 series This Cultural Life.
‘That was our Johnny.’

News stories around the world reported that it was Sir Paul who had quit the band, after a supposed press release for his 1970 solo album said he was taking a ‘rest’.
In a ‘self-interview’ at the time, Sir Paul said ‘no’ when asked, ‘do you foresee a time when Lennon-McCartney becomes an active songwriting partnership again?’.
Paul McCartney insists John Lennon split up The Beatles
Paul McCartney insists John Lennon split up The BeatlesThe legendary songwriter is set to appear on BBC Radio 4's This Cultural Life on 23 October. In a preview released by The Guardian, the 79-year-old cleared up speculation about which band member broke up The Beatles in 1970.
Asked if the Beatles, which formed in Liverpool in 1960, could have continued if Lennon had stayed, Sir Paul told interviewer John Wilson that he believed ‘it could have’.
‘The point of it really was that John was making a new life with Yoko and he wanted... to lie in bed for a week in Amsterdam for peace,’ he said.
‘You couldn’t argue with that. It was the most difficult period of my life.’
He added: ‘This was my band, this was my job, this was my life.
‘I wanted it to continue. I thought we were doing some pretty good stuff - Abbey Road, Let It Be, not bad - and I thought we could continue.’
Sir Paul explained that initially they had to ‘pretend’ they were still together, because with the album Abbey Road set for release, American Allan Klein thought it best for key business deals to remain quiet.
‘So for a few months we had to pretend,’ Sir Paul, who didn’t get along with Klein, said.
‘It was weird because we all knew it was the end of the Beatles but we couldn’t just walk away.’
The full interview will be broadcast on Saturday, October 23.
