Babyshambles man interviews the chirpy former Beatle

Courtney Love and Alan Partridge, Pixie Geldof and Noel Fielding, Donny Tourette and Princess Beatrice – there certainly are some odd pairings in the world, if the red-tops are to be believed anyway.

Today’s (September 28) unlikely hook-up involves a certain Peter Doherty and former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney.

However, they haven’t been buying each other flowers and spooning, Pete supposedly interviewed the Scouse star and got some fatherly advice from him.

“They spoke about everything from music, other singers and even touched on the subject of women”, “a friend” told the tab.

Pete didn’t sleep the night before the meeting just thinking what he’d say to the legend.”

Lordy – he’s usually tucked up in bed by 10!
