"I f--ked up. I was supposed to wait for a cue. But I forgot. Why? Well, there's this bloody great bell that we didn't know about. It was deafening.
We prerecorded a playback in case all hell broke loose... We were live, everyone was there, the world was ready and this bloody great bell goes off.
And I forget I've gotta wait for it, so I go, 'Hey Jude', and someone presses the playback. So there's me on the backing track, and actual me; two of us singing"
THE DELAY/ECHO in the beginning of "Hey Jude" was because they (IOC) wanted Paul to lip sync/play over a backing track, but McCartney decided against it and played it completely live.I dubbed someone else's high quality television recording of the performance with a high quality recording of "Hey Jude" from the opening ceremony of the London 2,012 Summer Olympics together, with this as the result. I do not own or have any rights to these recordings for they belong to the International Olympic Committee & "The End" and "Hey Jude" belong to Paul McCartney & John Lennon, Apple Corps, and EMI.
