He became used to what became known as Beatlemania throughout the 1960s  - a fan frenzy characterised by high pitched screaming and hysteria.
And it seemed not too much had changed for Paul as he left the Daily Show studios in New York City on Monday night.
Paul was mobbed by fans offering him album covers to sign, with the Beatles album sleeve for 1969 LP Abbey Road a firm favourite.
Ever generous with his time, the star took a pen and signed a multitude of autographs in rainy Manhattan with an assistant holding am umbrella over the star. 
Sporting a padded black jacket, jeans  and black shoes, Sir Paul chatted away to the mob who clamoured for a signature behind crowd barriers in the cold. 
The star had made an appearance on The Daily Show to promote his new song Hope For the Future, which he composed for video game Destiny - the song appears on the game's end credits. 
According to Rolling Stone, the track was recorded in London's Abbey Road studios with a 120-piece orchestra that was conducted by George Martin's son Niles. 
The video accompanied for the track sees Paul immortalised as a hologram, as he returns after 25 years out of the music business and 34 years since he reconciled with The Beatles. 
The publication reports that Hope For The Future will be released a a single, but details have not yet been announced. 
Paul arrived in the city two days earlier along with his 53-year-old wife Nancy who looked chic in a beige coat and leggings. 
During his TV interview with Stewart, Sir Paul said he would be attending former Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr's induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and he is 'excited' about it. 
Ringo recently revealed that Paul was the one who told him about the award - The Beatles were inducted as a band back in 1988.
'It came out of the blue. I didn't expect it,' he told Rolling Stone. 'I got the call from Paul two weeks ago. He said, "This could happen. Do you want to do it?" I said, "Sure."
He added: 'It means recognition. And it means, finally, the four of us are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame even though we were the biggest pop group in the land. You know that won't look funny in black and white.'
