Paul McCartney maintains two personas

Paul McCartney keeps fame from driving him crazy by maintaining two versions of himself.

McCartney tells ABC's "The View" he separates the real Paul from the famous Paul. He says Famous Paul does the shows and Real Paul goes home and watches TV.

He extended that idea to his music. He says normally he sings at the high end of his range, but he dropped to his lower range for his new album, "Electric Arguments." He released that album under his alter ego, The Fireman.

There's only one audience where McCartney has to fight to prove he's famous: young girls. He says they know him only as the father of fashion designer Stella McCartney.
