(Newser) – Is 26 too young to recognize a member of the most popular group in music history? Apparently for some, like the hitchhiker who got picked up by Paul McCartney on the West Indies island of Mustique—and didn’t realize it until Macca started discussing upcoming concerts. “I wasn’t a big Beatles fan and did not recognize him at first,” the hitcher tells the Mirror. “We had a good chat and he was a very down-to-earth guy.”
