Paul McCartney has called popular music courses focusing on The Beatles “ridiculous”.

The 72-year-old musician made the comments while taking part in a Q&A on his website, reported BBC.

“We never studied anything, we just loved our popular music. I think for us, we’d have felt it would have ruined it to study it,” he said.

However, McCartney conceded that classes incorporating The Beatles’ music were “kind of a cool idea” and “very flattering”.

“To be told – as I was years ago now – that The Beatles were in my kid’s history books? That was like ‘What?! Unbelievable, man!” he said.

The singer added that great musicians could not be created in the classroom.

“It may be that you use [pop music courses] to teach other people about the history, that’s all valuable. But to think that you can go to a college and come out like Bob Dylan? Someone like Bob Dylan, you can’t make.”
