London: The Beatles star Paul McCartney says he has stopped drinking alcohol before performing because he would otherwise forget the words to his songs.

After saying no to alcohol, the music legend says he relies on a handful of chocolate raisins and salted cashew nuts to get him into the zone before going on stage, reports express.co.uk.

Asked if he enjoys a drink to calm his nerves prior to gigs, McCartney said: "No. I used to try that, particularly in the early days of Wings when we would tour. But it didn't work. I would just forget the lyrics."

He says his bandmates do have "red wine" before shows.

McCartney added: "I don't eat or drink before I go on because I sort of like to feel light. Then afterwards I can get heavy and have a drink. But before I go on I don't do that. I do have little sort of snacky things in the dressing room that I might just grab like chocolate covered raisins and equal amounts of salted cashews."
