Paul McCartney’s wife-to-be Heather Mills knows next to nothing about the Beatles and does not recognize their songs, the ex-Beatle told a German magazine on Wednesday.

“She doesn’t know a single song. Heather grew up with classical music and had friends who listened to hard rock such as AC/DC. She had no Beatles records at home,” McCartney said in an interview in Stern.

“Once I was sitting at my piano and was humming a new song. Heather said ‘Oh, a nice song. Which Beatles piece is that?’ None at all, I said, I’ve just written it. I named the song ‘Heather’,” McCartney was quoted as saying. McCartney, 59, and Mills, 33, announced their engagement in London in July.
