McCartney performed the song live at Abbey Road for the TV special Chaos and Creation at Abbey Road.
Paul McCartney confessed he was helped by George Harrison's spirit to write the song and lyrics for 'Friends To Go', over three years after the Beatles guitarist's death. "The funny thing about it was I felt as if I was almost George Harrison during the writing of that song," said McCartney "I just got this feeling, this is George. So it was like I was writing - I was like George - writing one of his songs. So I just wrote it, it just wrote itself very easily 'cause it wasn't even me writing it."
