Paul McCartney's leather room

Staunch vegetarian Sir Paul McCartney stayed in a leather-clad "ranch room".

The 66-year-old musician - who refuses to buy leather shoes and even asked for the leather interior in his Lexus car to be swapped for cloth - is currently on a US road trip with girlfriend Nancy Shevell, and the pair stayed in the specially decorated room during a stop-off in Texas.

A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "He booked the room himself, but wouldn't have realised that it had so much leather in its interior.

"He would have been a bit annoyed, but the whole point of the trip is to travel anonymously so he wouldn't have caused a fuss.

"He can't change how other people decorate a room."

The manager of the Ambassador, where the couple booked the £200-a-night Presidential Suite, claims the hotel is renowned for its interior.

He said: "Everything is leather, as if you were a rich rancher. I think they got a kick out of that."

Meanwhile, Paul and Nancy amazed onlookers with by posing for photographs like any other couple while on their trip.

One onlooker said: "They looked really close. There was no security around him or minders.

"They just looked like two lovers wrapped up in each other's company."
