Nothing's off-limits on Stern's show, which is just one of the things artists love about being there.

"I love Howard for his truth, humor and fearlessness whenever I go on his show. He tries to find out how many times I got laid when I was in the Beatles. I find the best way to deal with him is to adopt the attitude of a slightly disapproving elder brother, as questions like that are none of his business. He still asks them and I love him for it." -Paul McCartney
