At this year's Lollapalooza, the sound bleed from Kaskade’s stage meant that it interrupted Paul McCartney’s acoustic guitar during a tribute to John Lennon in his set. "I intended this," McCartney joked as Kaskade’s bass crossed over to his stage. "It's like a crazy mash-up of this song and whatever shit they're playing."

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Kaskade has revealed that he “couldn’t stop laughing” when he heard this news. The 44 year-old producer then went on to say: “I love that! There’s something irreverent about electronic music, that it’s very young and youthful, so the fact that I pissed some old guy off is very funny. Life achievement unlocked."

Paul McCartney’s previously displayed a reverence for electronic music, and even joined Afrojack on stage during Coachella in 2011.

Here’s the footage of Paul getting fired up with the Chicago producer:
