Did Paul McCartney make pit stop in Springfield?
Springfield may have had its first visit from a Beatle on Saturday afternoon ,when someone who sure looked like Sir Paul McCartney strolled into the Circle K gas station/convenience store, 3261 Clear Lake Ave.

The five friends who had their picture taken with the visitor say there’s no question it was McCartney. McCartney’s publicist in the United Kingdom has not been reachable this afternoon to confirm the singer’s whereabouts.

C.J. Lowder of Springfield noticed the man when he came back outside the convenience store.

His cousin, Josh Lowder, said “Hey, Paul!” and that led to this photograph, which the group said was taken by McCartney’s girlfriend, Nancy Shevell.

McCartney told the group he was on his way to St. Louis, but didn’t say why. Details in Tuesday’s State Journal-Register.

* NOTE FROM TAMMY: You’ve just gotta love Paul, people rag him out for being ‘ordinary’ but i really believe this attitude is what has kept him pretty sane and grounded, i’ve heard tons of stories of Paul just driving across the US and the UK stopping in at odd places and hanging out, i cant help but think that if people like Elvis had been a lot more grounded and not surrounded by ‘yes’ men then they’d still be around, i remember when Paul was in Australia we were all waiting for a big motorcade and police escort for Paul to arrive for rehearsals, but we were all taken by surprise and he almost slipped by us when Paul (who was driving), Linda and the kids drove past us in a Ford obviously after a day relaxing at the beach. You do have to wonder at just how many frequent flyer points Paul must accumulate, in the past two weeks alone Paul was in the UK, flew to New York for the Shea concert, then flew to Canada for the Quebec concert, then back to the UK for Alisdhairs exhibition and now he’s back in the States and driving across the country, whatever he’s drinking i want some of it.

QUEBEC JULY 2008:

Monday, August 4th, 2008









A couple of weeks ago Paul played a free concert in Quebec, and this weekend i was lucky enough to get to watch a dvd of the concert. The show was amazingly brillient and because it was free it seemed like Paul felt he could stretch a little with the set list, now for Paul to vary his set lists even just a little is an amazing feat, it was a real shock to see him bring back a song from Chaos and creation as Paul has hardly ever brought a solo song back from the previous tour. If anyone gets to see this dvd make sure to watch the extended jam ending on ‘I’ve got a feeling’ for my money Paul plays his best ever live guitar solo, it’s just amazing and was a real jaw dropper, all my friends who arent really Paul fans blew out when they saw this, they just thought Paul was bass player.
