I could feel all the forces of Benny Hill willing me to write a vulgar caption for this, but of course, as ever with me, good taste won the day. Strange fact, i have a best friend, as well as a family member who absolutely cannot touch velvet, it makes them freak out, myself i can’t go near cats, i sneeze, eyes water .. most unseemly.
Paul McCartney flew to Monteserrat, where Beatles producer George Martin had installed a state-of-the-art studio, to begin work on a solo album. The studio manager revealed that McCartney was planning to record with both Harrison and Starkey; ‘John Lennon may well have been on the album as well if he had still been alive.’ A guest at the sessions was the Beatles’ long-time friend rockabilly pioneer Carl Perkins. He played McCartney a song he had just written, entitled ‘My Old Friend’. ‘After I finished,’ he recalled,
Paul was crying, tears were rolling down his pretty cheeks, and Linda said, ‘Carl, thank you so much.’ I said, ‘Linda, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to make you cry.’ She said, ‘But he’s crying, and he needed to. He hasn’t been able to really break down since that happened to John.’ And she put her arm around me and said, ‘But how did you know?’ I said, ‘Know what?’ She said, ‘There’s two people in the world that know what John Lennon said to Paul, the last thing he said to him. But now there’s three, and one of them’s you, you know it.’ I said, ‘Girl, you’re freaking me out! I don’t know what you’re talking about!’ She said that the last words that John Lennon said to Paul in the hallway of the Dakota building were, he patted him on the shoulder and said, ‘Think about me every now and then, old friend.’
And that, with minor alterations, was the chorus line of Perkins’ song, ‘McCartney really feels that Lennon sent me that song, he really does.’
Miss Tammy is back!!, i’m bung full of Beatle Juice, after five weeks of being denied release i’m just about ready to pop!, so let me wade through my 800 backed up emails and i’ll be posting a lot more frequently.

Hi everyone, PLEASE don’t desert Miss Tammy’s listing ship, MAJOR net problems, when i moved apartments i thought it would be a simple process transfering my ADSL .. *WRONG!!*, i’ve had to find another provider and i’ve been told through an outsourced consultant that it may take up to twenty days to get me back on line, i mean this is Australia, not outter Bolivia powered by piped flatulance from prolapsed camels. So please hold tight, i’m not going anywhere, i’m just on cyber pause, through no fault of my own, as soon as i’m connected up, and not stuck in Macca’s sucking dry there free WIFI, i’ll be back posting. This is SOOO beyond frustrating. Greg xoxo
