You know when people ask you if there is ‘one’ bit of memorabilia of Paul’s you could have, what would it be?. I’ve thought long and hard about this, mostly hard (tho lets not downplay the long) and there were quite a few contenders.
His undies he had to wear for nine days strait, during his jail time in Tokyo were up there, as was his suit he wore to court in Campbeltown to visit the judge (who was a great guy), the Hofner just so i could ritualistically burn it, and lets not leave out his Heringbone jacket he still wears since purchasing it in 1967.
But no, none of those item’s even come close to my true desire, my true want. Linda’s silver glam boots from 1973, THAT’S what i want in my Beatle display case, tho only when i’m not wearing them, prancing around my room naked, striking Betty Boop poses in the mirror.
Take a moment to visualise that, that is the image of a real fan.
In a gracious interview with the UK Guardian published Saturday, Yoko Ono thanked Paul McCartney for his comments that she wasn’t responsible for the breakup of the Beatles.
“I thought people knew that I was not responsible, but surprisingly, many people still felt that. He was very brave. So I’d like to say ‘Thank you, Paul. I love you, we love you,’
Years ago i was at a party talking to a guy, the subject got around to music and The Beatles, this guy said ‘Oh, i know George, he’s a family friend’, i kinda didn’t totally believe him, as you must agree, having Hari as a family friend is unique. He said ‘No, i can prove it’, he went to the bookshelf and pulled out a copy of ‘I Me Mine’ inscribd to him in Georges hand. In the last few days these pics have surface on the net, and i was blown away to see they are of the guy Simon i spoke to at the party, and of his family in Perth with George
