    Pablo Picasso died April 8 1973.

    The story of how Paul wrote the song “Drink To Me…” in Dustin Hoffman’s presence is well known. Paul & Linda were on holiday in Kingston Jamaica, in 1973, where they met Hoffman and were invited to dinner. Paul wrote the song on the spot, in response to a magazine article Hoffman showed him about Picasso’s recent death, to Hoffman’s complete amazement.

    Im no “datey”, but I’m estimating the photo above is from about ’84 or 85?

    I’ve always loved this song and wished he would play it live in recent tours. I don’t think he’s pulled that one out since the ’76 tour.

    Didn’t Dustin ask Paul if he could write a song on the spot based on the magazine article? I think that Dustin was in Jamaica filming “Papillon”.

    who played drums on ” the pound is sinking ” ? It doesn’t say on the album jacket, does it? My guess would be Steve Gadd. He plays on Somebody Who Cares with Stanley Clarke, Denny Laine and Eric Stewart. The same lineup as The Pound is Sinking.
