From Stella McCartney’s Instagram, 10 July 2014:

Tim Blanks: “When you think about your dad going off to India with the Maharishi [Mahesh Yogi] in the ’60s, it makes you realize how trendy a lot of it is.”

Stella McCartney: “I know. Did you see Martin Scorsese’s George Harrison documentary? I was like, Wow, they really got a lot of flak for that.”

Blanks: “What did you think of the film?”

McCartney: “I loved it. Martin Scorsese is a genius. Olivia Harrison is a fucking cool chick. I wanted to cry when Dhani [Harrison, George’s son] was reading out George’s parts. I thought it was really a beautiful tribute to an amazing man. It’s really important that people know more about George, because obviously he didn’t get as much attention as the others.”

Blanks: “You think they’ll ever do one for Ringo?”

McCartney: “Yes … [laughs] Definitely. I thought Ringo was really cool in it!”

Blanks: “Is there a children-of-The Beatles thing?”

McCartney: “Yeah, we’re all family. We’re all related deep down.”

Blanks: “And a children-of-children-of-The Beatles thing?”

McCartney: “I don’t know about that. We haven’t done that quite yet. They’re all too little. But there will be. We just need to all get together. But there’s definitely enough children of children of Beatles. Ringo’s daughter Lee [Starkey] just had triplets. Jay [Starkey], her brother, has got four boys. Dhani will have children soon, I’m sure. He’s like the little brother.”

    It always cheers me up when I read that the children are carrying the bond forward. I’d really like to think that from Julian to Beatrice, they feel like family.

    ‘He’s like the little brother.’ Hilarious. Is Stella being deliberately ironic? If so, top marks.

    “A Working Class Beatle is something to be…”
    (NO coattail riders!)

    Genetics for sale…(the inconsolable burden)

  8. In an ever increasing shitful world the Fabs, the family and the story around them gives many (some) that inspire of it all, family endures, and family doesn’t have to be blood related.
