OH MY GOSH.
let’s face it…
(RAT PACK with wings)
Love your sense of humor!
hey, martha…John needs his specs
THE GUY IN THIS PHOTO IS MY FRIENDS’ COUSIN!!!!!!!!!!!! NO JOKE!!!!!! THE GUY TO THE LEFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chuck E. Cheese, the early days.
What the hell is that thing?
the guy on the left is Vincent Romeo(then manager?)
…and that thing is a “Womble”
I am thoroughly creeped out by this picture…
Chris is right, that is Vincent Romeo to the left. I was a good friend of Vincent but had a falling out. He gave me a copy of this picture too. I’m afraid to ask, but Chris, do you know how he’s doing?(Vincent that is)
Left to right: Vincent Romeo (Paul’s manager at the time), Wellington Womble (likely Robin LeMesurier in the costume, but alternatively it could be Chris Spedding), Linda, Paul. This photo originally appeared in the 1976 magazine “Paul McCartney: Beatle On Wings”. The Wombles, according to the five full length novels written about their adventures, are a family of creatures that live under Wimbledon Common. They collect and recycle the litter Human Beings leave behind, making them the first eco-conscious children’s characters – 3 years before Dr. Seuss’s “The Lorax”. Google “Wombles” if you want to know more about the characters, the books in which they appeared, the TV series based on the books and the band based on the TV series. In America they (Wombles) were one hit wonders (#55 on the Billboard chart with spot-on Beach Boys pastiche “Wombling Summer Party”) but in the UK they notched up 8 hit singles and 4 chart albums, with “Wombling Merry Christmas” their highest charting single, reaching #2. But there’s a deeper connection between the Wombles and the Beatles as this site will reveal: https://sites.google.com/site/40thand45thanniversary/home/degrees-of-separation
