    This must be right after George had his eyes temporarily removed.

    Those cheekbones! He belongs in a magazine. Linda took amazing photos.

    Henry, I don’t think Linda took this as she didn’t move over to London until September – she remembered Paul getting home to Cav Ave the night she arrived and they’d just cut ‘Happiness Is A Warm Gun’. Also I think Francie Schwartz was still around at this juncture?

    However it IS from one of Linda’s photo books, then she must have done!!!

    Sorry that last one should have read:
    However if the pic IS from one of Linda’s photo books, then she must have done!!!

    Didn’t Tony Bramwell take this photo?

    I recall one of those Beatles magazine specials had a section of his pictures and this looks like one of them.

    Also, if you look closely in the bottom left hand corner he’s credited for it.

    It’s Tony Bramwell alright. Henry@ missed this time.

    This time and a lot more many times too. It is 1st August 1968 and it is Tony Bramwell’s. Apologies.

    Regards.

    I seem to remember something about Linda and Paul being together in July, 1968 when they were recording “Hey Jude” and Paul played the track to the Stones and Tony Secunda(SP?) Tony wrote about Linda being a pain in the ass after Paul had left the tape of “Hey Jude” at some party they attended with the Stones and Secunda. I think the book was called “Up and down with the Rolling Stones”

    I knew I shouldn’t have went to work today…
    Henry…THAT makes 4!!!
    good eye on the detail Sir Marksman…
    (beep beep vrooom)
    Nick…that book was supposedly written by their supposed drug supplier
    (a terrible way to proclaim credibility…I’ll look for my copy)

    Hi Nick (and Kwai), yes this anecdote of Tony Sanchez’s was published in Sanchez’s scurrilous (but entertaining nonetheless) memoirs “Up And Down With the Rolling Stones” (William Morrow Books, 1979). A party was thrown for Mick’s 25th birthday at Vesuvios’ a new club that had opened on Tottenham Court Road, London, in which Sanchez had an interest. The Stones had just finished mixing their Beggar’s Banquet album in LA and Mick arrived with a tape or an acetate of it playing over the club’s PA. Then Paul and Linda arrived and Paul gave Sanchez an acetate or tape of both sides of the Fabs’ newie, Hey Jude/Revolution (which Marianne Faithfull confirmed when interviewed in The Compleat Beatles documentary). Sanchez put the tracks on and the whole club erupted and Sanchez remembered Mick looking decidely peeved. Trumped again! Paul left without picking up the tape/acetate and according to Sanchez, during the next hangover morning, Linda was on the phone screaming at him to return it at once for fear of pirating/bootlegging. Sanchez’s thoughts were “he could have any woman in the world and he chooses her” – or words to that effect. Mick’s birthday (26 July 1968) could not have been the date when this incident occurred as Hey Jude was yet to be completed. My guess is it occurred sometime just before the single’s release in August. John and Yoko were guests at the party as well.

  14. Nick says:

    I thought the date was wrong but I am surprised I even remembered that story in that book. Thanks for the clarification, though..:)

    very interesting story!

    Who’s cheekbones are you talking about ladies? (:

  17. Another_Fan says:

    Oh Michael that was hilarious! XD At first I was like wth, but then I scrolled up to the picture and bursted out in laughter!
    Interesting story about the hey jude tape indeed. Linda’s fears were understandable though. Still, it’s not nice to scream at people :)

  18. Nick says:

    I am sure that story about Linda & “Hey Jude” wasn’t true but sure made an interesting fable in Tony’s book.
