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.
The above photo of Paul from 1973 is the first poster i ever had of Paul, it hung behind my bed for years. I used to stare at Paul’s black Gibson acoustic guitar he was holding, and dream that one day i would get to see him play this guitar in person, never for a second dreaming it would come true. In 1993 Paul played in Australia, and for the only time in his touring career played the black Gibson on stage. The pic below the 1973 pic is a snap i took, to freeze in time a dream becoming reality.
