Cynthia Lennon

Sorry, girls, he’s married: John and Cynthia Lennon, who died today at age 75, in London airport. February 7, 1964.

“If I’d known as a teenager what falling for John Lennon would lead to, I would have turned ’round right then and walked away.”

Chaos and Creation in the Backyard

Chaos and Creation in the Backyard. Paul McCartney. 2005.

One of the better more recent McCartney offerings. Worth your time (particularly the first half).


Holly Days 2

Ads for a nearly-forgotten Paul McCartney-produced Buddy Holly covers LP by Wings mainstay Denny Laine. Paul and Linda back Denny throughout and there are plenty of odd production choices and arrangements in its half hour runtime. Good stuff if you can locate a copy. Just ignore its hideous sleeve. 1977.

McCartney New Cube

Ridiculous light-up cube that came with initial copies of Paul McCartney’s most recent LP if purchased at the FYE chain of record stores. While supplies lasted, I’m sure. 2013.
