Will never forget and never regret, only the loss of those who meant so much.

Paul was a cutie when he was young[Linked Image]I don't remember the name of this guy in the back ground but he was with Paul and John before they where the beetles.I don't guess any of you guys had a Beetle (as in hairstyle). I got busted by the battalion commander to private over an incident where he asked me to take my cover off on the field during inspection because he knew I had greased it up to disguise it. ...Look at the ears on this guy do you think he had cosmetic surgery latter when he got some money ahead? ...and look at the eye brows on John below. tell me he didn't pluck those puppies .
Look at the shot below under the cut. (Adults only)

George was a nice guy. I met him a few times in the 70's & 80's, as he was a regular customer at a bookshop owned by friends. He liked to be treated as "one of the guys" with absolutely no deference to his fame. The worst thing that ever happened to him was when he was shot in his own house trying to deal with an intruder, who may well have been intent on murdering George. After what had happened to John this really shook him and he never recovered psychologically. He rarely ever left his estate after that and never again wandered around Henley, his local town where the bookshop was.

The picture is of Stuart Sutcliffe in Hamburg in 1960 or 61: He left to pursue an art career, and produced some very good work in the short period before he died of a brain hemorrhage.

I was very lucky to have seen the Beatles 3 times in concert, including the time I ran away from home at age 12, and after being Hugged by a screaming "older woman" (15-18?) decided a career in music was for me!

I spent 25 years with many major bands, and Paul was always as nice as he seems to be, a real class act....

FWIW, the 2 other nicer than you can imagine super stars....Phil Collins and Dolly Parton: she really is as nice as she appears on TV, the most down to earth woman you could ever meet

I worked for Simmons Drums for several years in the late 80's and met, or more often saw, lots of "Stars" touring the factory and the demo rooms. Almost all were stuck up pompous idiots. One of the exceptions was Phil Collins - who I managed to hit in the face with a swinging door on my very first day and he thought it very funny. Some, musically, might wish I'd done it a bit harder but there you go.
