As I Was Telling Paul... 8-29-66...

If there’s one entertainer in the world who has the right to turn down any more interview requests from now until the end of time, it’s Paul McCartney.  He’s done it all..  done it well… he has nothing to prove.  But I’ll always be able to say something not many people can.  And that is… “As I was telling Paul..”  He was gracious enough to sit and talk to me in one of his dressing rooms when he came to Sacramento.  I was reminded of that visit because today is the anniversary of the Beatles last official concert..   played before a less-than-sellout crowd at Candlestick Park on August 29, 1966.  And though he’d been asked about it 5 million times, he told me what you already know about that historic night in San Francisco.   That their mind-boggling journey to stardom had become difficult.  It was two years of non-stop bedlam..  and on stage, they couldn’t even hear themselves play.  They were just tired, and they had other musical ideas to explore.  Looks like it was a good call.  Of the famous ones, I’ve never met a more down to earth, gracious person.  Yeah, as I was telling Paul… luizfernando photo
