Today In Paul McCartney History

Happy Birthday, Mary Anna McCartney

Screencaps of the supposed “destroyed” footage of John Lennon’s Double Fantasy sessions. Footage of wife, Yoko, first surfaced in 1984. Let’s hope John’s footage sees the day of light soon.

Rest in Paradise, Eppy ♥

47 years ago we lost a beautiful soul. Brian Epstein passed away on August 27, 1967. A huge loss to the Beatles family and to the world itself. You’ll always be in our hearts and we will forever thank you for all the things you did for John, Paul George & Ringo. You were the GREATEST manager anyone could ever ask for, no doubt about it.  

We love you, Brian. <3

Paul McCartney’s “Apple Jacket”

McCartney’s “Apple jacket” is in no doubt recognisable to the world as Paul’s casual jacket from 1967 straight through the Beatles career end. The jacket made it’s debut on August 24, 1967 in London (TL), during the bands meeting with the Maharishi. It is seen continuously in literally dozens of images straight through to 1969.

Those appearances include the rehearsals for and the final cut of the film Magical Mystery Tour, as well as the hugely important May 11, 1968 trip to New York with John to announce the formation of Apple, Ltd (2ndR). (Hence, the name/color.)

John Lennon with his wife Cynthia, along with the Beatles party, attending an international Meditation Society meeting conducted by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi at Normal College in Bangor, Wales. Their stay was to be for ten days, but unfortunately it would be cut short the next day due to the news of Brian Epstein’s death

August 25, 1967

The Beatles on a train with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on their way to Bangor, Wales.

It was on this visit, a few days later, that the Beatles would be told that their manager, Brian Epstein, had passed away due to a supposed drug overdose of sleeping pills.

This was also the train ride in which Cynthia Lennon (John’s wife at the time) was left behind on the platform stopped by two policemen. Cynthia later stated in her book ‘John’ that she was “crying because the incident seemed symbolic of what was happening to my marriage. John was on the train, speeding into the future, and I was left behind.”
