I believe he states very matter of factly that John *did* sleep with Brian in Spain, which pissed Paul off to no end after the book came out. Way to "report" on the dead when they can't refute the rumors, Peter. :roll: Also, his account of Paul spending a weekend with two hookers in LA in '68 (I believe)...that book is the only place I've *ever* read that story so I immediately discount it. Something as salacious as that (if you don't know what I mean, read the book) would surely be reported elsewhere were it true? I'm not saying it's out of the realm of possibility (we all know how Paul was with flings before he was with Linda) but since it's never even been hinted it, I consider it suspect. And it's a pretty sleazy thing to do...he was witness at Paul and Linda's wedding and then nearly 15 years later he comes out with that? Nice one again, Peter.

Not to defend Brown, but I have read that story elsewhere - it's the weekend at the Beverly Hills Hotel that was later dubbed "The Dirty Weekend" (by Linda, perhaps). If you google Paul and that phrase, you'll find other references, and even Paul's official bio by Barry Miles mentions it.

I think the only detail that might be wrong is the claim that both women were hookers. The white woman he was with was reportedly a call girl, but the other was an African American actress named Winona Williams (the weekend was referenced rather disgustingly by a friend of Paul's as "The Paul McCartney Black and White Minstrel Show"). This was the weekend Paul kind of went insane with his libido, trying to juggle those two women in addition to inviting Peggy Lipton over *and* having Linda fly out from New York. 

On a less salacious note, this is where those cool photos of Paul sitting in a chair with a red velvet jacket come from, such as the  one where he covers all of his face except his eyes. Oh... here are some photos.

Again, not defending Brown. I just happen to favor photos of Paul from '67 and '68, so I'm more familiar with that period than any other in Beatle history. And I don't think Brown was actually there.

Just dug out of my garage a little hardcover that contains both of John's books, I bought this a few years back:

I haven't read these in probably 15 years, looking forward to it again.

I have this book and I keep it in the top of my drawer so that I can get it in times of need of inspiration or cheering up. I love it, he was so funny.
