Sounds good. Something else to go on the Christmas list.

Moving along in our God given ways, safety is sat by the fire/Sanctuary from these feverish smiles, left with a mark on the door.

Trouble with the Lennon McCartney exchanges have to be put into context. Found this interesting with both sides of the argument

http://www.beatlesinterviews.o…..atles.html

I think there's a draft of that letter in the Lennon Letters...I think its so sad that they were like that with each other. I feel worse for Paul because the things John says about him- in that letter, in interviews and in How Do You Sleep?- are awful, like having acid chucked at you. I feel angry that John wouldn't empathise with Paul, but then again he must've felt pretty betrayed when Paul sued him, George and Ringo.

Its so sad that such a wonderful friendship ended so bitterly :(

he did say many times that it was the UK press's "fault" they started doing heroin (which I think is a bunch of BS)

Wait, what? Any links? That's amazing.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at Vimeo or YouTube.
