Well, there's a pretty unsavory passage in a book by some "professional" groupie (can't remember the title) where George merrily strummed away on his ukelele while getting "serviced" by 2 ladies sometime in the late 70s/80s. So the Madonna fling...I'd buy it if it turned out it was true, doesn't seem like it'd be out of the realm of possibility for George!

 

The book is You'll Never Make Love in This Town Again. It was just one woman, and she wasn't a groupie but a call girl. This article mentions the George bit. Funny, I'd forgotten there was a George chapter and I'd gotten rid of the book a couple of years ago during a spring cleaning.

Ah that's the book, thanks! I thought I'd remembered there were 2...either both participating, or one doing and one watching. Either way, not a great situation for George to have immortalized! a-hard-days-night-george-4a-hard-days-night-ringo-14a-hard-days-night-ringo-6a-hard-days-night-paul-7

One question, did Paul and John make up (that's not the right word either, grrr! erm...) what was their relationship like leading up to Johns murder? I know that Paul and Linda went to Johns in '76 and were told to go away and call before turning up the next time and also that Yoko didn't send Paul's call to John thru in the Hit Studios, just not that sure of what went in between those times, don't remember ever reading anything in-between. Certainly John was aware of what Paul was doing as he mentioned Coming Up as one of the songs that got him back into the studio but had there been any actual communication between the two or was it all friendly vibes but no contact?

Yes, they were speaking on the phone, and Paul has spoken in interviews about how grateful he was that they had made peace. I was trying to find a specific interview and can't at the moment, but he did reference their reconnecting in his speech for John's induction into the Hall of Fame.

Weren't we just talking about their "making out" in John's gay leanings thread? (Insert giggle here) Anyway, Paul and John had made up, and I too can't find a good citation for that fact. Just speculation, but I don't know if Paul could have written "Here Today" (sniffle, sniffle) if there was still bad blood between himsef and John.

Writing Here Today doesn't show that they had made up as I have no doubt that even if they hadn't, like with George and John and the rewriting of All Those Years Ago, any crap between them was in the big scheme of life nothing when it came down to it.

Never heard or read anything of Paul and John in communication after '76 so that's new info. Is there any credible source for this or is it just a rumour, just a rumour?... Possibly? Go on say yes... Thank you.

No, definitely not a rumor, and if I can find one of those interviews with Paul again, I'll post it. He's mentioned their conversations about kids and baking bread a few times, and as DrBeatle said, it sounds like that happened as late as 1980. And I'm sure finding a transcript of his Hall of Fame speech is easy.

I've also read about Yoko being behind the Japan drug bust and that it was to do with the hotel Paul and Linda were staying in, cant remember where I read that but the same source then quickly went on to Pauls call to John being blocked by Yoko which makes me think it was an anti-Yoko thing.

Here's a BlogSpot that looks at when John and Paul last met (John says '76 which is why i would have thought it was then) and mentions James saying he had his photo taken with John which would put Johns date in doubt amongst other things. There is also a link to a Facebook page which contains a photo scan of a magazine interview with James who states near the top of the third column "I know John held me as a baby. Then I have memories of the Dakota building, very white, lots of sunlight pouring in". So we have a source - The Sunday Times.
