I’d never actually seen a picture or video of Paul being knighted.

I always think the Queen looks like she’s genuinely pleased getting to shake *his* hand in these clips beatlemaniacs_02_gif

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Sometimes a YouTube video about Paul has stills (or even brief footage) I’ve never seen before.  This one has lots — like this still:

Here’s a photo of him taken by MJ Kim backstage of the ‘Got Back’ tour, holding a cup of tea.

I’ll bet none of you Forumpuddlians have seen this photo! The dirt bike belongs to the son of Curly Putnam Jr., the writer of Green Green Grass of Home, and many other fine country songs. Apparently, Curly Putnam jumped at the chance to let Paul and his Wings entourage use his farmstead to record some music for a couple of weeks, while he and his family vacationed in Hawaii (Paul paid him a handsome sum).

This was in 1974. It was during that stay that Paul and his Wingmen recorded Junior’s Farm. How cool would that have been to hear Junior’s Farm emanating from a barn in Tennessee while one is smoking a joint nearby leaning against a hickory tree on a sunny day (and maybe complementing that with some Boone’s Farm strawberry wine).

I have never seen the photo before either. It’s so cool.

Can anyone locate a picture of Paul where he’s standing at an art gallery exhibit talking with someone, and he’s holding a glass of white wine?  I can’t pinpoint the year, but I’d guess between 1995-2005

@Sea Belt This is from the reopening of the Brian Fraser Gallery (Groovy Bob) in London, 1983. I know this is to early to match your timeline, but is this the type of picture you remember?

Sort of, but the pic I remember was less fun, a bit more formal, and he was holding a white wine glass while the person he was talking to didn’t have anything.  He looks like he’s holding a whiskey glass here?

Gotcha! Here’s one from the Established and Sons London gallery opening on October 11, 2007 (but that’s a bit past your timeline). I’ve got a thing for digital images, as collecting hardcopy ones in the 1960s was quite a task. I’m sure what you are looking for will pop up soon.
