I thought this thread might work because it was called “Lovely Linda McCartney: 15 Years Ago Today”, which I thought could be adapted to something similar to mmm’s suggestion. Only the “15 Years Ago Today” needed replacing.

The Lovely Linda , Veggie Cook of the House: An Appreciation Thread”.

  

Some idiot would come on arguing over being a vegetarian, totally missing the point of the thread.

I’m not a veggie, but I’ve had Linda’s pies and burgers before and they’re nice. I’d go as far to say I enjoy the latter more over actual hamburger meat.

But yes, finally one big place to appreciate this wonderful woman, all her talents and the love and inspiration she provided over the years for our Macca. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

I’ve had some very nice veggie burgers but never a nice veggie sausage.

Naw, he loved Linda. Putting her down wouldn’t get me on his good side…which is where I’d like to be.

I’ve been thinking about Linda’s vocals. I *love* them, partly for some of the things she got a lot of flack for. Someone mentioned up-thread how punk she sounds, and I agree. I’d love to know if she was a big influence (conscious or not) on changes in expectations for women’s voices. Do you know of anyone who cited her as an influence?

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

I particularly enjoy Linda’s vocals on the Ram album.

I don’t but, like you, I am also interested to know.
