This is a TRUE STORY, but you have to take my word for it.

On April 3, 2010, Paul played at Sun Life Stadium in Miami. I took my new wife to see his concert. I had seen Paul several times before (as well as George and Ringo and also the Beatles in the 60’s), but she had never seen Paul or any other Beatles before. During the concert, I got up to go out and smoke a cigarette during Live And Let Die . I’ve never been impressed with the pyrotechnics, so I thought it was a good time to sneak out for a ciggie.  

I headed for the concourse which overlooks the parking lot. When I got there, there were two other smokers. From their clothes, I knew they were part of Paul’s crew. The man was one of his roadies, the woman was Paul’s hairdresser(!). I was close enough to them to accidentally “eavesdrop” on their conversation. He said to her something about not understanding why Paul would want to visit and spend time with Donald Trump. She reminded him that Paul was no longer an after-gig party animal at his age, that they had no gig lined up for the next day (which happened to be Easter), and Paul had no problems accepting Trump’s invitation to come visit at his West Palm beach property. She supposed Paul wanted or needed some diversion from the usual touring rituals. As they talked, she indicated out on the parking lot a helicopter that was waiting to give Paul a lift up the coast of Florida. That was the gist of the conversation I overheard. I was half tempted to chat them up to see if they’d take me backstage so I could watch Paul from the wings, but I thought better of it.

So at the end of the concert, I took my wife by the hand and headed to the parking lot where the helicopter was waiting. On the way, we bypassed the tour bus where we saw Paul’s band boarding. We made our way to the helicopter where there were a few other fans waiting. A minute or so later, seemingly out of nowhere, came Paul (accompanied by an assistant, carrying an overnight bag). He quickly boarded the copter. The door closed and we could see Paul wave to the gathering crowd before he moved over or back, so as not to be seen thereafter. In a few minutes, the helicopter lifted off, up, up and away. I momentarily expected the door to open and see Paul tossing out 8 x 10 glossy photos (ala the final scene of A Hard Day’s Night ).

That’s my story.

Keep in mind that this happened almost 7 years before Trump became President. I have never seen any press accounts of Paul and Trump meeting. If anyone knows of any articles or interviews about this event, please share.

My question is – what do you suppose the two talked about? Hopefully, Trump had vegan meals prepared for his guest.

GRANDFATHER: Why do you always use your left hand?

PAUL: Well, don't be daft, I've got to.

GRANDFATHER: And I take a left-handed view of life, I've got to.

We all know the outgoing president is only ever interested in discussing one single subject: The majesty of Donald J. Trump. (“Paul, you knew I was there at Shea Stadium in ’65, right? Did you see me? Don’t you remember me? Did John say anything about me? What about Ringo or the other guitar player? Because many people are saying I was the finest audience member, ever.“)
