Maureen is pretty IMO. 

When I was a bit younger, I used to imitate her make up a bit and had a similar haircut. She always looked great, great style.

Paul speaking about Nancy: "'She's a party girl!'"

And while Paul McCartney tends to keep his marriage to Nancy Shevall private, he did open up about the brunette businesswoman to Australia's 60 Minutes on Sunday.

'She's a party girl,' laughed the clearly-smitten 75-year-old.

I hope that episode of 60 Minutes comes to the US or at least to an internet screen near me. He looks so cute in the video.

Ohhh Boy likes to watch shows where they fix up old cars. Last night they were fixing up a Chevelle.

I bet you can figure out the thought that popped into my mind immediately.

I wonder if Nancy Shevell ever owned a Chevelle. LOL!

Someone needs to inform Paul that Glasgow is a city, not a town.

Cynthia Lennon: Like John, lost a parent early in life. An accomplished artist herself. Admirable for dealing with the massive fame and personal intrusion she didn't ask for.

Patti Boyd: Beatles' male insiders regarded her as having a low IQ for constantly using the phrase 'goody gumdrops' and for speaking with a plush home counties accent. In reality, she was pretty street smart and they couldn't keep up with her. Was the first to discover transcendental meditation.

Jane Asher: From a talented, professional, eccentric family. Can play the guitar and piano. She's a voracious reader, so she must have influenced Paul's vocabulary for his lyrics. John got the credit. She held concerns about the environment as far back as 1966 when no one else cared.

Maureen Starkey: Got into furniture and clothing design which she shared with Ringo.

Tune In vol. 2 extended edition page 1186 (in Hamburg, April-June 1962):

...John struck up a situation with Bettina Derlein. Known to the English musicians as Big Betty, she was beautiful and massive...

Bettina's friend Rosi Webber says, "...I do know that John had a very strong sexual appetite and was weird with his tastes - he was attracted to Bettina because she was out of proportion."

The part about being weird with his tastes made me think of what people thought of John for choosing Yoko.

In reality, she was pretty street smart and they couldn't keep up with her. Was the first to discover transcendental meditation influencing both George and Paul. She was instrumental in getting them to India where she developed her considerable talent for photography.

  

Where'd you get that from, I've never heard that about Pattie- quite funny if it's true though.

 

I remember reading this statement before about the Beatles' partners, and it's stuck with me. Their first wife (or long-term girlfriend in Paul's case) was their idea of what a wife 'should' be. 

Cynthia: homely, sweet, very much a woman who adored being a mother and it was the thing she was meant to be. She wasn't an avid partier and preferred being at home with her child or painting, to going out to nightclubs. 

Jane: intelligent, gorgeous, talented actress. However, her constant touring, and needing to be outside of London for recordings really damaged their relationship.

Pattie: once again gorgeous, extroverted, partier. Very much a fun-times girl, got on well with everyone, and was the life and soul of the room. 

Maureen: quiet, pleasant, very supportive and patient with Ringo, used to stay up 'til the early hours of the morning so she could have his dinner heated for him when he came home from studio sessions.

 

Their second wives (or first wife for Paul) were really what they were looking for:

Yoko: loud, confident, very abstract-minded. Very experimental and could challenge John.

Linda: very supportive, always there for Paul, used to go everywhere with him, cared for the kids, and used to cook dinner- perfect textbook housewife.

Olivia: supportive, strong, preferred to remain in the background

Barbara: willing to try anything, stunning, and once again supportive.

 

Obviously this is summing up the wives in short snippets, their personalities being far more than what I just wrote but I think it's a decent summary of their relationship to their husbands/boyfriend.

The rumour mill is spinning that Olivia is going out with Steve Perry (of Journey fame). They went to see LOVE together last week, but we have no official confirmation as to what's up. If she has found someone then I'm happy for Olivia.

 

He did a cover of I Need You last year. He said in an interview about trying to record INY

"A friend of mine, Steve Ferrone, is very close to [George Harrison 's widow] Olivia Harrison, and I said, 'Someday, I'd love to play the song for her and get her blessing. You ask her.' So he comes back and he says, 'I spoke to her. Here's her e-mail. She said give her a call.' I said, 'What?' So, all of a sudden, I'm e-mailing Olivia Harrison and I'm trying to be very careful with every question. 'Can I please talk to you? I just wanna play you this song?' And she gets back to me immediately; it was so beautiful. So I went to her office and I played her the song, and I was so nervous. Because when you're in the George Harrison  environment, you just feel him there. And it's Olivia. So she listen[ed] to it and then she quickly grabbed the remote and restarted [the song]. [And I thought,] 'I hope she loves it.' And she restarted it and got halfway through the second listen and said, 'George would have loved this version.' And I'm telling you, I got the blessing."

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 That is a lovely cover. I can't say I've ever been a great fan of his voice, but it works there. George would have approved. paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I'm reminded just now that Journey covered "It's All Too Much " (quite poorly) on one of their earliest prog-jazzy LPs, before Perry was even a member. 

And look, I just found a live versh (w/introductory Hari shout out!) from 1974, if anyone cares...

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

Yikes, I'm not a fan of that version! It's too far removed from It's All Too Much without being different. It's in the 'uncanny valley', if you will.

Oh, by the way, this post was made by The Hole Got Fixed!

Meetthebeatlesforreal, valuable for its observations from people about the Beatles who were actually there at the time. Yoko seemed to be accepted by fans contrary to popular opinion. Poor Patti!  I'm sure she wasn't the airhead she was portrayed to be at all. I think she just wanted to be loved.

Two were very supportive, others only just supportive and the rest were not even supportive of their men at all, apparently, and responsible for the failure of their marriages/relationships to boot. It's just so wrong as to be laughable.
