with Keith Moon he was friends with for sure, there exist pictures. In the Rockestra video footage you see some rock star friends. I think Pete Townsend is a friend. Donovan recently said he kind of belongs to the family.
In a recent interview Mary Mccartney said Ringo and Mick Jagger frequently went in and out their home.
In the early 70th Paul was with Linda and his children most of the time, after all he was newly married and devoted father and didn't want to hang out with rock star friends so much.
not so sure they were. i think pete thought paul was sort of corny. if you get a chance to see rochestra live, paul asked them all to wear these silver top hats, most being smaller stars than paul, obliged. but pete didn't. he went on the record as saying there was no way he would wear that stupid hat. now...is that proof he and pete weren't friends? of course not (especially since pete performed on paul's press to play album) but it does suggest that pete was willing to stand up to paul.
and i saw pictures with paul and keith moon. keith was even seen wearing a wings shirt (maybe even on the night keith died...memory is fuzzy) but keith and paul were nothing alike. with paul being the married family man and keith moon being the horse-tranquilizing-injecting-gallon of bourbon-swilling-hotel-destroying good timer that he was...i don't see them as being anything more than publicly friendly...while avoiding each other in their private lives. but...just saying what i think...not what i know.
