Girl4, I have heard (again, having lived in New York, and worked in fancy schmancy CPW co-ops, I was probably, by lucky circumstance, a bit more privy to things most "mortals" aren't) that Paul is exceedingly more outgoing and fan friendly than John was. One of my bosses who had worked on Park Ave. at one time remembers Paul moving in to his building for a short time, and he was extremely congenial, autographing things, chatting up the staff, etc. However, he was CHEAP as a MF. His words, not mine.

John, on the other hand (and, I guess, by extension, Yoko), was exceedingly GENEROUS to staff and workers.

Go figure.

Ed Sullivan Show - Feb 9, 1964 - 1st song - "All My Loving". He's been like a family member ever since then. I was devastated like every Beatles fan when they broke up and thought it would never be the same. Then I heard Uncle Albert on the car radio for the first time and realized Paul was here to stay!
May sweet memories of friends from the past
Always come to you, when you look for them
And your inspiration long may it last
May it come to you time and time again

I remember it well. I also remember my Uncle Vin, sitting in his chair in front of the TV poking fun at them. I didn't see the humor. I just heard and saw something amazing. Even at the age of 6!

Fortunately, my dad never made fun of them EXCEPT when they would use a double negative. He disliked people who used improper English. My mom, on the other hand, thought they were good. Her favorite song was "Come Together". But my dad did like "Mull of Kintyre" ONLY because of the bag pipes. He LOVED bag pipe music. He didn't even know Paul had written the song. I played it for him and he didn't recognize it. HAHHAA!! Shows to go you.

The things one remembers.
