It’s not like Nick and Toni’s, the premiere eatery in East Hampton, doesn’t host a lot of celebrities. But on Friday night it was rockin’–literally. First came Ron Delsener, world famous concert promoter, and his wife Ellin, who runs Event Associates. They were waiting for someone, but it was unclear who.
Then who arrives? None other than Paul McCartney with fiancee Nancy Shevell. McCartney, introduced to the Hamptons by late wife Linda’s family, the Eastmans, has a compound of his own in Amagansett. Paul and Nancy stopped for a while to chat with the Delseners, greeted others in the restaurant’s front room, and then took a table in the cozy back area.
Soon after, the Delseners welcomed Pink Floyd composer Roger Waters and his longtime girlfriend Laurie Durning. Within an hour, McCartney and Shevell–having finished a short veggie meal–were back. And then the ex Beatle and the ex Floyd were in heavy confab. Was it sort of mindblowing to see the two men behind the two most famous rock albums of all time–”Sgt. Pepper” and “Dark Side of the Moon”–just chatting away? You betcha. I ordered an extra coffee just so I could stay at my perch!Last Updated: 09/08/11 07:09
