Paul McCartney and John Lennon editing Magical Mystery Tour (1967)

Whenever we doubt Paul was in love with John I rememember a photoset in the late 60s break up era of John patting a dude on the head and then Paul literally vaulting the table from the other side of the room and plonking himself between John and the intruder with a flower in his hair and the ultimate bitchface.


Paul McCartney and John Lennon, December 17, 1961, by Albert Marrion, via beatlesource.

Albert Marrion recalls “This photo session was done for [Brian] Epstein as a friendly gesture against the wishes of my partner… I took about thirty photographs…but discarded all but sixteen negatives because many showed Lennon and McCartney acting up and spoiling the pose. No doubt, those negatives should have been kept, looking back.”

Wow. Just wow.

  • “They’re like an old married couple with their kids!” – Ringo Starr
  • “John was closest of all to Paul; their relationship was very complex.“  – Cynthia Lennon 
  • "I have had two companions in my life. Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono. That’s not bad” – John Lennon
  • “Whatever bad things John said about me, he would also slip his glasses down to the end of his nose and say, ’I love you’. That’s really what I hold on to. That’s what I believe. The rest is showing off.” – Paul McCartney

My favorite vintage store uses pictures of Paul and John together as price tags and I can’t decide how to engage the propriator in a Mclennon conversation
