Okay...it works this way. Must be the link.

Martha liked Paul's step-sister Ruth too.

Couldn't agree more.

Fashion went absent without leave (has it ever recovered?) somewhere in, or maybe slightly after, 1970.....i.e., and I don't think it's a coincidence, when The Beatles split.
Check out pictures of The Stones or The Who or The Kinks in 1966 v. any time after 1970 for proof.

So far, I've learned that music and fashion both died in 1969. What else? I'm scared to ask your opinion on cinematography... ;D

From Bill Harry's The Paul McCartney Encyclopedia...


Martha

The most famous of Paul's pets and the first real pet that he ever had. He acquired Martha when he moved into Cavendish Avenue from Ann Davis, a breeder in High Wycombe. This Old English sheepdog gained immortality when Paul used her name in the song 'Martha My Dear'. Martha was born in 1966 and died at the age of fifteen in August 1981 at Paul's farmhouse in Scotland.

One of Martha's puppies, Arrow, appeared on the Paul Is Live album...

At least you're learning something, Ovi!

So, you think the 'Abbey Road' sleeve would have been enhanced by The Beatles being dressed like The Rubettes?
You honestly think that the 'Black & Blue' era Stones look better than they did in those Linda photographs taken in '66?

Really?

It was just a prop.  According Stephen Goldblatt who photographed The Beatles' Mad Day Out:  "They had recently recorded “Hey Jude” and so Paul is playing “Hey Jude,” and they’re all singing, and the parrot is just a prop that Paul’s girlfriend brought along. She was the prop girl. It was taken in the Mercury Theatre in Notting Hill."

I agree; they've always made me kind of uneasy. I wonder if anyone really likes them or if they are just being polite when they laugh at them?
Yeah, you never know what's going on behind the mask!
My cousin jean was a professional clown for years and I joke with her sometimes how scary she is without the makeup! Lol! She has a good sense of humor!

Speaking of Martha ;D, do you have any idea what the orchestra's doing out in the square?

Paul is rehearsing with The Black Dykes Mill Band, who recorded a song he wrote called Thingumybob:

http://youtu.be/CKSyUY3HxUA (http://youtu.be/CKSyUY3HxUA)

What happened later though is actually the most interesting part of the story.

Paul McCartney records Thingumybob by Black Dyke Mills Band (http://www.beatlesbible.com/1968/06/30/paul-mccartney-records-thingumybob-by-black-dyke-mills-band/)

"The newly published account by Gordon Mitchell whose family provided the hospitality to Paul McCartney and friends on that glorious summer evening now forty years ago, is still warmly remembered by both hosts and visitors. The events were reported prominently in the New Musical Express of July 6th and August 10th, 1968 and in subsequently published works by Derek Taylor, Alan Smith and Tony Bramwell." More Here (http://www.harrold.info/about/beatles.html)

How cool is that??

Thanks Kelly,
I had never heard the song, just read about it.

Hmmm, I wonder if any of our forum members can tell me which part Paul is playing?

I think Martha was very special to Paul because she was with him during the dissolution of the Beatles and also when he began to start a family. She was a companion to him and she was loyal to him when he didn't know who was really on his side. So she would have been very special and precious to him.

Great pictures. Some of these I haven't seen before.

I love Paul's bond with Martha. In pictures, you can really tell he sees her as part of his family. It's just how I felt about my old dog.

I really like that about him too. When I read something that makes him sound like a jerk (aka being human) I think of him and Martha, and also his kids.  :)
