Just fantastic (silent) footage of Paul, Jimmy, Thaddeus Richard (horn player) and Linda (with daughter Heather) outside the George V hotel the morning after a gig.

What happened to Jimmy's finger?


The film footage was taken the morning after their last gig in Paris. That night after returning to the hotel, Jimmy took a bath & slipped. Therefore breaking his finger. I have an interview which he talks about the incident which I will post below. I have also posted a couple photographs of Jimmy with his finger cast. The two people with JM in the second picture are a doctor & nurse. He's doing the V symbol in the first. Cheeky James!

Roy Leonard: This is the man whom Chicago had to wait about a month.

Jimmy: This is true. Unfortunately in Paris they have these marvel floors when you get out of the bath tub you tend to slip out of them.

Roy: Now that's the story that we read in the columns but I figured after the concert backstage we'd get the real story from Jimmy McCulloch.

Jimmy: Well the real story is, that night you know, we did the gig, got back to the hotel in the limos. I took a bath and uh that was it. The floor got wet and I went boop! bye! There you go. That's it. It's alright now, fortunately.

What do drugs have to do with Jimmy breaking his finger?

I think she meant that she's sad to see the drugs take over the man. The big picture, not just the fall.
