“On board the Royal Iris just before the boys performed on the all-night Riverboat Shuffle. They’re in the second-best dressing room - Acker Bilk had the star’s room - behind the captain’s bridge.
We’d heard of something called a ouija board. We knew you turned a glass upside down on a table and somehow it would connect you to the supernatural. So the boys held each other’s wrists to create a magic circle. The only thing we didn’t know was that you had to put your hand on the glass!
An interesting question: Where’s Pete Best? He’d probably wandered off somewhere because he never completely jelled with the others. Most likely he was with some beautiful girl below deck. Poor Pete!” - Mike McCartney, Remember
I scanned this photo of John and Paul from a very large poster that came with one of the Club Sandwich issues. Do you think it might be from the trip John and Paul took to Paris in 1961 for John’s birthday?
Looks like it. Jürgen Vollmer said that when he met up with John and Paul, he took them to a flea market and they both bought themselves new jackets - Paul got a “dark artist’s jacket” and John bought a green corduroy jacket. So yeah, this looks definitely like it.
A comb? You think a comb is going to help? Are you kidding me?
