LIVERPOOL - Sir Paul McCartney flew into his home town of Liverpool to visit the Magical Mystery Strawberry Rain Museum which houses hundreds of Beatles memorabilia, relics, and artifacts.
McCartney had heard about the museum being broken into on March 4 and he wanted to visit it and speak with the curator Bickerton T. Feathestone.
Mr. Featherstone provided Sir Paul with a list of the items that had been stolen. One of the items had once belonged to Paul. It was the very first 'black book' that he ever owned.
The book was filled with over a hundred names, addresses, and phone numbers of girls that Paul had dated. Some of the more well known names included Jane Asher, Marianne Faithfull, Cilla Black, Lulu, Petula Clark, and Amiguita "Eleanor" Rigby.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: Amiguita "Eleanor" Rigby was the girl who inspired McCartney to write the Beatles hit "Michelle."]
McCartney told Featherstone that altough he could not replace the 'black book,' he did want to offer to the museum some other personal items from his days with the Beatles.
Paul gave him the #2 yellow pencil he had used when he wrote the lyrics to the song "Twist And Shout." He also gave the museum his personally autographed copy of Ringo Starr's autobiography entitled Me Blimey Bloomin' Life In Me Bloody Gobsmacked Yellow Submarine.
The museum will also be receiving an old Good Year blimp that McCartney had purchased back in 1977, for £7,000 [$11,244 U.S.].
