|Meeting Forthlin Road caretaker John Haliday|

On Thursday, the What Goes On Beatles news feed carried a story about John Haliday, the live-in caretaker of Paul McCartney's family home on Forthlin Road. I was able to show John Haliday in person this local article which he hadn't heard about, which was about the 10th anniversary of his living and working at Paul's house.
John very much enjoyed finding out from an American visitor to Forthlin Road about this new article that had just been published about him. Thank you Dave Haber and the What Goes On Beatles news!

John told me that when he recently visited Australia, dozens of people asked if he was Paul McCartney and said he looked and talked like him. Possibly living in a near replica of Paul's house and giving many tours of the house must somehow make John more Paulish.
Many of Paul's early Beatles Songs were written at his house on Forthlin Road. Yesterday was an extra busy day for John, he gave 6 tours yesterday, normally he only gives 4 tours a day.
