Remembering Lady McCartney
[Posted by Dave Haber on Wednesday, 09/24/08 7:27 pm] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

Today we remember Linda McCartney, who was born on this day in 1941.

On May 15, 1967, photographer Linda Eastman met Paul McCartney at a Georgie Fame concert at the Bag O'Nails club in London. She was in England on an assignment to take photographs of "Swinging Sixties" musicians in London. The two later went to the Speakeasy club on Margaret Street to see Procol Harum.

They met again four days later at the launch party for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band at Brian Epstein's house. When Linda's assignment was completed, she flew back to New York City. In May 1968, they met again in New York, as John Lennon and Paul McCartney were there to announce the formation of Apple Corps. That September, Paul phoned her and asked her to fly over to London. They were married six months later at a small civil ceremony at Marylebone Registry Office on March 12, 1969, witnessed by Mal Evans and Peter Brown.

Linda was the love of Paul McCartney's life, he taught her to play keyboards and she became a permanent part of Wings. She shared the Academy Award for Live and Let Die which they co-wrote, and she proved her musical abilty to the world by writing and performing Seaside Woman under the name Suzy and the Red Stripes in 1977. Exhibitions of Linda's photography are displayed in numerous galleries throughout the world, and her work is featured in several books.

She was taken from Paul on April 17, 1998. Her spirit lives on in the many charities she supported, and her line of vegetarian foods that still bears her name.
