Famous songwriter had long-ago Beatles connection
[Posted by Dave Haber on Wednesday, 03/18/09 7:27 am] [Full Blog] [Tweet] [Facebook]

We learn today that songwriter Jack Lawrence on Saturday at the age of 96. Jack's song "Tenderly" launched the career of Rosemary Clooney and he put Bobby Darin on the map with "Beyond the Sea." But Jack also had a very interesting small connection with the Beatles.


In a 1998 interview, Lawrence told how was asked by his friend and attorney Lee Eastman to write a song for his daughter Linda. Lawrence copyrighted the song "Linda" in 1944 and it went on to become a hit in 1947. Linda Eastman grew up to marry Paul McCartney.

Paul McCartney eventually bought the publishing rights to that song about his late wife, the song is now part of his MPL portfolio.
