Paul McCartney and his bride-to-be have posted a notice of intention to marry at London’s famed Marylebone Register Office, which has hosted many high-profile weddings in the past. McCartney married his first wife, Linda, over 40 years ago in the same venue
According to the Westminster Council, the notice was posted Wednesday (Sept. 14), which means that the couple can wed anytime after September 30. They have a year to hold the ceremony. The notice lists the couple’s address as McCartney’s London residency and describes the singer as a “business executive.”
“Lots of couples get married here because of the venue’s reputation as a rock ‘n’ roll place to tie the knot and this ceremony will certainly continue that legacy,” says Alison Cathcart, Westminster City Council’s registrar.
This will be the former Beatles third marriage. McCartney, 69, was first married to Linda (Eastman), who died in 1998 at the age of 56 after battling cancer. The two were married for 30 years and have three children together. His second marriage to Heather Mills in 2002 came to a well publized end after six years.
Previous weddings at the century-old town hall include Ringo Starr and Oasis singer Liam Gallagher.
A new exhibition titled ‘Living In The Material World,’ that explores the life of George Harrison will premiere at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles, California on October 11, one week after the HBO broadcast debut of Martin Scorsese’s film of the same name.
This is the first major exhibit to honor 12-time Grammy award winner Beatle George. The Grammy Museum has full cooperation with the Harrison Estate, so it promised to be amazing.
Both the exhibit and the film will explore the extraordinary life and career of Harrison. An intense and intimate look at “the quiet one” will take the viewer on a voyage that is mystical, musical, spiritual and profoundly George.
Most of the footage in the documentary has never been seen or heard before, with much being told in the words of Harrison himself. A slew of family and friends have also contributed, sharing their memories of this spirited seeker whose artistic talents continue to shine brightly, here, there and everywhere.
New documents prove that The Beatles declined to play to a “segregated crowd” during their USA tour in 1965. A contract and rider that was drawn up prior to their performance at the Cow Palace in Daly City, Calif. is now up for auction.
The contract and tour rider for the show is being sold via Nate D. Sanders Auctions. The gig went down August 31, 1965, the year before the band stopped touring to focus on studio recordings. In addition to indicating the Beatles refused to perform to a crowd in which black and white fans were kept apart, the documents detail the fee the band collected for the gig ($40,000) and the number of police officers required to keep order at the show (at least 150 uniformed).
On a lighter note, it’s also documented that Ringo Starr would need a special platform for his drum kit and the size (10′ by 6′ and 4′ high). Ticket prices for the show ranged from $4.50 to $6.50, including tax. .
The documents are currently going for $1,100, and the auction closes September 20th at 5 p.m. PT..
