Apple To The Corps

Paul McCartney owns the René Magritte painting Le Jeu de Morre (The Game of Mora), which became the inspiration behind The Beatles’ Apple Corps logo

 

In my garden at Cavendish Avenue, which was a 100-year-old house I’d bought, Robert [Fraser] was a frequent visitor. One day he got hold of a Magritte he thought I’d love. Being Robert, he would just get it and bring it. I was out in the garden with some friends. I think I was filming Mary Hopkin with a film crew, just getting her to sing live in the garden, with bees and flies buzzing around, high summer. We were in the long grass, very beautiful, very country-like. We were out in the garden and Robert didn’t want to interrupt, so when we went back in the big door from the garden to the living room, there on the table he’d just propped up this little Magritte. It was of a green apple. That became the basis of the Apple logo. Across the painting Magritte had written in that beautiful handwriting of his ‘Au Revoir’. And Robert had split. I thought that was the coolest thing anyone’s ever done with me. When I saw it, I just thought: ‘Robert’. Nobody else could have done that. Of course we’d settle the bill later. He wouldn’t hit me with a bill.‘ [ITP 20: Le Jeu de Morre by Rene Magritte, 1966; the Apple Corp. Logo, 1967]

This Guy Was In The Beatles

Paul McCartney
MetLife Stadium
August 7th, 2016

This guy was in the Beatles.  Let me rephrase that…

THIS FCUKING GUY WAS IN THE FCUKING BEATLES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You should probably go see him if you haven’t, cause he was in The Beatles.  This was my 3rd time seeing this guy who was in The Beatles, but wish it was my 3,3333,333333333th time  Dumb me  

What’s really nice of this guy from the Beatles is how this tour’s setlist is varied from the previous tour’s setlist, when I last saw the Beatles guy tour, so I’ve been SOOOO blessed to hear SOOO many Beatles songs sung live by a Beatle (and also happy not hear ‘The Long and Winding Road’ again).  And you know what, this Beatles’ post-Beatle output is pretty fcuking prolific too.  And on this tour, he even dug up some deep deep deep cuts! Like TEMPORARY SECRETARY!!

McCartney breaking out the deep cuts like 'Temporary Secretary', but what about 'Spies Like Us'????

Time is not eternal.  Paul is alive, but won’t always be.  One day ‘Paul Is Dead’ will ring true, and then none of us will be able to see and hear this Beatle perform live.  I don’t even want think about it. A world without this Beatle?? I only want to think about seeing this Beatle again.  And again.  AND AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
