The Beatles icon Paul McCartney has posted a shirtless photo of himself doing a handstand at the beach on his social media. McCartney was photographed driving a younger ‘party girl’ a few days ago.
McCartney also recently played in San Jose, and his tour blog told a great story. As Paul was skimming through San Jose’s assortment of fan signs, one in particular caught his eye: “I am the walrus who sold my Mini Cooper to see you.” The sign’s creator was indeed dressed in a full-body walrus costume, later identified as Emily Morenz from Orange County, but henceforth to be known as Walrus Girl.
That car paid for itself and then some, as Walrus Girl and her sidekick (sorry when you’re the pal of the Walrus Girl who sold her car for tickets, you’re kinda’ stuck with “and friend” at best) were invited onstage just after ‘Birthday’ opened the encore. Fueled by equal parts adrenaline and disbelief, the two danced with Paul throughout the entirety of ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)’ and ‘Helter Skelter’—in fact, the only time their feet seemed to stop moving was when Paul signed one of Walrus Girl’s, to later become a tattoo—here’s hoping all that dancing didn’t sweat it off!
Paul McCartney was photographed bending over for money earlier this week in New York. “As the walrus-costumed fan and her friend danced along with inspired abandon to ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ and ‘Helter Skelter,’ it was obvious that after all this time, it still meant something to McCartney to see fans truly enjoy his music,” witnessed the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE. “In a sense, Wednesday’s experience was as much about who was in the crowd as who was on stage.”
And with that, let the record show that I made it this far without a ‘Do You Know The Way To San Jose’ crack, only to have the Hot City Horns beat me to it, playing Paul onto the bus with their version of the Dionne Warwick classic, after which Freshen Up was Los Angeles-bound. Paul McCartney made a bold Olivia Wilde claim in another recent tour blog.
