You Can't Say Christ Was A Flop

At the end of October 1969, Paul and Linda McCartney were ensconced in their farmhouse in Scotland, trying to enjoy a vacation while dealing with the fallout from the "Paul is dead" rumors. Unscheduled visits from a camera crew (see below) and reporters from Life magazine made things difficult for a while, at least until the Life story hit the stands on November 7th.

Meanwhile, George Harrison was working at Trident and Apple studios with artists such as Billy Preston and Doris Troy, while Ringo had begun recording his own solo album, Starrdust (eventually retitled Sentimental Journey) at EMI.

John and Yoko were still plugging the "Cold Turkey" single and Wedding Album; an interview with Kenny Everett was aired November 8th on BBC Radio 1's Everett Is Here. Here is another interview from the same time frame, with John and Yoko talking about their first meeting and the recent Rock And Roll Revival concert in Toronto.
