Paul McCartney Meets a Girl from the Motor Trade

Paul's great love was Linda, for 29 years his faithful companion and music partner. Then, he got married ten years later to Heather Mills. We all know how well that turned out.

Now, one of our two remaining Beatles, a musical treasure, is nearly 69 years old, and has become engaged to Nancy Shevell, who's a bit younger and seems, by all accounts to be a fine person. She's a vice president of a motor freight company. She looks great, and doesn't appear to have an agenda.

Strange to think about Paul--one of my idols--as a 21-year-old moptop, then leader of Wings, musician and bassist for half a century, starting out on another life. Paul always looked like the "happy" Beatle, but it seems he has had his share of troubles. His face isn't the same (of course).

As a bassist inspired by him, I wish him well. It's a long and winding road. (sheesh--too corny?)
