On this day, Paul McCartney attended a party thrown by folk singer Julie Felix at a Chelsea art studio. The two of them had a brief affair circa 1966, although they kept it secret since Paul was at the time ‘officially’ still in a relationship with his longtime girlfriend Jane Asher.

Paul McCartney was one of the guests at Julie Felix’s Chelsea party last weekend, to celebrate the release of her new Donovan-penned single “Saturday Night.” Others attending included Spencer Davis, Lulu, Simon Dee, Dave Cash, Kenny Lynch, David Frost, Mickie Most and actor Michael Caine. But Donovan didn’t turn up – he was busy taking sitar lessons from George Harrison!
