A letter written by Paul McCartney is published in the Mailbag section of Melody Maker issued on this day.

Who does Paul McCartney think he is?

We don’t see anything of him for a year, and then out he pops from his mysterious hermit like existence, advertising his new record in a publicity-crazed manner. Does he really think we’ll believe he played all the instruments? Let’s face it Mailbag, we’re not suckers. It’s obvious George Martin had a lot to do with it. In fact, if you listen carefully to the end
of the third track played backwards, you can almost hear him whistling.

The Beatles Diary Volume 2: After The Break-Up 1970-2001

"An updated edition of the best-seller. The story of what happened to the band members, their families and friends after the 1970 break-up is brought right up to date. A fascinating and meticulous piece of Beatles scholarship."

We owe a lot to Keith Badman for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles after the break-up and how their stories intertwined together!
