About

Paul McCartney (joined by his wife Linda) flew to Munich in Germany to attend the “Bambi Awards” and to receive a “Lifetime Achievement Award” award, from the West German football legend Franz Beckenbauer. They returned to England immediately following the ceremony. The awards were televised on the ZDF network a couple of days later.

From Wikipedia:

The Bambi, often simply called the Bambi Award and stylised as BAMBI, are presented annually by Hubert Burda Media to recognize excellence in international media and television, awarded to personalities in the media, arts, culture, sports and other fields “with vision and creativity who affected and inspired the German public that year,” both domestic and foreign. First held in 1948, they are the oldest media awards in Germany. The award is named after Felix Salten’s book Bambi, A Life in the Woods and its statuettes are in the shape of the novel’s titular fawn character. They were originally made of porcelain, until 1958 when the organizers switched to using gold, with the casting done by the art casting workshop of Ernst Strassacker in Süßen.

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!
