Paul McCartney wrote the following letter to Melody Maker, published in the Mailbag section of the magazine on this day.


PAUL WRITES TO THE MM

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.
