And here's Paul, looking back on those years (quoted in Conversations with McCartney):
Thanks for this. It confirms most of the reading I did online yesterday about Paul's studio perfectionism wreaking all kinds of havoc in the group. I guess I'm inclined to forgive him for this to a certain extent, as opposed to the idea that he was just an all-around jerk.

Dick Smothers drove some sports car races in the 60's and 70's. Never F-1. I saw him at Sebring in '69 and he and his co driver finished top 10 in a Porsche. Not bad.

Cynthia said John slapped her once before they were married. I don't think that qualifies "occasional wife beater"... Paul was a shit, but also a thief (Graceland) when he needed a hit. So he goes to apartheid SF! Steals from Los Lobos and a country! And I still think the album sucks. How awful to hear african drumming with an added programmed computer keyboard fake snare drum noise to sound modern - how African of him!
