Beatles Fans Get Reply From Paul McCartney Fifty Years Later

In 1963, Barbara Bezant and Lyn Phillips recorded a message to then Beatle Paul McCartney and sent the tape to a London theater where the band was playing. The tape, which ended up at a car boot sale in Great Yarmouth, was purchased by local historian David McDermott. Through a series of events, the two women were reunited recently and given a letter from their favorite Beatle 50 years later.

Although the women haven’t seen each other for 40 years, both still lived in Essex and were reunited recently to listen to the tape and also read the letter from Sir Paul. The note read: “Hi Linda and Barbara, thanks very much for your lovely tape. It finally got through, better late than never. Great to hear that you found each other after all these years. Keep enjoying the music. Love, Paul.”
