In the same hour-long press conference in Tokyo on June 30, 1966 that I mentioned in my last post there was an important exchange between our Paul and a reporter that narrows down our Paul's true age and where he grew up. (Read the entire interview at: www.beatlesinterviews.org .) Here's what Paul said:
KEN GARY: "Would you pay two or three pounds to go and see people like yourselves and
that sort of music?"
PAUL: "Yes, if we like them. Yeah. I paid seventeen-and-six to see Bill Haley. I was
twelve. It broke me."
Bill Haley and his Comets first toured England from February 6-24, 1957. This would put Paul's year of birth at--most likely--1944 and an outside chance of 1945.
He said he paid 17 and 6 for the ticket and I am still trying to track down which city the ticket price would be from.
But we know that Paul was born in 1944 or 1945. An IMPORTANT clue!
