Jokers, Smokers and Midnight Tokers #2


Paul McCartney explains to Japanese authorities that he was "just so high" when he packed 7.7 ounces of reefer in his luggage before arriving in Tokyo for his January 1980 Wings performances.

Darn, you bet me to this one. I'm trying to keep my McCartney-related posts to a minimum here.

I was just sorry there wasn't a better photo out there of Macca behind bars, or obviously in shackles. Your shot of the smiling stoner being greeted by the press is classic (I understand that he was actually quite troubled by it all).

Thanks for the Harrison pic sleeve parade; it brought lots of us great pleasure. Especially the imprt sleeves (well, imports to the US) -- they brought back many memories to a State Department brat.

Not as many great photos exist of that event as one might think. He would have been looking at a good stretch of time had been anyone but an ex-beatle.

Thanks a lot.
