    He was quite a chameleon.

    Paul told Bono about it too. But that was a chance encounter, not like seeing a band you were later to join.

    Well, I'm just saying that they had likely met by that time.

    I heard Paul recently say (I think it was on the James Corden show) before the meeting at the Church Fete that he met him elsewhere and gave John his chocolate bar, as Paul said "not half but the whole thing".
    Is that accurate?

    I hope Paul’s next long player is called “Shoes” because that’s one hell of an album cover.

    Well, he could release some unreleased stuff and call it 'Boots' ...

    This was a special "going-away" performance for The Beatles Fan Club before The Beatles headed off to Hamburg. For nostalgia sake, The Beatles started the show in their leathers. After a break, they changed into their suits.

    Paul in specs... Rory Storm, and maybe John on Paul’s left?

    (first attempt posting a pic, hope it works!)

    I believe that is Rory's sister, Iris, who dated Paul and George on the bottom right

    As I recall it was John sharing half his chocolate bar with Paul, I can picture Paul being really impressed with that :)

    And I think this is a third hand story from Matt Damon, from Paul to Bono to Matt? Has Paul talked about this anywhere?

    Bootle may be a subdivision of Liverpool or possibly the next town over.

    A good example of Paul "posing with glasses", see his demonstrative finger! (George is to Rory's left too)

    Bootle is a separate town to the north of the city of Liverpool which has been in the metropolitan Liverpool area since 1974. Until 1974 the local police was "Liverpool & Bootle constabulary" but since 1974, "Merseyside Police".
