Beginning a new study of our four Beatles, M.B.E. First, this month — Profile on Paul
Dawn James, Rave, August 1965
PAUL McCARTNEY sat astride an antique chair, the gold of it touching his well-styled suit. He looked at home, relaxed and confident. His neat face was in repose, but his eyes were watchful. I thought how beautifully arrogant he looked, like some enthroned king, assured of his position and the adulation of his fans. Paul has always been assured of love, yes. As a child, outside Liverpool, his face, with its round eyes, and his hair so clean and soft and brown, endeared him to old ladies and mothers.
