Chris Wallace, host of Fox News Sunday, has posted on his blog a moving and insightful essay about his experiences with Sir Paul McCartney.
On Saturday, August 1, 2009, Mr. Wallace was one in a crowd of about 20 people watching Paul McCartney do a “sound check” in a huge stadium, in preparation for a concert in Washington DC.
Mr. Wallace also met Sir Paul a couple of years back on a beach in Jamaica, and describes the thrill he felt at meeting a rock and roll idol from his youth. (When was the last time you were on vacation and met a former Beatle? Guess you should re-think your itinerary for next time.)
Mr. Wallace stirs up some sweet memories for those of us who grew up with the music and excitement of Beatlemania.
