"I was told by Terry Jones (when I was researching Bert Fegg's book) that he himself had been told the "Wings" illustration for Paul McCartney was originally commissioned for the cover of a solo album by Paul's wife Linda under the project title of "Linda and the Red Stripes". Terry himself didn't know if that was 100% true though and MPL publishing never repiled to me on the subject but maybe someone else out there on the net might know?"
This interesting article Seaside Woman by Suzy and the Red Stripes explains:
"Paul called the group Suzy (Linda) and the Red Stripes (Wings) and they signed with Epic under that name. The name Red Stripes is from one of Paul and Linda's favorite drinks."
If you fancy a challenge or happen to know one of the richest musicians in the UK, and would like to share any further information, contact us.
Bill also mentions a drunken night with Dez Skinn, but as I've never met Dez (whose reputuation precedes him) I'd better not say anymore.
Message for Dez:
Dez could you contact us so we can ask for a few clarifications?
