70 Reasons Why Paul McCartney is the World’s Most Beautiful Person Inside and Out

30. The ‘Burned Vinyl’ Incident

Dear Art Dept.

I got a test pressing from the factory of our new album but they sent two single-sided discs, so I decided to stick them together. I got my super glue out, lined the two records up and stuck them, but I got it wrong and when I tried to play it the hole in the middle didn’t fit. I tried to pull it apart but the record broke, so I ended up throwing it on the fire. After about 5 minutes of vinyl-smoke filling the room I picked it up and threw the whole thing out into the garden.

Anyway, the next day I took some photos and I thought it might be a good idea to use the burnt record as part of your advertising campaign. Let me know what you think.

All the best,

Paul McCartney

Dear Paul

We got your idea and feel we may be able to work it in somewhere, but think that our campaign says it all.
