Growing Up With Paul (talk)

Another Spyboy presentation for today's blog - this one an intimate and illuminating talk by Paul McCartney’s brother, Mike McGear. 

McGear's show, Growing Up With Paul will be on at the Underground Theatre, Eastbourne on Sunday 13th April. Mike will talk his audience through his family album, with wonderful and humorous stories of Liverpool life from childhood to entering showbiz, when because of Beatlemania, he had to change his name to McGear. Hear about his time with Roger McGough and the Scaffold, how Rod Stewart woke his relatives and how Jimi Hendrix became Mike's backing musician! Learn why George Harrison pinched Joe Brown's guitar! And why Billy Connolly had to separate Mike from Michael Parkinson?

Under Ground Theatre, Sun 13th Apr, 19:30.
Tickets £17.50 and ONLY available by calling Hailsham Pavilion on 01323 841414.
