Paul and Linda McCartney’s note to Nashville guitar picker Chet Atkins

Wings’ final lead guitarist Laurence Juber clarifies whether he really delivered a handwritten note from Paul and Linda McCartney to “Mister Guitar” himself, Chet Atkins. In the world of revolving Beatlemania, George Harrison repeatedly brandished a 1962 Chet Atkins “Country Gentleman” Gretsch hollow body electric guitar onstage. Meanwhile, anyone for a champagne glass filled with milkshake? In the aftermath of the Beatles’ acrimonious split in April 1970, a bearded, albeit very striking McCartney is seen sipping from two straws during a vacation with late wife Linda Eastman and kids Heather and Mary in the South of France.
