George and Paul on stage in 1979
Pattie Boyd and Eric Clapton were married in Tucson, Arizona on the 27th of March 1979. A couple of months later, on May 19th, they held a wedding reception at their home in Hurtwood Edge, in England. For a long while, we had no photos from the famous «Beatles reunion» which took place at this wedding reception. Then in 2019, Zak Starkey posted this photo of himself on the guitar, Jim Capaldi behind the drums and Paul McCartney playing bass guitar.
We have had some of Linda McCartney’s photos from the occasion, with Paul, George, Ringo and Lonnie Donegan, but no other photos from the stage. But today, another photo showed up in our SoMe feed. Clearly taken seconds before or after the one Zak posted, we can also see George Harrison next to Paul.
This new photo was published in Pattie’s new book. According to reports from the occasion, some of the songs played were «Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band», «Get Back» and «Lawdy Miss Clawdy».
