"I have to admit I've been a Beatle maniac since the guys came to the U.S. in 1964. Last summer, when my wife and I were only a few rows and several security feet from the stage when Paul McCartney walked out, I was pinching myself. Was it really him, and was I really there? Well it was, and I was. He wasn't the same guy he was all those years ago, but he still had a lot of the same walk and mannerisms. And he came with all the lights, fireworks, and sound that anyone could expect. It was amazing! So, I couldn't resist painting the Fab Four again - with one of my cowboys and a lot of Chuck Middlekauff finishing touches. One of the touches is that Pizza Hut box. That's where my wife and I went on our first real date."
