Default Fic: Tribute to a Friend

On what would have been John's 70th birthday, a particular poster appeared on the gates of Abbey Road studios among all the tributes for John left there. The creator of the poster claimed to be Paul. We don't really know but the handwriting looked pretty genuine. If it wasn't Paul, someone went to a lot of thought to copy his signature.
I'd post a pic but I don't know how. I wrote this story about what might have gone through Paul's mind to make such a sweet silent and private gesture.

Title; Tribute to a friend
Author: Kathryn O
rating; G (I know, I know)
Starring; Paul.
Summary; Paul celebrates John's 70th birthday in his own private way
Disclaimer: I have no idea who made that poster or left it there

A nice soul did show me how to post pics at Paul McCartney's website when I brought this topic up. Here is the thread with the photo of the mystery poster:

I actually never saw it (nor have I been to Europe yet). Someone posted the pic in my Beatles writers group on LJ and when I saw it wasn't being talked about anywhere else, I got her permission to repost about it in other places where it might be of interest. In the course of doing that, this fic was inspired.

You're right. If I was there, I would have at least THOUGHT about taking it with me. it looks like from the photo that Abbey Road was well aware of the deluge of graffitti they were going to have and covered the wall with brown paper. I'm not sure about that part and am only going by how that photo looks.

I've been to Abbey Road and put my name and that of a very good friend on the wall...they "whitewash" it every so often...trouble is the Floyd Fans are doing it as well now !!

I'm not surprised other band's fans are doing it too. I'm not into grafitti myself.
I wonder how long your name will be on that wall?
