MISTAKEN FOR LENNON



SIR PAUL McCARTNEY's wife HEATHER MILLS reportedly exploded in rage at a passer-by in New York last week (ends07JAN05), after he mistook her husband for his late BEATLES bandmate JOHN LENNON.

The pair were strolling on Manhattan's East 57th Street when accosted by the teenage boy, according to PAGESIX.COM.

The boy yelled, "John Lennon! John Lennon," according to an onlooker, who adds, "Heather took it badly. She snapped back, 'No, you fool, he's dead,' before they walked away."

If someone called me John Lennon, I'd take that as a compliment.

Poor kid. He Probably just got really excited and said the wrong name. And what's with Heather's response? If I were Paul, I may have seriously considered decking her for that.

I have to agree Erin, I may not have decked her, but it would kinda hurt to have someone say something so harshly about someone who was that important to me. Sadness. Wonder why it upset her so much?

I feel sorry for the young guy too, I could see how that would happen, your not expecting to see one of the most famous people in the world walking down the street... I would say that was mighty low of Heather to make that kind of comment to a young impressionable person, I wonder how Paul responded while the Mrs; was having her tantrum?

I'm sure Paul takes being called by the wrong name all in stride. Pity that Heather didn't get a chuckle over it.

Jeez, I'm just amazed that any young'un these days can NAME a Beatle! (present company of teenage Beatle fans here on the Links excluded, of course ) You'd be surprised how many people can't even name one.

There's no need to have a second Beatle wife beater.

That story may be true, but it sounds too perfect for all the Heather bashers and tabloid headlines. Of course if it really did happen then a big frown for Heather

Like my friend who swore that Elton John was a Beatle, and that clearly I had no idea what I was talking about.

IF all of the facts in this article are true, then I think it was uncalled for by Heather to lash out at a teenager who was clearly excited over seeing a Beatle. How many teenagers can recognize an aging man as a Beatle and even knows the name of one of them? Not many (and I'm a teen myself). Obviously the teenager just got so shocked that he said the wrong name.

I agree. It's not completely unthinkable that someone would get them mixed up, if he didn't grow up with the Beatles and isn't a fan. I guess Heather was a little out of line, although she's only human too, it's possible for anyone to lose their temper. She could've been having a bad day, for all we know.

Well said, Dream. At least the kid KNOWS about the Beatles and was able to recognize Paul as being a former Beatle.

And Hari's Chick, I LOVE your suggestion of complimenting Heather for singing "Walking on Thin Ice." That made me so hard!

Like it was said earlier...

IF... all is as this article reported it...

Then Heather should keep her mouth shut. For me the bottom line is...

... if PAUL wasn't "offended" by this, then who the heck is SHE to react that way ? She's never even met John on top of it !

So if Paul can "take it", so should she !

I can even see him being a bit amused at this... and like others here have said, he probably gets that every once in a while...
