Happy Birthday Paul McCartney!
(18 June 1942)

"There’s nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter- and bleed."
On the train from New York City to Chattanooga, Tennessee, Elvis Presley listens to the acetate (gramophone record made from the master tape) of “Hound Dog,” “Don’t Be Cruel,” and “Any Way You Want Me,” and hears his music as his fans will hear it on a cheap record player, 1956
