JB, I was thinking about that yesterday, while watching another animated video by Alvaortega for The Beatles' "Dear Prudence" song. It's very cool that you are friends with Mia, and she spent time in India with the Fab Four and others, and her sister is the "Prudence" of "Dear Prudence"!!

I imagine, even given the life she has led and the people she has known, that must be cool for Mia. Also cool that you can go "Me-Mia-Frank Sinatra" and, well, a whole score of world famous people!!

Here is some info I found about the creation of the song, and Jack meeting Paul...

"...Then around the corner came Paul. “‘Ello Jack, nice to meet you.” Jack gave Paul and Linda the drawing which they thought was “smashing.” Paul thanked Jack for keeping him from going bonkers while they were recording the album in Jamaica. It seems that there was very little to do there, and they needed to keep their kids entertained. Luckily, there was a store that sold comics, so Paul would go and pick up all the latest. One night the song “Magneto and Titanium Man” popped into his head. The thing about Jack was that within a few minutes you felt as if you were best friends, so Paul too was soon laughing it up with Jack as if he had known him for years..."

For fun, I decided to ink and color the drawing Jack Kirby did as a gift to Paul and Linda in honor of the song...

Wow, this is crazy. I never knew Paul and Jack had met and interacted so much.

Phillippe, didn't you know? At his age, Paul McCartney knows everyone. I had him over for tea about six years ago.

According to a site I found, the reason Jack drew Paul and Linda wearing top hats and such is based on this photo:
