Retro Ramblings: Paul McCartney To Play Fenway Park in Boston

Sir Paul is coming back to Boston this August. The very first concert I ever went to was “Wings Over America” on May 22, 1976. Paul McCartney had formed a band in 1971 called Wings and, on that day, they were playing at the Boston Garden. I was a senior in high school, graduating in a few weeks and was not sure what I was going to do after that. A few days after the concert, I saw an ad in the back of Rolling Stone magazine for Wings tour t-shirts, and I sent away for one. It was a great shirt and I thought to myself, “How hard could it be to screen print shirts and sell them from Rolling Stone?” I ran the idea by my best friend Kyle, who was in the Navy, and he loved it. Long story short, we started printing shirts when he got out and, I have to say, we did pretty well selling band shirts from the Rolling Stone classifieds…and beyond.

Thanks, Paul for coming to Boston in 1976 and I’ll be seeing you in August.
