Paul McCartney Appears In The Final Issue Of The Dandy

He almost left it too late.

Apparently, as a young boy he was a fan of weekly children’s anthology humour comic that’s been running since 1938, and over the years many celebrities have appeared in the strips in both The Dandy and its sister comic, The Beano. He gave an interview with the NME in 1963 saying it was his life’s ambition to appear in the Dandy. But it never happened  So when he heard it was closing, he got in touch and offered his likeness rights… he wrote;
