Playboy: How did you hear of John’s death? What was your first reaction?
Paul: My manager rang me early in the morning. Linda was taking the kids to school.
Linda: I had driven the kids to school and I’d just come back in. Paul’s face, ugh, it was horrible—even now, when I think of it…
Paul: A bit grotty.
Linda: I knew something had happened…
Paul: It was just too crazy. We just said what everyone said; it was all blurred. It was the same as the Kennedy thing. The same horrific moment, you know. You couldn’t take it in. I can’t.
Linda: It put everybody in a daze for the rest of their life. It’ll never make sense.
Paul: I still haven’t taken it in. I don’t want to.
