October 8 Paul and Linda's Shadow Cycle
Sir Paul was in Italy this weekend, speaking as the guest of honor at the Castelli Animati animated film festival at Genzano, outside Rome. Sir Paul was there to present an animated film he produced with Italian-Argentinian director Oscar Grillo called Shadow Cycle. The film is based on a musical idea of his late wife Linda. During the event, Sir Paul disclosed that Linda had been totally taken in by the project and had begun working on the music without telling him. She died two years ago and was unable to finish the soundtrack. Now completed, it serves as yet another beautiful tribute to her memory.
