QUICK TAKES

McCartney's lost diary returned

May 14, 2003|From Reuters

Two Italian sisters who 20 years ago pilfered a diary belonging to Paul McCartney were rewarded this week with a face-to-face meeting with the ex-Beatle, Italian newspapers reported Tuesday.

Francesca and Paola De Fazi were 10 and 11 when they broke into a London house where McCartney had once lived. They found a diary from 1970 full of notes, drawings and doodles in McCartney's handwriting.

The sisters decided to give the diary back to McCartney while he was in Rome last weekend for two concerts. Diary in hand, they got past dozens of security staff at the star's hotel and finally got to meet their idol.

"He told us we had been naughty girls. But then he thanked us for giving it back and signed autographs," one sister said.
