TODAY IN 1967
The Beatles held a press party at manager's Brian Epstein's house in London for the launch of the 'Sgt Pepper's' album. Linda Eastman was hired as the press photographer. They had met four days prior when Paul was at the Bag O'Nails night club, situated in the basement of 9 Kingly Street in Soho, London. The Beatles were regular visitors, particularly in 1967 and 1968, and McCartney had his own private table there.
The night I met Linda I was in the Bag O'Nails watching Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames play a great set. Speedy was banging away. She was there with the Animals, who she knew from photographing them in New York. They were sitting a couple of alcoves down, near the stage. The band had finished and they got up to either leave or go for a drink or a pee or something, and she passed our table. I was near the edge and stood up just as she was passing, blocking her exit. And so I said, 'Oh, sorry. Hi. How are you? How're you doing?' I introduced myself, and said, 'We're going on to another club after this, would you like to join us?'
That was my big pulling line! Well, I'd never used it before, of course, but it worked this time! It was a fairly slim chance but it worked. She said, 'Yes, okay, we'll go on. How shall we do it?' I forget how we did it. 'You come in our car' or whatever, and we all went on, the people I was with and the Animals, we went on to the Speakeasy.

So, I've had a borderline sick obsession with Rachael Leigh Cook since I was a very young lady. Babysitters Club? Strike? She's All That? The New Found Glory music video for 'Dressed To Kill'? I mean COME ON. She's the fucking cutest thing in the word, and I was always drawn to her because she played characters that were always awkward like me. The woman is a star. But, in most people's eyes, her real time to shine came when she stared as Josie in Josie & The Pussycats – easily, and shamelessly, one of my favourite movies. Not only is it fucking hilarious, but the music's great and it's so fun to look at! Visually, it is one of the best from the 2000's. And the fashion kills me; I remember as soon as I left the movie theatre after seeing it I pretty much ran out and got the 'Josie' hair-do the very next day. Arms raised high for the incredible costume designer, Leesa Evans – "She got her start on the set of 'Clueless'. Need we say more?" Here's why we will forever be CHANNELING Rachel Leigh Cook as Josie from Josie & The Pussycats!
