Rod Stewart and the McCartneys at Lewisham Odeon

The Beatles played at Lewisham Odeon twice in 1963, but that wasn't Paul Mc Cartney's last time on the stage there.

In November 1974, The Faces with Rod Stewart played three nights at Lewisham Odeon. One night Paul and Linda McCartney came along to watch, the former having recently written the song 'Mine for Me' for Rod. So Rod called the two of them up on stage to sing along. Footage of the gig surfaces sporadically on youtube - here's a very poor image from it.

...and also a (watermarked) picture taken backstage at the Odeon


Anybody out there who was at this gig?

We were there that night. Got the tickets owing to cancellation, great night, so many years ago. Went with my wife and brother.

I was there with my mates. We were all 17. I wasn't a big Faces fan (became one later), preferred T Rex, but went because they all were mad keen on Faces. We were gobsmacked when Paul came on towards the end. Made my night. Even better than the night when Lee Brilleaux (Doctor Feelgood) swanned into the Roebuck in his white suit before their Lewisham gig to buy some fags. Nearly dropped our pints. :)
