Stately Xanadu


Philly Boy Roy: You’re into Paul McCartney, right?
Tom Scharpling: Yeah I’m a big Paul McCartney fan.
PBR: Is it true that song “Jet” was originally called “Boat”?
TS: I’ve never heard that.
PBR: Roy Junior was telling me. He said that originally it was like “Boat! Doo-doo-doo-doo-doo! Boat!”
TS: And then he upgraded it to “Jet”?
PBR: Well he changed it to “Jet” because he thought it would get him free flights on Pan Am. Is that in any of your Beatles books?
TS: I’ve never heard that.
