Paul McCartney has written a tribute to Stan Lee of Marvel Comics, who passed away yesterday:
“A fond farewell to Stan Lee, of Marvel Comics. He will be sadly missed.
“I was lucky enough to meet him. He came over to my office and we sat around for a while chatting about comic books and my admiration for his work. Actually he was suggesting making a superhero who would wield a Hofner bass guitar. The guitar would have super powers and we spent some time imaging what those could be. He had a great sense of humour and I must say the idea of becoming a guitar wielding superhero in one of his comic books was very appealing.
“Sending love to his family and friends and always holding happy memories of this great man. Love ya, Stan!” – Paul
