“Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona for some California grass.”
There was speculation that the character of “JoJo” from The Beatles song “Get Back” was based on Joseph Melville See Jr., Linda McCartney’s first husband, and biological father of Heather Louise McCartney as he was from Tucson, Arizona. Paul McCartney denied this, explaining in his 1988 autobiography Many Years From Now, that he and Linda were on good terms with See Jr., who used the first name Melville, and that “JoJo” was “an imaginary character, half-man and half-woman.” I’m not buying it.
Linda Eastwood married See Jr. on June 18, 1962 and their daughter Heather Louise was born on December 31, 1962. Mrs. See was featured in an article published in the Arizona Daily Star on January 11, 1965 where she shared of all things, her meatloaf recipe. Here’s the photo from the article…
They divorced in June of 1965. See Jr. never remarried and he committed suicide with a self-inflicted gunshot wound on March 19, 2000, at his home in Tucson. This happened one week after he discovered that Linda’s entire estate, valued at over $220M was left to Paul McCartney.
