Paul McCartney: Many Years From Now

Portada
Macmillan, 15 oct. 1998 - 696 páginas
Based on hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews undertaken over a period of five years by Barry Miles, and on complete access to McCartney's own archives, this is Paul McCartney in his own words. It is a history from the inside of one of the greatest song-writing partnerships of the century. It is the private life of a man made public property - a Beatle - by the age of twenty-one. It is the trajectory of the most popular pop group in history, from beginnings to break-up. At its centre, of course, is Paul McCartney's relationship with John Lennon - as friend, collaborator, as part of 'Lennon/McCartney" - two young guys from Liverpool who went on to change the world - and finally as bitter rivals in a struggle for the soul and the business control of the Beatles. McCartney recalls the genesis of every song he and Lennon wrote together and talks in fascinating detail about how they worked and who was responsible for which line, which melody.
