Description
The product of a long series of interviews between Paul McCartney and Scottish rock journalist Tom Doyle, this book chronicles McCartney's decade-long effort to escape the shadow of his past, outrace his critics, and give his fans something unexpected. Sensing that he had nowhere to go but up, McCartney started over from scratch. Doyle follows McCartney inside the recording sessions for Wings' classic album Band on the Run, and provides context for some of the baffling misfires in his discography. From the bitter and painful breakup of the Beatles to the sobering wake-up call of John Lennon's murder, this is a revealing look at this sometimes frightening, often exhilarating period in McCartney's life.

"Tom Doyle's detailed chronicle, which includes rare interviews with McCartney and former Wings members, portrays a band that was far more contentious than eager-to-please hits like 1976's 'Let 'Em In' had us believe, fronted by a legend who wanted to be both boss and buddy. The book is larded with tales of Seventies rock-star excess, Paul and Linda's love of weed, docked paychecks, and grousing musicians."Rolling Stone
