The very nice Chained and Perfumed blogsite has posted a trip down memory lane in photographs to mark Paul McCartney’s 70th birthday this week.
Time magazine has released a hardcover special edition book called Paul McCartney: The Legend Rocks On that looks back on his career.
They’ve published an excerpt from the book that tells the story of when Lennon and McCartney first met (plus it contains heaps more links). And there’s a 70- photo collection of images here.
I have the paperback, magazine-version of this book, and it has some really interesting and cool facts & photos! For example, it has (in the section on the Shea concert,) a quote from Mick Jagger (Rolling Stones) saying that it (the audience-cheering) was “terrifying”! I got an American copy and don’t know if they have differences, but it’s a great book! I also enjoy your blog! I also have a Beatles blog (under construction) and a Rolling Stones blog. They’re http://www.essentialbeatles.wordpress.com and http://www.itsonlyrollingstones.wordpress.com. Thanks for all the great posts!
Hi Crazy Cole, I have to go out and see if I can find this Time Magazine special book here in Australia. As you say it does look like it is worth getting. Thanks for the link to your new Beatles blog. Looks like its is shaping up well. Thanks for the info in the “Wingspan” release. I didn’t know their were different country releases of this one with varying songlists. It is a bot like Paul’s “All The Best” which I wrote about here: https://beatlesblogger.com/2012/03/28/version-variations-you-didnt-know-about/
