Summary
An illuminating look at the most tumultuous decade in the life of a rock icon--the only McCartney biography in decades based on firsthand interviews with the ex-Beatle himself. As the 1970s began, the Beatles ended, leaving Paul McCartney with only his wife Linda by his side. Holed up at his farmhouse in Scotland, he sank into a deep depression. To outsiders, he seemed like a man adrift--intimidated by his own fame, paralyzed by the choices that lay before him, cut loose from his musical moorings. But what appeared to be the sad finale of a glorious career was just the start of a remarkable second act. The product of a long series of one-on-one interviews with Scottish rock journalist Tom Doyle, this book chronicles McCartney's decade-long effort to escape the shadow of his past. From the bitter breakup of the Beatles to the wake-up call of John Lennon's murder, this is a revealing look at a sometimes frightening, often exhilarating period in the life of the world's most famous rock star.--From publisher description
