Fünf Grammys, elf Mal als Solokünstler in den deutschen Album-Top Ten und Autor von über eintausend Songs – Paul McCartneys Karriere ist in jeder Hinsicht von Superlativen geprägt. Nun schreibt der renommierte Rock-Biograf Philip Norman seine Geschichte auf – erstmals mit McCartneys Einverständnis und unter Einbezug von Freunden und Familie. So entsteht ein kenntnisreiches Portrait von Pauls oftmals nicht ganz einfachen Beziehung zu John Lennon, der tragischen Zeit nach der Auflösung der Beatles und des Kampfs zurück in den Pop-Olymp mit den Wings, der fast dazu geführt hätte, dass McCartney in Afrika ermordet worden wäre. Norman legt hier mit bisher unveröffentlichten Details und kritischen Erkenntnissen die umfassende Biografie einer der größten musikalischen Legenden unserer Zeit vor.

Was für ein Leben! Mit den Beatles hat er sich für alle Zeiten in der Musikgeschichte unsterblich gemacht und begeistert bis heute Millionen Fans. Bereits 50 Jahre ist es her, dass er erstmals 1960 in Hamburg auf der Bühne stand. Sir James Paul McCartney kann auf ein bewegtes Leben voller Erfolge, aber auch auf Tragödien und Niederlagen zurückblicken. Der englische Musiker, Singer-Songwriter, Maler und Komponist wurde weltweit bekannt als Sänger und Bassist der Beatles, für die er neben John Lennon die meisten Stücke schrieb. Lennon/McCartney gilt als das erfolgreichste Komponisten-Duo in der Geschichte der Popmusik. Nach dem Ende der Beatles startete McCartney eine erfolgreiche Solokarriere und gründete mit seiner Ehefrau Linda die Wings. Seit den 1980er Jahren arbeitet er ausschließlich als Solokünstler. McCartney gilt heut als der erfolgreichste lebende Pop-Komponist überhaupt, sein legendäres "Yesterday" ist der meistgespielte Popsong aller Zeiten. McCartney lebt streng vegetarisch und engagiert sich in vielen Bereichen, auch für die Rechte von Tieren. Seine gesamte Lebensgeschichte wird in diesem Buch hautnah sehr lebendig erzählt. Ende 2009 trat Paul McCartney mit seiner Band im Rahmen seiner Welttournee auch in Deutschland auf. Für 2010 plante er eine fulminante Abschiedstournee. Die Auftritte sollten an Orten stattfinden, an denen der Ex-Beatle noch nie gespielt hat, etwa am Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin oder auf dem Platz des Himmlischen Friedens in Peking.

"The Words and Music of Paul McCartney: The Solo Years" examines the large and varied oeuvre of this deeply personal artist, showing how McCartney's stint as a Beatle continues to inform his solo music, as well as how he has transcended his days as a member of the Fab Four. After a biographical introduction, chronologically arranged chapters explore McCartney's music in the immediate aftermath of the breakup of the Beatles, his work with Wings during the 1970s, his collaborations with other artists during the 1980s, and his compositions of the 1990s, including his first forays into classical music. The examination also covers McCartney's critically acclaimed work in the first decade of the 21st century, including "Memory Almost Full" and "Ecce Cor Meum," a composition written in the style of sacred English choral music. Throughout, the book supplies analytical insights and historical background to a repertoire that, surprisingly, has not previously been covered in detail.

From the acclaimed biographer who brought you the rock biography of Bruce Springsteen comes the life of musician Paul McCartney—from his groundbreaking years with the Beatles to Wings to his work as a solo artist and activist. More than a rock star, more than a celebrity, Paul McCartney is a cultural touchstone who helped transform popular music as one half of the legendary Lennon-McCartney songwriting duo. In this definitive biography, Peter Ames Carlin examines McCartney’s entire life, casting new light not just on the Beatles era but also on his years with Wings and his thirty-year relationship with his first wife, Linda McCartney. He takes us on a journey through a tumultuous couple of decades in which Paul struck out on his own as a solo artist, reached the top of the charts with a new band, and once again drew hundreds of thousands of screaming fans to his concerts. Carlin presents McCartney as a musical visionary but also as a layered and conflicted figure as haunted by his own legacy—and particularly his relationship with John Lennon—as he was inspired by it. Built on years of research and fresh, revealing interviews with friends, bandmates, and collaborators spanning McCartney’s entire life, Carlin’s lively biography captures the many faces of the living legend.
