4.0 out of 5 stars A thoughtfull, engrossing about a living Legend, 24 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Paul McCartney: Many Years From Now (Hardcover)
I believe Many Years from now is one of the finest examples of high profile autobiography I have read last year. If you are a keen beatles fan (who isn't) this really as a must have as 95% of the book is about the whole sixties and how Macca remembers every song, album, event that shaped the beatles carrer and mtythology. He doesn't actually write it rather he gives his account in the form of interviews. The novel is split into about 7 or 8 chapters and a few examples are his childhood, then later Hamburg, The Cavern, The whole American experience, The Whole Drug experience, Sgt. Peeper, ect. One of my favourite chapter is called John were he describes the relationship he had then and how he remembers now. He talks very openly about the friendship, the breakup, the riverly and the love he had and has for John. The book dicusses practacally every song they wrote togther and influnces that shaped the song. it is and aborbing read with no beatles event overlooked. Its really a rememberence and it seems as Paul McCartney is finally at grips with his past and in this book he show us how hes came througth the wole experience still believing th at the love he took was equal to the love he made. Before I read this book I always believed McCartney to be a Iron willed, extremelly wealthy, 55yr old, egotistical genuis of pop when reading this book u see he has many strings to his bow and the overall message is "hey I was in The beatles too u'know" and we are left in no doubt of the fact but he does it with a grace, thoughtfullness and most emgrossing way that u can't poosibly not admire. A showman to the end. the Walrus really was Paul!
