Conversations with McCartney
In Conversations with McCartney music journalist and music magazine editor Paul Du Noyer gives an interesting inside account of the career of music idol Paul McCartney. The book is not all interviews, but Du Noyer tells stories and shares a lot of what McCartney has to say in this biographical treatment. There were many chapters in McCartney’s career, starting with bands he played with before the Beatles, his meetings with other band members to become the Beatles, the life and times of the Beatles, the life and times of Wings, and his later career. Du Noyer fills the readers in on the details of these episodes and what Paul said to him about them. They were in contact for generations despite the changes in McCartney’s career.
The Beatles’ section could have been longer, but there are other books about them. McCartney was not as famous in his later career, but he still produced many famous love songs. John Lennon called him “the king of syrup,” but McCartney acknowledged that he was at times silly, but he pressed on to try to change the world. McCartney was versatile, prolific, and gifted. The music world is still lucky to have this living legend, even if one preferred the other Beatles band members.
