Beatles books have come in phases First was the authorized biography The Beatles by Hunter Davies published all the way back in 1968 before the group had even split There was a relative lack of written work on the band in the 1970 s Apparently many people were hoping that their story as a band wasn t over and a reunion would occur The scant handful of 70 s books seemed to take a sociological approach focusing on their impact on popular culture After John Lennon s murder in 1980 ended reunion hopes for good the floodgates opened and Beatle related books abounded in the 80 s including a new definitive band biography 1982 s Shout The Beatles in Their Generation by Philip Norman the gossipy insider tome The Love You Make by former Beatle assisstant Peter Brown and the first major biographical works on the individual band members Ray Coleman s 1985 doorstop Lennon Chet Flippo s glib YesterdayThe Beatles books of the 90 s and early 2000 s assumed everyone knew the story of the band and tended to be technical encyclopedic break downs of their live appearances recording sessions and euipment And now we ve come full circle with the basic story being laid down again with new research and perspectives for a new generation There has been a new band biography once again entitled simply The Beatles published by Bob Spitz in 2005 an excellent recent bio of John Lennon by Philip Norman again in 2008 and now two new McCartney biosThe first one published Paul McCartney A Life by Martin Ames is the slighter one laying out the basic story competently and succinctly focusing attention on the Beatle years which is the conundrum of any Beatle bio Yes these are the years that the casual reader would be the most interested in but this era has been written about time and time again Ames brings very little new to the table hereLike Norman s John Lennon The Life Howard Sounes heftier Fab does the experienced Beatle reader a favor and gives eual weight to McCartney s post sixties career including his wince inducing train wreck second marriage to former high class callgirl Heather Mills in the early 2000s Is the recording of Wings 1979 album Back To The Egg as fascinating as the recording of Sgt Pepper Probably not But I ve already read about the recording of Sgt Pepper 10000 timesSounes is a typical British journalist with all that implies impeccable prose and a clear taste for the salacious while pretending to be above such things He s not a particularly gifted music writer though and tends to inject his own opinions a little than necessary To his credit he interviewed over two hundred people for this book many of whom had never been interviewed before Most Beatle aficionados know about all the trouble they got into in the Philippines on their 1966 world tour by refusing to attend a state reception given by the evil dictatorial Marcos family Sounes actually interviews Imelda freakin Marcos about this snub Unfortunately she s kind of an idiot and offers no real insight But I appreciate the effort Interviews with former Wings members such as Denny Laine and Hugh McCracken add much to the taleFor all that does Sounes reveal anything about the McCartney personality that we didn t already know Not really Macca s a cheerful dedicated family man a driven businessman freuently kind and generous sometimes thoughtless and gauche militantly at times obnoxiously vegetarian with an overstuffed ego that few are brave enough to puncture Heard it all before but it s nice to have it set down in a meticulously researched work that can stand as the go to source for all things McCartney at least until the wheel turns again and the next generation gets their definitive biography

Keep in mind I am a HUGE Paul McCartney fan Ever since I first saw him on Ed Sullivan on February 1964 I became instantly hooked on the Beatles and fell in love with Paul Of course in my adolescent fickleness I switched to John for a few years I was attracted to his rebellious edge and angerhurt because they mirrored some on my own issues but then my fantasies returned to Paul I just finished Sounes biography last night I felt so sad when it ended that needed to look up a few old you tube videos of Paul to console and remind myself that Paul is everywhere and I can see videos of him whenever I wantsheesh I AM a case aren t IThis book was very well researched I liked that is was not approved by Paul and revealed him with all his weaknesses and uirks I really enjoyed learning about Linda and their family life They managed to create a sweet loving family in the midst of all that show bizrock n roll craziness They were great parents From day one I liked Linda Eastman and thought she was a fascinating creative and strong woman I am not a vegetarian but if anyone could convince me to be one it probably would have been Linda It did not take a trained psychologist to see that Paul was devastated by her loss It was hard watching Paul get mixed up with Heather Mills but I am impressed with Nancy Shevell and am glad he has found happiness again Paul is one of those dear men who needs a wife and I believe he s found another gemHowever I felt Phillip Norman s bio of John was a better biography Norman created a compassionate and intimate portrait of John than Sounes did of Paul I think Sounes was afraid of getting too close to his subject He clearly stated in his acknowledgements that he wanted to create an impartial biography which he did But John and Paul were very different characters John s woundedness can be uite compelling which is what made him such an intriguing character to write about He also met with a tragic and senseless end Paul is alive and well living life to the fullest is very good at getting what he wants and always lands on his feet so he draws less sympathy Overall it was well written and fully researched bio If you are a Beatles fan and especially a Paul fan this bio is a must read
