When the most successful pop group in the world disbanded in 1970, its four members went in radically different directions, and none was more successful than Paul McCartney. Free at last to take control of his own songwriting, McCartney used his new group, Wings, to produce popular, classy music, most notably the Band on the Run album. Since those early days of freedom, McCartney has established himself as one of the most creative artists of his generation. With projects ranging from the soundtrack to the movie Give My Regards to Broad Street to the more recent, critically acclaimed show Liverpool Oratorio, he has also proved that his talents transcend what John Lennon once sardonically called "granny music." Celebrating McCartney's four decades of unparalleled success, this book is a multifaceted account of a world-class talent.
