Peter Ames Carlin returned to The Bob Edwards Show after publishing his book on “the cute Beatle” Paul McCartney: A Life. He spent another hour talking to Bob, and this time Chad Campbell was the producer charged with bringing this interview to life with musical clips. From the introduction:
According to Guiness World Records, Paul McCartney is the most successful musician and composer in the history of popular music with sixty gold records and 32 number one singles. “Yesterday” is the most covered song ever—thousands have recorded it. McCartney wrote sweet ballads and “silly love songs,” but he was also a rocker who drove those early Beatles hits. Now 67 years old, he continues to grow as a musician-writing film scores and classical and electronic music. And he’s one the world’s principal advocates for the welfare of animals. Sir Paul is the subject of a new biography by my guest today Peter Ames Carlin, who also has written an extensive biography of the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson.
