McCartney: Yesterday-- and Today
Written with the cooperation of Paul McCartney, this is a dramatic story of one of the most popular songs in history and a unique close-up of the man who composed it. "Yesterday", recorded thirty years ago at the peak of the Beatles' triumphs, is the most recorded song of all time. An astonishing 2,500 different versions of McCartney's prized signature song have been made. Focusing on "Yesterday" and the era in which it was created, author Ray Coleman - who was close to the Beatles' story from the very beginning - draws a fresh new portrait of McCartney, then and now. In candid interviews, McCartney discusses his rich, often mercurial relationship with John Lennon, as well as a range of other subjects, including his life before and during the Beatles' heyday, and the powerful events that shaped his life.
