Advent Day 8: Man on the Run

MAN ON THE RUN – Tom Doyle

This is a book drawn from long interviews with Paul McCartney, focusing on his strange career in the Seventies – a decade in which he tried to play down his fame, start it all again, and wound up once more mega-successful. It’s quite surprisingly unguarded, I thought. And the description of Lennon and McCartney’s last evening together in New York – watching Saturday Night Live and daring each other to rush downtown to the studio and suddenly announce a reunion, but deciding they were too wasted – is worth the cover price alone.
