"LIFE Paul McCartney" by LIFE Magazine

'LIFE Paul McCartney' by LIFE Magazine

★★★★ In the 50th Anniversary year of the Beatles' conquest of America, LIFE Magazine offers up this breezy photo-guide to the life and times of the most famous member of the Fab Four, Sir James Paul McCartney, MBE. It traces Macca's life, the beginnings of the Beatles, their subsequent fame & fortune and McCartney's post-Beatle career. The book is illustrated with vintage and contemporary b&w and color pix of McCartney, his wife and family, the Beatles, etc. It's a quick but fun remembrance of someone who has brought much happiness to music lovers of all ages.
