Synopsis: Based on hundreds of hours of interviews with Barry Miles, and complete access to McCartney's archives, this is Paul McCartney in his own words. It covers his life with the Beatles, the music, the drugs, the women, the Maharashi, the love, the peace, and also his relationship with John Lennon.
Review: As the first full account of the Beatle years by a Beatle, Many Years from Now is unique. This is J Paul McCartney's story--as told to Miles--of life right at the epicentre of the 1960s hurricane. Covering the glory years, the 600-odd pages offer a first-hand, insider's account of the most influential and widely-imitated band of all time, making this a fascinating fly-on-the-wall chronicle.
Miles is good at putting McCartney's memoirs into context, but it's the material from the horse's mouth which is really revealing. We learn how the teenage Macca fantasised about a future as "a Catholic lorry driver. Very simple life, a firm faith and a place to go in my nice lorry"; and of his realisation that National Service, had it continued for just a few more weeks, would have left the Beatles stillborn: "Ringo and John being the oldest would have had to go, followed shortly by me and then a year later by George, and that would have split any chance of being a group".
But perhaps most rewarding of all are the stories behind the music forged by the Lennon & McCartney partnership, including Paul's memories of driving down to see John at his Weybridge mansion, where together they would fashion the songs that will be sung for all time. --Patrick Humphries
