    schema:description "Full of extraordinary revelations, McCartney is a revealing tale of self-destruction, violence and epic excess. Between 1963 and 1970, Paul McCartney did the following: Sold 160 million albums, scored 25 number one singles, captured the whole thing in A Hard Day's Night, experimented with drugs, offended the church, established the concept of rock-as-art with Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, persuaded millions of kids to pick up electric guitars, single-handedly invented the Swinging Sixties and became one of the most famous Englishmen alive. The Beatles' bloody in-fighting, the sex, the drugs, and McCartney's extraordinary marriages are here revealed in full. Yet while the revelations will genuinely astound, this book remains a celebratory feast for his millions of fans, capturing the glorious rush of the best songs and revealing the untold stories behind them. Paul McCartney is the definitive biography, charting not only the pop legend, but also the man and his era."@en ;
