Author(s): The Editors of Life
The editors who produced the hot-selling commemoratives of the Beatles, John Lennon, George Harrison and the massive volume of Robert Whitaker's Beatles photography continue their vastly successful series of books on the Beatles by paying tribute to Sir Paul. He has been the world's biggest star for a half century, and LIFE was there when he first came on the scene, and following. This volume will feature exclusive, rarely seen photography and commentary by Harry Benson, who shot the lads' pillow fight in Paris in 1963, Paul and Linda on the farm after the break-up of the Beatles, and much more. Also included will be a enjoyable report on Paul today by John Pizzarelli, the esteemed jazz guitarist recruited by Sir Paul for the 2012 "Kisses on the Bottom" recording.
The editors at LIFE vigorously carry on the traditions of excellence in photography, journalism and storytelling of and about our country and our world, which began with the founding of LIFE magazine in 1936 by editor and publisher Henry R. Luce. LIFE has published books on a broad range of subjects, including "New York Times" best-sellers "One Nation" and "The American Journey of Barack Obama."
