I was at the library today and noticed two Beatles biogs in the sale rack - £1 each (that's about $1.5 USD). McCartney by Christopher Sandford and All Things Must Pass, a George Harrison biog by Marc Shapiro. They don't get great reviews on Amazon, but I figured they were worth a punt.

I just finished  Howard Sounes: Fab: An Intimate Life of Paul McCartney and I loved it!  Yes, it is unauthorized, but I thought it was written well showing both the good & bad sides to Paul (not that there is much bad, in my opinion!).  I would definately recommend it as a good read for any Paul fan :)

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

For info, my first edition ends with I Me Mine on page 294. The paperback closes with Real Love/Anthology overview on p383. There's quite a bit of new stuff altogether - roughly 30% more book, going on page numbers alone.

Damn, that is! I'll get the new version ASAP!

I managed to procure a copy of Many Years From Now last night and started it (I got as far as the end of the foreword before I fell asleep, :lol: ). I hope to dive into it in earnest this week. One weird thing a friend told me is that it ends in 1970 with the Beatles' breakup...that's not really a full-fledged biography, then, is it? More like a "setting the record straight on the Beatles years" memoir.

I'll see which edition it is...I'd like to read that if it's (hopefully) in there. 

It's the paperback, which mentions the tribute on the cover.
