Found out today that Tom was giving a talk on Paul and this book 10 days ago not too far away from me. Not amused to find i missed it. £10 to see him and you got a free buffet. blue-meanie

I was reading through this thread thinking it was a recent one……..

Billy R was making sense earlier about John’s commitment to AR. I was thinking how similar to Sgt Pepper ……..Although John’s songs are very strong on SP there’s that hint of desperation for some kind of muse for our lazy Nowhere Man ……..’Need a song What’s on TV……I’ll write about cornflakes………Shit need another……..’Oooo nice painting Julian what’s it called?’

‘Bugger, Paul’s after more………Great poster….that’s me lyrics done and dusted.’

‘Paul’s coming on strong……..I’d better get my finger out here…….What’s in the bloody newspaper?’

 

I think it was NZBeatlefan that said it all……..John had a smaller palette of musical skills to draw upon than Paul certainly……. and perhaps George as well……But no one made more of what he had than John.

I bought this with a gift card for my birthday, and i just noticed that the USA version (which I bought) is 16 pages shorter. Has it been abridged for the US audience, or is it a difference in page size?

It shortened it by sixteen pages when they removed all the extra U’s.
