An intimate look at one of the greatest music legends of all time, by an iconic photojournalist. From the delirium of the Beatles’ 1964 U.S. tour to the heady, shaggy days of WINGS in the 1970s and the quiet idyll of life on the family farm in the early 1990s, Paul traces the evolution of a pop superstar and of the man himself through more than 100 photographs, many never seen before.
“To me, the photograph was taken backstage after a Wings concert in Tucson in 1976, Paul holding a glass of water was tired, but he’s happy, the performance had gone well… to me, the photo is Paul saying in a humble way, ‘I’ve just given my best to the audience a good performance tonight’…” Harry Benson
