James discusses his career and writing and why he chose to tackle and analyse one of The Beatles most celebrated songs. Beatles historical context, Paul as a writer during this time and the legacy of 'Hey Jude' some 50+ years later and why the song has such "emotional currency." Tom and Andy definitely agree. We think you will too! Thanks to James and his agent for arranging this interview and we look forward to seeing it succeed!
