Another Guest Author Interview! This week Tom and Andy were joined by Dr. Richard Driver, Author of the new book That Was Me: Paul McCartney's Career and Legacy Of The Beatles.
Richard's book analyses The Beatles' impact culturally in America, and then Paul's trajectory throughout the 60s. The majority of his book is all about Paul Solo (which we all love since so many books are not written that way). We contextualise some of the Beatles impact during the 60s during our discussion which was quite fun. ("Popular Than Jesus"/"Two Virgins"/Drugs etc). Paul and his workaholic lifestyle as a coping mechanism. And of course discussion on Paul/Wings and the like. All fun stuff.
Richard is a 2nd generation fan who caught the Macca bug circa the Flaming Pie era. It was a very fun discussion and we really look forward to having Richard on again!
