A work of unparalleled candor and splendorous beauty, The Lyrics celebrates the creative life and the musical genius of Paul McCartney through 154 of his most meaningful songs. From his early Liverpool days, through the historic decade of The Beatles, to Wings and his long solo career, The Lyrics pairs the definitive texts of 154 Paul McCartney songs with first-person commentaries on his life and music. Spanning two alphabetically arranged volumes, these commentaries reveal how the songs came to be and the people who inspired them: his devoted parents, Mary and Jim; his songwriting partner, John Lennon; his “Golden Earth Girl,” Linda Eastman; his wife, Nancy McCartney; and even Queen Elizabeth, among many others. Here are the origins of “Let It Be,” “Lovely Rita,” “Yesterday,” and “Mull of Kintyre,” as well as McCartney’s literary influences, including Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll, and Alan Durband, his high-school English teacher. With images from McCartney’s personal archives—handwritten texts, paintings, and photographs, hundreds previously unseen—The Lyrics, spanning sixty-four years, becomes the definitive literary and visual record of one of the greatest songwriters of all time.

Une rétrospective de la vie et de l’œuvre photographique de Linda McCartney. En 1966, alors qu’elle travaillait comme réceptionniste au siège du magazine Town and Country, Linda Eastman subtilisa un passe d’entrée pour journaliste et s’immisça à un concert promotionnel exclusif des Rolling Stones, à bord d’un yacht sur l’Hudson River. Les clichés spontanés et originaux qu’elle réalisa du groupe s’avérèrent bien meilleurs que les photographies formelles du photographe officiel du groupe, et elle se trouva très vite en position de devenir l’une des plus grandes photographes de l’âge du rock’n roll. Le 11 mai 1968, elle devint la première femme à avoir l’honneur de figurer en couverture du magazine Rolling Stone, avec la publication de son portrait d’Eric Clapton. Photographe privilégiée de la scène musicale de la fin des années 1960, elle fixa sur pellicule nombre de musiciens majeurs du rock, parmi lesquels Aretha Franklin, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Simon & Garfunkel, The Who, The Doors, et les Grateful Dead. En 1967, Linda se rendit à Londres pour photographier l’enthousiasme des “Swinging Sixties”, et y rencontra Paul McCartney au Bag ‘o Nails club, avant de photographier les Beatles au cours du lancement de leur album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Paul et Linda tombèrent amoureux, et se marièrent le 12 mars 1969. Au cours des trente années suivantes et jusqu’à sa mort à l’âge de 56 ans, elle se consacra à sa famille, à la promotion du mode de vie végétarien, aux droits des animaux, et à la photographie. De ses premiers portraits des grands noms du rock n’roll, et des dernières années des Beatles, en passant par les tournées qu’elle fit avec les Wings, jusqu’à l’éducation de ses quatre enfants avec Paul, Linda a immortalisé tout son univers sur pellicule. Ses clichés vont des clichés de famille pris sur le vif à des séances photos en studio avec Stevie Wonder et Michael Jackson, ainsi qu’avec les artistes Willem de Kooning et Gilbert et George. Constamment pleine de fraîcheur et de spontanéité, son œuvre dénote une chaleur et une intuition pour choisir le moment précis saisissant l’essence de n’importe quel sujet. Qu’il s’agisse de ses enfants, de célébrités, d’animaux ou des moments fugaces de la vie quotidienne, elle les photographia tous sans prétention ni artifice. Ce volume rétrospectif – une sélection brillante au sein de ses archives de plus de 200 000 images – a été réalisé en collaboration étroite avec Paul McCartney et leurs enfants. En tant que tel, il constitue un témoignage émouvant et marquant du talent de Linda.
