The original Tell Me Who He is was not recorded. It was only when Sir Paul (79) began to search his extensive archive in order to create a new book. The words can be scanned to find signs of Paul’s songwriting talent that led him to write The Beatles’ greatest hits with John Lennon. Bob Spitz, a Beatles biographer said that “discovering a Beatles song is like finding the Cleopatra sarcophagus on an archaeological dig.”
Paul and John had notebooks full of lyrics that were half-finished, sometimes even complete songs. The songs came so quickly and furiously in those early years that many were forgotten or left behind.
One can only imagine the number of Beatles-worthy songs that were sent to the trash. For any hint to the amazing past .”
This song will appear in Sir Paul’s The Lyrics, a book that focuses on 154 songs. It also includes handwritten lyrics sheets and unseen photos.
Inset: Sir Paul adds some insights to them. His comments were: “I am aware that many people like to keep a journal to remember the events of the day, but I don’t have such a notebook.” My songs are hundreds, and they serve the exact same purpose. These songs have spanned my whole life .”
November 2nd is the release of The PS75 Book.
