Lesley-Ann Jones – Fly Away Paul

Tuesday 14 May, 6:00pm-7:00pm
Fowey Town Hall

In this definitive account of Paul McCartney’s time in Wings, published on the 50th anniversary of the bestselling album, Band on the Run, music biographer, Lesley-Ann Jones, tells the extraordinary story of how Paul survived the Beatles and found his Wings. No comprehensive biography of the time he spent with Wings has ever been published. A period often dismissed as the ‘missing’ years; in fact, the band lasted for a decade, two years longer than the Beatles, and created such impact and influence that at one point they achieved the status of being the biggest live band in the world. Band on the Run sold over 6 million copies worldwide and became EMI’s biggest-selling album of the 1970s in the UK. Lesley-Ann has met McCartney many times and knew his late wife Linda, who played a crucial role in the evolution of Wings, knowing that Paul needed the band in the wake of the breakup of the Beatles. Drawing on extensive interviews and her trademark meticulous research, Lesley-Ann Jones will talk about how this period in Paul McCartney’s career was to become crucial, not only to his development as an artist, but to his very survival.

Lesley-Ann Jones is a bestselling biographer and broadcaster. She is the author of The Search for John Lennon; Bohemian Rhapsody: The Definitive Biography of Freddie Mercury; and Hero: David Bowie. A childhood friend of David Bowie, Lesley-Ann has interviewed many of the world’s most-loved artists, including Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney, Madonna, and Prince, often forming lifelong friendships with her subjects.
