Program Description

Event Details

No less than the Guinness Book of World Records has proclaimed that Paul McCartney is the Most Successful Composer and Recording Artist of All-Time!  The road he traveled to get there wasn’t easy.  Paul was devastated when The Beatles broke up and struggled to move forward. There were missteps, but Paul hit his stride and was riding high by the end of the decade.  Using interview and performance video clips Professor Gary Wenstrup will trace the arc of Paul’s first post-Beatles decade from “Maybe I’m Amazed” and “Live and Let Die” to “Band on the Run” and “Listen To What The Man Said.” “Silly Love Songs” to some, but pop/rock masterpieces to most.  And, we’ll celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Paul’s first #1 solo single “Uncle Alpert/Admiral Halsey.

Our speaker will be presenting virtually through Zoom, not in the Library's event room.
