Paul McCartney was in the eye of the storm, Beatlemania, in 1964 when his group took over the world.
Now it seems he’s found a treasure trove of photos he took on a 35mm camera when it all happened. A book is coming called “Eyes of the Storm” on June 13th, five days before Sir Paul’s 81st birthday.
The photos were taken in six cities: New York, Washington, London, Liverpool, Miami, and Paris. There are 275 pictures. The book will have an introduction by Paul, plus essays by Jill Lepore and Nicholas Cullinan.
Paul is following the lead of his bandmate, Ringo Starr, who’s published several tomes of pictures, postcards and other Beatles memorabilia.
No price yet for the book. But Paul’s two volume “The Lyrics” sold for $150 last year and was a best seller.
