Virtual: Paul McCartney -- The Solo Years
Thursday, May 25, 2023
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 we’ll 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 Says.” “Silly Love Songs” to some, but pop/rock masterpieces to most.
Led by Gary Wenstrup, who has taught courses on the Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel and Motown Records for the Continuing Education Departments of College of DuPage and Oakton (IL) Community College. Wenstrup has lectured at over 80 public libraries. Besides being featured on radio broadcasts and in newspaper articles, he is also a reoccurring guest on the widely respected podcast “Something About The Beatles.”
