    The Cleave Interview Series #2: Paul McCartney

    The Cleave Interview Series #2: Paul McCartney

    In the second episode of the Maureen Cleave Series, Diana and Duncan Driver explore Cleave's profile of Paul McCartney.

     Titled "How Does A Beatle Live" these exceptional interviews provide us with a rare glimpse into the world of the Beatles in 1966. 

    This fascinating interview vindicates Paul's portrayal in the book Many Years From Now. It captures McCartney when he is on top of the world: razor-sharp, opinionated,  witty, flirtatious, insatiably curious, and immersed in the counterculture and Avant-grade scene.
