1On the RunYour first solo album, McCartney You recorded that at home, in secret, in the midst of all of your wrangles with the Beatles.Yeah It was really kind of therapy through hell It was one of the worst times of my life.He knew he was in trouble the morning he couldnt lift his head off the pillow He awoke facedown, his skull feeling like a useless dead weight A dark thought flashed through his mind if he couldnt make the effort to pull himself up, hed suffocate right there and then.Somehow, as if it was the hardest thing hed ever done, he summoned the energy to move He flipped over onto his back and thought, Jesus that was a bit near.Day by day, week by week, his condition had been steadily worsening His often sleepless nights were spent shaking with anxiety, while his days, which he was finding harder and harder to make it through, were characterized by heavy drinking and self sedation with marijuana He found himself chain smoking his unfiltered, lung blackening Senior Service cigarettes one after another after another.Later, he would look back on this period and tell everyone that hed almost had a nervous breakdown From the outside, there appeared to be no almost about it.For the first time in his life, he felt utterly worthless Everything he had been since the age of fifteen had been wrapped up in the band Now, even though he couldnt tell the world, that period of his life was almost certainly over.It was as if hed suddenly and unexpectedly lost his job, been made entirely redundant He was twenty seven and of no use to anyone any Even the money hed earned up to this point was no comfort, made no real difference This was an identity crisis in extremis who exactly was he if he wasnt Beatle Paul McCartney On the mornings when he forced himself to rise, hed sit on the edge of his bed for a while before defeatedly crawling back under the covers When he did get out of bed hed reach straight for the whiskey, his drinking creeping earlier and earlier into the day By three in the afternoon, he was usually out of it.I hit the bottle, he admits I hit the substances.He was eaten up with angerat himself, at the outside world He could describe it only as a barreling, empty feeling rolling across his soul.Out of work and with nothing to distract him, he was tormented by ghosts from his past they would rise up, whispering in his head, telling him that, in spite of everything hed achieved, they knew hed never really amount to anything That he should have found a proper job in the first place, just as theyd always said.He realized that up until this point hed been a cocky sod And now there was this the first serious blow to his confidence hed ever experienced Even when he was fourteen and the complications from a mastectomy had suddenly taken his mothers life, he had understood that this horrific event had been beyond his control Somehow, now, in the depths of his muddied thinking, he was starting to believe that everything that was happening was nobodys fault but his own.His wife of less than a year later said she had felt the situation was frightening beyond belief Within a matter of months, her new partner had gone from being a sparky, driven, world famous rock star to a broken man who didnt want to set foot out of their bedroom But even if Linda was scared, she knew she couldnt give up on Paul She recognized that her husband was sinking into emotional quicksand, and she knew that it was down to her alone to pull him out before he went under for good.Linda saved me, he says And it was all done in a sort of domestic setting.It had been two years since theyd first met, at the Bag O Nails nightclub in Soho, four days later being seen deep in conversation at the press launch for Sgt Pepper It was only a year since theyd managed to float unnoticed together through the streets of New York where, in Chinatown, he had comically tried to pull her into a temple offering Buddhist weddings before flying from coast to coast, landing in Los Angeles and disappearing for days into a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel It was still only six months since theyd giggled their way through their wedding ceremony at Marylebone registry office in London, amid a fog of seething female jealousy that seemed to spread across the world.He had been the last single Beatle, the one seen about town, haunting the clubs and hanging with the artsy crowd She was the American single mother divorce who had earned some renown as a rock photographer and who had apparently had flings with Mick Jagger and Jim Morrison To Paul, Linda appeared deeper than the frothy, starry eyed girls who tended to flock around him, less buttoned up than his then paramour, the actress Jane Asher.Linda would take Paul out on long drives, saying, Lets get lost in her drawly, spacey way, showing him a new kind of freedom She had surprised him by telling him, I could make you a nice home.Now it was the autumn of 1969, and the McCartneys were in Scotland, hiding away in the mists, as Paul puts it They had escaped here, far from London and the heavy weather of intra Beatle feuding that refused to lift.But High Park Farm was no rock star country pile Paul had bought the run down farmhouse, set on a hill overlooking Skeroblin Loch amid 183 acres of rough Scottish landscape, back in June 1966, the year he became a millionaire His accountant had suggested that McCartney invest in property to wrestle some of his earnings away from the clutches of Harold Wilson and his Labour governments painful 95 percent taxing of high earners.The ever frugal Paul, of course, leaped at such an opportunity, picking High Park Farm out of the reams of property documents his accountant sent him The asking price was a not insubstantial 35,000, than ten times the cost of the average family home in the mid 1960s It was, says Paul, wee, consisting of only three rooms a bedroom at either end separated by a combined kitchen and living area The hole in the roof of the farmhouse was included in the deal.But it was another eighteen months after the purchase, in December 1967, before Paul, with Jane Asher in tow, made the trip north to check out his new investment High Park was set than a mile up a bumpy dirt path and visitors unprepared for the terrain would moan that the drive would virtually wreck their offroad unworthy vehicles.The sorely neglected property was in a wild and windswept location, fourteen miles from the southern tip of the remote Kintyre Peninsula, in Argyll Three miles west of the hill lay the six mile sweep of beach at Machrihanish Bay A five mile drive southeast down the A83 sat the small fishing port of Campbeltown and the closest amenities.At the tail end of 1967equally the Beatles annus mirabilis and their annus horribilis the marvel of Sgt Pepper, the paralyzing shock of Brian Epsteins death, the trials of Magical Mystery Tour, and the sense that nothing would ever be the same again McCartney tried to make High Park habitable on a characteristically thrifty level.He dispatched Beatles gofer Alistair Taylor into Campbeltown Taylor returned with a secondhand Formica table and chairs, an electric stove, and a couple of beds The pair fashioned a sofa out of a pile of Sharpes Express wooden potato boxes, with an old mattress found in the barn folded over the makeshift frame.After his split from Asher, Paul first went back there with Linda in November 1968 The eldest daughter of the moneyed New York Eastman family had immediately fallen in love with the place and the idea of roughing it in this remotenessno hot water, mice and rats in the walls and allbut had suggested to Paul that they do the place up a bit It was a notion that hadnt even occurred to the airy McCartney.She encouraged him to pour a cement floor in the kitchen, an improvement over the wooden planks laid over the bare earth He began making a table to replace the flimsy Formica one He scaled a ladder and climbed onto the roof to fix its hole, Linda soundtracking his handiwork by spinning the newly released Tighten Up reggae compilation LPs.If you had walked through the door of the farmhouse in the latter months of 1969, according to Paul, youd have seen nappies, bottles, musical instruments, me and Lin, like a couple of hippies It wasnt sort of dirty, but it wasnt clean.High Park wasnt entirely cut off from civilization, though it certainly had that feel Linda in particular romanticized this notion, imagining that the McCartneys were living in another era, as if they were pioneers in this isolated place She loved the fact that they were, as she fancifully saw it, at the end of nowhere.As the months passed, Paul and Linda grew into their rural personas At Christmas, he bought her twelve pheasants she bought him a tractor, which he used to plow a vegetable patch, where they grew parsnips, turnips, potatoes, green beans, runner beans, and spinach.Their acreage was home to 150 to 200 sheep, which Paul learned to clip using hand shears, after which they sold the fleeces to the Wool Marketing Board Already leaning toward vegetarianism, they balked at the notion of killing their lambs, although they were forced to send some off to market when the numbers grew too high They tried to separate the ewes from the rams, but sometimes one of the male sheep would enthusiastically spring over the fence In time, they had six horses, including the retired racer Drakes Drum, bought for Pauls father, Jim, and a former winner at Aintree, alongside Honor Pauls , Cinnamon Lindas , and three ponies, Sugarfoot, Cookie, and Coconut.Revving up a generator, Paul put together an ad hoc four track recording facility in High Parks rickety lean to, which he named Rude Studio It was in here, gently encouraged by Linda, that his songwriting slowly began to return to him, as he effectively used music as therapy to alleviate his depression She eased me out of it, he remembers, and just said, Hey, yknow, you dont want to get too crazy.Paul shied away from admitting that there was a strong autobiographical element to some of these new compositions, but his protestations rang hollow The lyrics of Man We Was Lonely speak of how his and Lindas self imposed exile was not as idyllic as it outwardly seemed, that their spirits had been low, but, under the comfort blanket of domesticity, their positivity was returning.Every Night, a song hed first begun messing around with during the Let It Be sessions, was confessional stillits singer painting a grim picture of a routine involving getting wasted and struggling to drag himself out of bed The chorus, as was increasingly becoming a McCartney trait, pledged his devotion to Linda As a song, it was a deceptively breezy affair While elsewhere Lennon was screaming his pain, it was typical of McCartney to mask his with melody Only if you listened closely would you really be able to detect the songwriters anguish.As Paul seemed to stabilize, the McCartneys settled into a daily routine, riding their horses across the land or taking sheepdog Martha for long walks They drove into Campbeltown in their Land Rover, which theyd nicknamed Helen Wheels, the Beatle becoming a regular sight wandering around in his Wellies and sheepskin lined brown leather jacket In the evening, he would light the fire while Linda cooked, and then Paul would step into Rude to work on songs At night, they would cuddle up, get stoned, and watch TV We were not cut off from the world, said Linda We were never hermits.In addition, to playfully distract Paul from his troubles, there were the children to look after the newborn Mary and Lindas child from her first marriage, shy Heather, only six For the kids, High Park was a cross between a playground and a junkyard As soon as she began to walk, Mary was free to toddle outside, through its abandoned gypsy encampmentlike clutter of scrap wood, sheets of corrugated iron, and teetering log piles noting incredulously as an adult that shed effectively been brought up in a lumber yard.It was a messy scene but, for McCartney, one filled with increasingly frequent spells of happiness Nevertheless, in a corner of his mind, knowing that there was a Beatles shaped storm brewing back down in London, Paul was still plagued with unease.It didnt help that everyone was arguing about whether or not he was dead.The rumor had first circulated among the bloodshot eyed student populace of Drake University in Iowa, around the time McCartney had first holed up in Scotland The signs were all there if you cared to dig deep enough, to stop just rolling joints on the covers of Beatles albums and decipher the hidden messages in the artwork and between the grooves The students listened to Lennons daft murmur of cranberry sauce in the fade out of Strawberry Fields Forever and imagined it to be I buried Paul They would spin The White Album backward with an index finger and convince themselves that a voice could be heard saying, Turn me on, dead man.In many ways, the Beatles had brought this upon themselves In their touring absence and with their increasingly cryptic music, they had laid playful clues and red herrings with the opening lines of Rain played backward at the end of the song with the garbled, wonked out voices locked in the play out groove of side 2 of Sgt Pepper with Lennons head game assertion in Glass Onion that the walrus was Paul.Wed done them for fun, just for something to do, says Paul, in admitting the Beatles surprise that their penchant for japery was taken so seriously Then everyone analyzed them and we thought, Ah We were completely oblivious to all those other hidden messages.That was until the clueheads began to air their tangential theories September 16, 1969, saw the first piece, in the Drake University student paper, under the tantalizing headline Is Paul McCartney Dead A week later, the Northern Star, the campus rag of Northern Illinois University, went one better Clues Hint at Possible Beatle Death.A student identifying himself only as Tom called Detroit DJ Russ Gibb to inform him of the rumors Listening in, a college writer named Fred LaBour decided to turn prankster, taking it upon himself to kill McCartney, adding arm upon leg to the growing myth Two days later, the Michigan Daily printed his fabricated revelations under a contentious banner McCartney Dead New Evidence Brought to Light The rumor spread countrywide when Roby Yonge, on his networked show from WABC in New York, discussed the theories on the air in the small hours, when the stoned were at their most receptive.An excellent and insightful biography he manages to get to the heart of McCartney s dilemma a fascinating read Scots Whay Hae Man On The Run Paul McCartney in the 1970s is lovingly researched and expertly written by someone who was not afraid to push the boundaries in order to get to the untouched juicy bits This isn t just a factual list of already documented events, this is an accessible and reader friendly must have book written from an honest and open perspective that makes McCartney s already extensively documented life seem fresh and new Josh Gill s Blog Doyle makes sense of a stoned shaggy dog story that has none of the narrative neatness of the Beatles rise and fall Guardian Starting with the painful disintegration of the Beatles, Doyle examines the next decade in McCartney s unimaginably odd existence, from his post hippy farm idyll with wife Linda to the turbulent highs and lows of Wings most compelling is the book s portrait of a man in a position that doesn t come with a guidebook, playing it by ear Q Magazine The go to guy if you want to coax confessions from a superstar, Doyle writes without agenda Mojo Doyle s writing is as beautiful as any McCartney tune Scotsman Doyle manages to say something new about a public figure about whom countless thousands of books and articles have been written, and he says it well McCartney emerges as admirable than many readers might have imagined and human, too Kirkus Tom Doyle s detailed chronicle, which includes rare interviews with McCartney and former Wings members, portrays a band that was far contentious than eager to please hits like 1976 s Let Em In had us believe, fronted by a legend who wanted to be both boss and buddy The book is larded with tales of Seventies rock star excess, Paul and Linda s love of weed, docked paychecks, and grousing musicians Rolling Stone Well researched but still breezy and engaging, the book offers a comprehensive tour of the shaggy, bleary eyed decade when the hardest working ex Beatle reached the zenith of his creative and commercial
