Beatles historian Paul Du Noyer meets the Beatles fans
[Posted by Katie Hickox on Tuesday, 06/03/08 8:20 pm] [Full Blog] [Related Posts] [Tweet] [Facebook]

Journalist and author Paul Du Noyer spoke Sunday afternoon to a group of Beatles fans at the Liverpool Beatles Story Starbucks about his newly republished "We All Shine On: the Stories Behind Every John Lennon Song 1970-1980," and his work with Paul McCartney. Born and raised in Liverpool, Paul has been writing about music for over twenty years. He was assistant editor of the NME, editor of Q and founding editor of MOJO, and he currently writes for The Word.

Mr. Du Noyer spoke about his work with Sir Paul McCartney. He briefly discussed the troubled history of Paul McCartney's June 1st concert and some challenges facing the planning going into this and other cultural events for the Liverpool Capital of Culture 2008. And, if you have ever picked up a program guide at any of Paul's concerts since 2002, odds are that Paul Du Noyer helped design and write much of that program.

Paul conducted numerous interviews with individuals involved with each of John's solo albums, along with new interviews with John that had been released as part of the recently released John Lennon boxset CD.

Paul told us he thought John Lennon's solo songs were the most "authentic," in that John wrote and performed his songs during the seventies, regardless of whether or not his new songs would be #1 hit singles. He said "Beautiful Boy" was amongst his favorite of John's solo songs, but called the Double Fantasy album "terribly disjointed." To get the story behind each of these songs, you can read Paul's book, "We All Shine On."
