Music Week, the UK’s leading music industry trade magazine, is celebrating Paul McCartney being honoured with the Brits outstanding contribution award next week with an in-depth feature about the global music icon, including an exclusive new interview.
Remarkably it will be 50 years to the month since he persuaded John Lennon to let his school friend George Harrison into their band. Over the past five decades since the fledgling schoolboy musician formed the foundations that were to sustain an international musical phenomenon, Paul McCartney has left an indelible mark on popular culture.
To celebrate this incredible achievement Music Week has published a special tribute issue, with 16 pages dedicated to the life and work of Paul McCartney. Music Week looks at one of the most important and successful music careers in history, as well as talking to McCartney about the Brits honour, leaving EMI to sign with Starbucks’ new label, his current recording and touring plans plus life inside the greatest group of all time.Music Week is largely a subscription-based magazine, with only selected copies each week sold over the counter in a small number of UK newsagents.
