Anoushka learned from her father, Ravi, but as a teacher could not impart all that he knew. 'What I was privy to, being around him, is that he considered himself a student,' she tells me. 'He was aware of the infinite nature of growth as an artist. But I don't know where I am in the scheme of that."

This is a book with a difference, one that ensures all previous rock tomes will gather dust on high, cob-webbed shelves. It's a work of careful research that turns the legend of The Beatles into a woven history that reads like a work of fiction.

Despite the laughable hypocrisy, the benefits of celebrity environmentalism are obvious, even when they merely regurgitate inoffensive green buzzwords. They draw attention to unnoticed issues. They mobilise people. When they speak, we listen.

Paul McCartney Death Myths

In September 1969, the Northern Star newspaper of Northern Illinois University ran a story claiming that Paul McCartney had been killed in a car crash in 1966 and had been replaced by a look-alike... One of the greatest urban legends ever, this story just grew and grew.

I was at a gig in south London last week when, so to speak, my day job popped up. One minute I was "chillaxing" (as I believe the kids and the prime minister like to say) to some genial indie rock, the next ... I'm listening to a longish poem about Russian authoritarianism.

What the Rich List Taught Me About Family Values

It's hard to answer why flicking through a giant book that is essentially 'what amount of paper people who are shinier than you have' is so wildly addictive. You can lose a good few hours furiously looking up how much Victoria added to the Beckham pile through her fashion business this year (£30m), or exclaiming with surprise that the latest woman to marry Paul McCartney is independently wealthy (£150m to be exact, who knew?).

The Resurrection of Sir Paul McCartney and Why I No Longer Want Him to Die

Planet Ivy | Posted 06.04.2013 | Home
Planet Ivy

Around five years ago, I wished death upon Sir Paul McCartney. This wasn't a personal vendetta. It wasn't pent up rage or resentment that John and George perished before he. I wasn't a deranged Rolling Stones fan bemoaning the injustices of Beatles pre-eminence. In fact, it came from a place of compassion.

My Life as a Vegetarian - Supporting Linda's Legacy

Paul McCartney

Growing up in Liverpool, I would have thought of a vegetarian as a wimp... I've been a vegetarian for a long time now and over the years I've seen how the attitudes have changed around the world, so I'm not surprised when I see new research that shows more and more people are increasingly adopting 'meat free eating'. Even 20 years ago, it could sometimes be difficult to find vegetarian options in good restaurants. Now it's great to see more and more choice with some brilliant creative dishes in restaurants, cafés and supermarkets.

There was a lot of interest some years ago when the childhood home of Rob Roy MacGregor, the Scottish folk hero that Mel Gibson did a darn fine job of playing in Braveheart, came up for auction. It went for something like three times the guide price (I know because I was the under bidder).
