Linda (McCartney) called up one day from Bermuda or someplace and said, ‘What are you doing?’ I said, ‘Just sitting here reading a book. How you been? I haven’t talked to you in a while.’ She said, ‘Paul’s working on this album, and we’d really like you to sing harmony on it.’ I said, ‘Come on over; I’ve got a studio.’ They showed up and spent a couple of weeks here. Then I flew over to his studio for 10 days and played some guitar. When we played together in 1969 we really did some pretty interesting work. I don’t think Paul had played with very many people. I don’t think he had a very broad range of people he felt comfortable working with. And we were really comfortable. We were just kicking out the jams. He was playing drums; I was playing guitar. That’s the way we start our stuff. On his stuff he had some basic tracks and wanted harmony.

Every aspect of their professional careers as solo artists is explored, from recording sessions, record releases and tours, to television, film and music videos, including everything in between. From their early film soundtrack work to the officially released retrospectives, all solo efforts by the four men are exhaustively examined. Not only are John, Paul, George and Ringo's official projects
