McCartney 3, 2, 1: behind the scenes of the history of music

The result of this emotional journey through the history of music is an infinite series of anecdotes, some quite well known such as the birth of Yesterday (which McCartney assimilated during a dream, struggling to believe it was an unreleased melody), others less known such as the memorable Penny Lane’s piccolo trumpet, born from a Bach concert seen on television by McCartney himself. There is also no shortage of stories on the creative process of the Beatles, which according to McCartney was fueled by the need of the same elements of the group to fix in mind the pieces they wrote. At the time, the advanced portable recording tools we have today were not available. Furthermore, as self-taught the Beatles had several uncertainties in writing and reading music, an aspect that makes the scale of their musical production even more surprising.

McCartney 3, 2, 1 also gives us in this sense an honest and intimate portrait of John by Paul himself, who does not hesitate to point out the extreme harshness of some of his friend’s character traits, but cannot help but be moved when he remembers the happiest and most creative moments of their relationship, definitively burying the frictions that led to the separation of the Beatles. One of the most touching segments of a docuseries that is already part of the history of music and embellishes the Disney + catalog.
