Mike McGear McCartney: Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘N’ Roll (I Wish!)
Mike, the younger brother of Sir Paul McCartney, takes you through his family album, with stories of Liverpool life from childhood to entering showbiz, when because of Beatlemania, he had to change his name to ‘McGear’, becoming an integral part of the ’60s Merseybeat era.
Find out how Mike’s music and comedy trio The Scaffold subverted BBC Children’s TV! Hear how Rod Stewart and Freddie Starr woke Mike’s relatives and how Jimi Hendrix became Mike’s backing musician! See George Harrison pinch Joe Brown’s guitar! And why did Billy Connolly have to separate Mike from Michael Parkinson? All will be explained and several thousand more wonderful tales.
“Great idea… At last, the good-looking one from The Scaffold returns!!” ~ Harry Hill
