McCartney brother shares gig photos

Behind-The-Scenes photos of last summer's Live8 concert in Hyde Park feature in a new book published by photographer Mike McCartney today.

Live8 coolpix is a photo diary of the concert, including candid shots of celebrities.

As a guest of his brother Sir Paul and show organiser Bob Geldof, Mike McCartney had access to areas closed to most press and official photographers.

Only 1,500 special limited edition copies of Live8 will be published, with profits going directly to the Live Aid Trust.

In a foreword, Sir Paul, pictured on Sting's knee, says: "Live8 was one of the greatest days possibly of the decade.

"Luckily, Mike was there to capture many of the exciting backstage happenings."

Mike added: "If all of them sell, we'll raise tens of thousands of pounds towards making African and world poverty history."

The books costs £30 unsigned, £60 signed. Pictures include Bono, Brad Pitt, Sting, Matt Lucas and David Walliams, Kofi Annan, Chris Martin, Peter Kay, Madonna, Peter Blake, Sir Ian McKellen, Joss Stone, Bill Gates and George Michael.

I never knew that Paul had a brother, I guess it is not the most important thing to know though.

i just saw this video with Ringo in it. I guess that it’s about Dave Stewart’s (from the Eurythmics) first group in the 70s that never released their album back then, and now there’s a big VH1 special on them July 5th @ 6.

anyone else heard about this?
