Photo Gallery: Portraits from Linda McCartney

April 24, 2008 4:48 PM ET

Tomorrow sees the opening of a show of Linda McCartney's photographs at the James Hyman Gallery in London, and RollingStone.com has an exclusive preview of some of the work that will be on display. Paul McCartney, along with daughter Mary and art historian Hyman, has been working on curating this show for three years. "An exhibition presenting the range of Linda's photographic work is long overdue, so I'm obviously pleased that this show is happening," explains Paul. "The photographs not only illustrate her incredible talent as an artist, but as someone who was very much connected to the culture of the times, and wasn't afraid to challenge herself or her subject." The photos are a mix of candid shots at home and behind the scenes shots of the likes of Mick Jagger, John Lennon and Pete Townshend. Click here for a full gallery of Linda McCartney's photographs.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
