There are many revelations in the ex-Beatle's new authorized biography, Paul McCartney: Many Years From Now, written by Barry Miles. The56-year-old musician reminisces about how he was "turned on to pot" by Bob Dylan in a New York hotel room in 1964. Two years later in London, he gave Rolling Stone Mick Jagger his first joint. "Funny," said McCartney, who was once known as the "cute" Beatle, "because everyone would have thought it would have been the other way 'round." The book will be out in October.
