Paul McCartney appears to have changed his explanation about the backstory of ‘A Day In The Life’ and has claimed that he wrote the lyrics – not John Lennon.

Paul previously said that the ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ (1967) song was inspired by a drugged-up politician who “blew his mind out in a car”. His bandmate John had contradicted him, saying that it was based on the car crash that killed 21-year-old Guinness heir Tara Browne in 1966.

Not so, says Paul, has now contradicted the previous account and insisted it was inspired by a car accident which killed his friend, 21-year-old Guinness heir Tara Browne.
Previously John said Browne’s crash ‘was in my mind when I was writing that verse.’
The Honourable Tara Browne was a young London socialite, who was killed in an automobile accident on December 18, 1966. Browne was the son of Dominick Browne, 4th Baron Oranmore and a long lasting member of the House of Lords. Tara’s mother is Oonagh Guinness, who was the heiress to the Guinness fortune and the youngest of the three Golden Guinness Girls.

Tara Browne was the heir to the Guinness dry stout fortune. The circumstances surrounding his death are connected to The Beatles and Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones. Browne was killed when his white Lotus Elan convertible crashed into a large truck near the junction of Redcliffe Square and Redcliffe Gardens, in Kensington, London.
A woman named Suki Potier was in the car with Tara Browne when he was killed. Suki was an English model. Following the crash, Potier started dating Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones, who was a great friend of Tara. Suki moved into Jones fifteenth century farmhouse in the last few months before his death. Tara Browne had a relationship with The Beatles. He was friends with both John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

Tara Browne was with Paul McCartney when he crashed his moped in 1965, and received facial injuries. In 1967, The Beatles released the song A Day in the Life. The song has become famous for words describing a car accident. John Lennon has said the lyrics for A Day in the Life were written about the death of Tara Browne.

But McCartney has now clarified in his forthcoming book The Lyrics that the words are indeed about Browne, whom he counted as a friend. He also said that he wrote the lyrics, not Lennon as had been previously believed.

In the book, which is released on Tuesday (November 2), McCartney says of Browne: “I wrote about him in A Day in the Life. ‘He blew his mind in a car/he didn’t notice that the lights had changed.’”
