TIME's new book, Paul McCartney: The Legend Rocks On, by James Kaplan, pays tribute to the legendary songwriter--who turns 70 on June 18--with a series of interviews (Ringo Starr, Billy Joel) and rarely seen images. Among them: this one of McCartney and then Beatles bassist Stuart Sutcliffe taken in 1960 in Hamburg, where the pop group perfected hits like "Twist and Shout" before making it big.

Kicks by Kanye
Is this the greatest eBay sale of all time? Bidding reached $90,300 for a preordered pair of Nike Air Yeezy IIs designed by Kanye West. And the $245 kicks are just as over the top as their creator: they feature tiny obelisks, hieroglyphs and glow-in-the-dark soles and are molded from Kanye's feet.

2. Mr. Rogers' budding pop career.
Thanks to the wonders of YouTube and Auto-Tune, his "Garden of Your Mind" lesson is now a thumping dance track.
