Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney, born June 18, 1942 in Liverpool, England became an international superstar as a member of The Beatles. When The Beatles officially split at the end of 1970, McCartney wasted no time in moving on to the next phase of his career. As co-writer and lead singer on many of the classic Beatles hits, his songwriting was already famed and he quickly came out with two solo albums, 1970’s McCartney and 1971’s Ram. Anxious to experience the thrill of live performance again, he formed the band Wings with his wife Linda, ex-Moody Blues guitarist Denny Laine and drummer Denny Seiwell and, while the personnel changed over time, Wings were hugely successful in their own right with one of the biggest UK hit singles of all time with “Mull of Kintyre” in 1977. After they split in 1981, McCartney collaborated with various other artists including Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Elvis Costello and experimented with classical, electronica and film music. All the while, he continued to write, record and perform his perfectly crafted pop on albums like 1982’s Tug of War, on which he wrote about the death of his former bandmate John Lennon. He continued to write and record solo material with top 10 albums Flaming Pie (1997), Chaos and Creation in the Backyard (2005), Memory Almost Full (2007), and New (2013). In 2020 he released McCartney III which, like McCartney, and 1980’s McCartney II, consisted of recordings on which McCartney played every instrument
