Paul McCartney Description

Paul McCartney

Sir James Paul McCartney (or just Paul McCartney) is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer best known as a member of The Beatles. Born in 1942 in Liverpool, England, McCartney met future band mate John Lennon when he was 15. He joined Lennon’s band, the Quarrymen, in 1957. George Harrison joined the group in 1958, and by 1960 the band renamed itself The Beatles. Ringo Starr came on in 1962 and The Beatles went on to worldwide acclaim.

Paul McCartney’s solo career began after The Beatles broke up in 1970. That same year he released McCartney, which aside from a few guest vocals by his first wife Linda McCartney, is a one-man album that hit the No. 1 spot in the U.S. The next year, McCartney collaborated with Linda and drummer Denny Seiwell on a second album, Ram, which featured the U.S. number-one hit single "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey."

Towards the end of 1971, former Moody Blues guitarist Denny Laine joined the McCartneys and Seiwell to form the band Wings. Following the addition of guitarist Henry McCullough, Wings' first concert tour began in 1972. In March 1973, Wings got its first U.S. number-one single, "My Love", which was featured on the band’s second LP, Red Rose Speedway. After the departure of McCullough and Seiwell, the McCartneys and Denny Lane went on to release Band on the Run (1973), the first of seven platinum Wings LPs including Venus and Mars (1975), Wings at the Speed of Sound (1976), and London Town (1978).

McCartney’s second solo album solo LP, McCartney II (1980), peaked at No. 3 in the U.S., and Wings disbanded a year later. In 1982, McCartney collaborated with Stevie Wonder on the number-one hit “Ebony and Ivory,” and with Michael Jackson on "The Girl Is Mine" from Thriller. McCartney participated in Live Aid in 1985, performing “Let it Be” with David Bowie, Alison Moyet, Pete Townshend, and Bob Geldof.

Paul McCartney albums released in the 1980s/90s/00s include – but are not limited to – Tug of War (1982), Pipes of Peace (1983), Flowers in the Dirt (1989), Off the Ground (1993), Flaming Pie (1997), Chaos and Creation in the Backyard (2005), and Memory Almost Full (2007). Kisses on the Bottom was released in 2012.

Guinness World Records describes McCartney as the “most successful composer and recording artist of all time,” with 60 gold discs, and sales of more than 100 million albums and 100 million singles.
