The Best of Sir Paul McCartney
Sir Paul McCartney turns 77 on 18th June – and though he’s well into what many of us might call ‘retirement age’ he shows no signs of slowing down.
The enduring success of his band, The Beatles, means McCartney is one of the best-known figures in rock music today.
Born and raised in Liverpool, McCartney was the spark that ignited the band; he met George Harrison in 1954, and then later at the age of fifteen, met John Lennon while playing in another band.
Over the next several years, Ringo Star would join the band and by January 1962 they had their first hit – Love Me Do. After The Beatles disbanded, he found success again, both with his band Wings and as a solo artist.
In honour of his birthday, today we’re looking back at some of his best songs through the post-Beatles years.
