Arguably one of the most influential figures of modern music, Paul McCartney's time with The Beatles is well-documented and, with John Lennon, he is regarded as one of the greatest songwriters of all time. Born in Liverpool in 1942, McCartney's early musical influences included his father, Jim, a trumpeter and pianist. who had led his own band in the 1920s. The presence of an upright piano in the McCartney's front room, can't have harmed the young Paul's musical ambitions.
McCartney's fateful meeting with Lennon at the St Peter's Church fete in Liverpool in 1957 led to the formation of the biggest band in the world, and when the euphoria was over in 1970, when The Beatles split, after 24 UK singles and 12 studio albums, McCartney released his debut, self-titled solo album, and then a collaboration with wife, Linda, The Ram, in 1971. Adding Denny Laine and Denny Seiwell to their number, this new 'Fab Four' became Wings and, over the next ten years, they released many successful albums and singles, most notably “Band On The Run” (1974) and “Mull of Kintyre” (1977). After Wings broke up in 1981, McCartney collaborated with many famous faces, including Stevie Wonder (“Ebony & Ivory” 1982) and Michael Jackson (“Say Say Say” 1983), as well as enjoying solo success with singles such as “Pipes of Peace” (1983), “No More Lonely Nights” (1984) and the instant classic “We All Stand Together” (1984). McCartney also contributed to the 1989 charity cover of Gerry Marsden's “Ferry Cross The Mersey” to raise money for the victims of the Hillsborough Football Stadium Disaster.
In the 1990s, McCartney moved into the classical genre, composing and performing his first opera, Liverpool Oratorio, in collaboration with Carl Davis. Subsequent classical works included Standing Stone (1997), Working Classical (1999) and Ecce Cor Meum (2006). McCartney has understandably been the recipient of numerous awards, including a BRIT Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music, many honorary degrees, and was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1999. McCartney witnessed the 9/11 terrorist attacks as he was waiting for a plane at JFK Airport, and was pivotal in organising the subsequent Concert For New York City.
In 2008, McCartney returned to Liverpool to play a gig at Anfield Stadium, in celebration of the city's designation as European Capital of Culture, and in 2009 he sold out three concerts at the Citi Field stadium in New York. McCartney has continued to tour consistently. His son, James, is also carrying on the McCartney family tradition, is a successful musician in his own right, and often joins his father onstage.
