Paul McCartney repeatedly included in the Guinness Book of Records. His musical career has lasted for nearly forty years and today he is one of the world’s most famous musicians.
Sir James Paul McCartney was born on June 18, 1942 in Liverpool. He is one of the founders of The Beatles. In 2011, he was recognized as one of the best bass players of all time according to Rolling Stone magazine. The duo Lennon – McCartney has become one of the most influential and successful author unions in the history of modern music. McCartney is included in the Guinness Book of Records as the most successful musician and composer of the modern history.
In the summer of 2002 Sir Paul McCartney performed All You Need Is Love in front of the Queen.
Paul started dating girls, when he became a musician of The Quarrymen. One of his first girlfriends was named Leila (strange name for Liverpool), another close friend, Julie Arthur, was the niece of actor-comedian Ted Ray.
In 1959, Paul met his “first serious love”, Dot Rhone. In May 1962, Paul learned that Dot was pregnant; they were going to marry, but in July she had a miscarriage, and soon their feelings had cooled down. Later, Dot left Britain and settled in Toronto (Canada), where she now lives with her husband and children.
On May 15, 1967 McCartney met photographer Linda Eastman, his future wife. In May 1968, McCartney met Linda again, six months later they got married. Paul adopted a child from her first marriage. Later Linda gave birth to three children: Mary (born on August 28, 1969), Stella (born on September 13, 1971) and James (born on September 12, 1977).
On April 17, 1998 Linda died of cancer. They had been married for nearly 30 years and their marriage was famously happy. Linda’s death left Paul lonely and miserable.
In 1999 Paul met Heather Mills and, as he says, he knew immediately that she was the girl for him. In 2001 they got engaged and two months later they got married. McCartney arranged a fairytale wedding ceremony in a 17th-century castle. On October 28, 2003 Paul and Heather had a daughter, Beatrice Milly.
Heather had to overcome a lot of difficulties in her life. Her childhood was far from happy. When she was nine, her mother left home and Heather had to take care of her younger sister and brother. Then her father was sent to prison and the family moved back with Mum. At 13 Heather ran away to London. She had no money, no friends, and she slept on the streets. At 18 she became a businesswoman and then a model. But then Heather was hit by a motorbike and had her leg amputated below the knee. Heather could afford the best artificial leg and now she can ski, swim, snowboard and work out in the gym. Three years before she lost her leg she had formed the Heather Mills Trust to help young and disabled war victims. Her story is fascinating. No wonder Sir Paul McCartney was impressed.
On March 17, 2008 their marriage was annulled.
In November 2007, McCartney began dating 47-year-old American Nancy Shevell.
McCartney is not only composer, singer, songwriter, guitar-player. He is also a painter! He had started painting when he was forty and since then he has painted a lot of pictures.
