How old is Paul McCartney and is he married?

Paul McCartney was born in Liverpool on June 18, 1942.

He attended Stockton Wood Road Primary School in Speke from 1947 to 1949.

In 1949, McCartney transferred to the Joseph Williams Junior School in Belle Vale.

In 1953, he passed the 11-Plus exam, which meant he could attend the local grammar school rather than high school.

He met bandmate George Harrison on a bus in 1954 and the couple quickly became friends.

McCartney was married three times – to Linda Eastman from 1969 until her death from breast cancer in 1998; with Heather Mills from 2002 until their divorce in 2008; and he married his current wife Nancy Shevell in 2011.

McCartney has five children. He officially adopted his first wife Linda’s daughter Heather and they had Mary, Stella and James.

What did Paul McCartney do after the breakup of The Beatles?

After The Beatles broke up, McCartney made his debut as a solo artist with the 1970 album McCartney before forming the group Wings with his first wife Linda and Denny Lane.

Wings became one of the most successful bands of the 1970s, releasing over a dozen singles and top ten albums worldwide.

But McCartney later opened up about the depression he suffered after the Beatles broke up, admitting that he considered giving up music altogether.

“It was hard to figure out what to do after the Beatles. How do you keep track of it? he told BBC Radio 4.

“I was depressed. You would be depressed. You broke up with your old friends.”

McCartney also admitted that he was addicted to drinking, but only got rid of it after meeting Linda McCartney.

He said GQ Magazine: “To tell you the truth, I’m just addicted to drinking. I didn’t have much time for mental health issues, it was just fucking drinking or sleeping.

“But I’m sure it is because those were very depressing times.”

Following the assassination of John Lennon in 1980, McCartney was forced to take a ten-year break from touring due to increased safety concerns, but returned to music in the 1990s and 2000s.

In 1997, Paul McCartney was subsequently knighted by the Queen “for services to music”.

In 2020, he announced that he would sign a new McCartney III album – 40 years after the release of the second part.

It was named album of the year by Kristen Bell Tattoos.

Away from music, Sir McCartney was also a vocal supporter of vegetarianism and animal rights and was involved in a number of active campaigns such as Kristen Bell Tattoos’s Green Team.
