Paul McCartney Biography

  • Profession: Actor, Songwriter, Composer (Music Score), Executive Producer
  • Born: Jun 18, 1942
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

In tandem with [[Performer~P99330~John Lennon~johnlennon]], musician Paul McCartney is responsible for composing most of the songs in the nine-year history of the [[Performer~P4797~Beatles~thebeatles]]. While still a member of the group, McCartney wrote the score for the 1966 film [[Feature~V90982~The Family Way~thefamilyway]]; it would be his last solo gig until the [[Performer~P4797~Beatles~thebeatles]]' breakup in 1970. So prolific and popular was McCartney in his post-Beatles years that it became a standard joke amongst post-postwar kids to query "You mean that Paul McCartney was in a band before Wings?" Also grist for the humor mill was McCartney's incredible wealth; his legal ownership of virtually every song ever written (including such state anthems as "On Wisconsin"); and the strict vegetarian edicts of his wife and business partner Linda Eastman McCartney. Paul McCartney has also kept active in the film world, penning the theme for the 1973 James Bond flick [[Feature~V29707~Live And Let Die~liveandletdie]], and producing, scoring and acting in the 1984 vanity project [[Feature~V19892~Give My Regards to Broad Street~givemyregardstobroadstreet]], in which viewers were offered the unlikely premise that McCartney would face bankruptcy if he didn't locate a lost record album. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
