Paul McCartney was born in Liverpool on 18th June 1942. He was raised in the city and educated at the Liverpool Institute. Since writing his first song at the age of 14, Paul McCartney has dreamed and dared to be different. In the sixties, as the writer and co-author of their greatest songs, he changed the world of music with The Beatles. Their legendary albums include Please Please Me, Revolver, Help!, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and The White Album.
Equally renowned as a live performer as he is a songwriter, Paul McCartney is an 18-time GRAMMY® winner. He has continued to push boundaries over the last 30 years, first as a solo artist, then with Wings, and following that as a solo artist again, with recent highlights including 2007’s Memory Almost Full and 2013’s New.
