Paul McCartney

When the Beatles officially split at the end of 1970, Paul McCartney wasted no time in moving on to the next phase. As co-writer and lead singer on many of the classic Beatles hits he had nothing to prove, but quickly came out with two solo albums, McCartney and Ram. Anxious to experience the thrill of live performance again, he formed the band Wings with his wife Linda, ex-Moody Blues guitarist Denny Laine and drummer Denny Seiwell and, while the personnel changed, Wings were hugely successful in their own right - they had one of the biggest UK hit singles of all time with Mull Of Kintyre in 1977 - and actually lasted longer than the Beatles. After they split in 1981, Macca collaborated with various artists, including Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Elvis Costello and experimented with classical, and electronica and film music, but continued to write, record and perform his perfectly crafted pop.
