Sir Paul McCartney has admitted he considered giving up music altogether when The Fab Four split.
Paul McCartney gained worldwide fame as a member of the Beatles, alongside John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr.
His songwriting partnership with Lennon is one of the most celebrated of the 20th century. After the band's break-up, he pursued a solo career and later formed Wings with his first wife, Linda, and Denny Laine.
In 1979, Guinness World Records described McCartney as the "most successful composer and recording artist of all time", with 60 gold discs and sales of over 100 million albums and 100 million singles, and as the "most successful songwriter" in UK chart history.
Wings' 1977 release "Mull of Kintyre" is one of the all-time best-selling singles in the UK. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist in 1999, McCartney has written, or co-written 32 songs that have reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100. McCartney, Lennon, Harrison and Starr received MBEs in 1965, and in 1997, McCartney was knighted for his services to music.
