About the Author

Since writing his first song at the age of fourteen, Paul McCartney’s career has been impossibly prolific and singularly influential. In the 1960s, Paul changed the world forever with The Beatles. He didn’t stop there, continuing to push boundaries as a solo artist, with Wings, and through collaborations with numerous world-renowned artists. He has received eighteen Grammys, and in 1997 was knighted by Her Majesty the Queen for his services to music. Paul’s most recent album McCartney III debuted at #1 on the Billboard charts in December 2020.

Paul is a dedicated philanthropist, passionately advocating for many causes, including animal rights and environmental issues. He’s also a very proud grandfather.
