Paul Mccartney

Paul McCartney, born in 1942, achieved international fame as bassist for the Beatles together with John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. Together with Lennon he formed one of the most successful songwriting duos of all time, writing some of the most acclaimed songs in the history of contemporary music.

After the Beatles broke up, he formed Wings with his first wife, Linda Louise McCartney, composer Denny Laine and other musicians. He later worked as a soloist, also composing soundtracks, classical music and experimental music, publishing a large number of singles and actively taking part in projects supporting international charities.

Father of British fashion designer Stella McCartney, he is also known for being a supporter of vegetarianism, animal rights, compulsory music education in schools and campaigns on Third World debt cancellation; at the same time he fights against anti-personnel mines and seal hunting. McCartney's many secondary activities include those of actor, painter, poet and writer.

With a net worth of 1.2 billion dollars in 2018 he is, according to Forbes, the richest musician in the world.

According to a very famous urban legend, McCartney died in a car accident on the evening of November 9, 1966 and was replaced by a lookalike recruited by the Beatles at the time. Many clues about Paul's possible death would be present in some songs in the form of subliminal messages, audible by listening to some of their songs backwards, while other allusions would be found in the album covers.
