It would not be an exaggeration to consider the Beatles as one of the most influential and the most successful rock band in history. They are the highest selling band ever, with sales of over six hundred million albums to date. Each of its four members has gone on to enjoy successful solo careers after the band broke up. One member in particular has made it further than any of the others and that is Sir Paul McCartney; Vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, composer and one of the best songwriters the world has ever seen.
McCartney was born in 1942 and it was his father who first encouraged him to take up music. At the age of twelve, he met Harrison (guitar) and only a few years later both found themselves in a band with Lennon (vocals, songwriting) and Ringo Starr (drums). Called the Beatles, they would go on to shatter every album sale record and become solely responsible for the "British Invasion" of the US music industry.
The Beatles broke up in 1970 and McCartney released his first self titled album later that year. It was certified platinum and since then he has released twenty three more record. All in all he has recorded eleven gold, seven platinum and two multi platinum selling albums. He has also won an astonishing twenty one Grammy Awards for his efforts and is now planning on heading out on tour.
