Paul McCartney Still Rocking the Music World by Kristin Stevens

Paul McCartney is best know as one of the founding members of The Beatles, originally called the Quarrymen before changing their name to the Silver Beatles and eventually The Beatles.

Paul McCartney met up with John Lennon and the duo went on to collaborate and write almost all of The Beatles' hit songs including songs like "All My Lovin'", "Penny Lane", and "The Long and Winding Road". The Beatles achieved worldwide superstardom and also helped legitimize Rock music as an art form with the production of the concept album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Paul McCartney revealed to the world, with his first solo album in 1970 entitled McCartney, that the Beatles had broken up. McCartney later went on to achieve success as a solo artist when he issued the album RAM with his wife Linda McCartney.

Paul eventually formed the band Wings which went on to produce numerous albums with number one songs and highly successful concert tours. McCartney broke from Wings and continued to make music as a solo artist playing a mix of solo, Wings and Beatles songs live in concert.

At one time during Paul's stint as a Beatle using clues from Beatles' songs and album covers, there were widespread rumours that McCartney had died and a look-alike had filled his spot in the Beatles. The hoax was eventually proven to be false - McCartney continues to create music and performs to sold out crowds and concerts all over the world. At one time McCartney was imprisoned in Japan for possession of marijuana.
