Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney’s star would undoubtedly burn bright for all time simply as a founding member of the Beatles. Add in the sturdily successful follow-up band Wings, however, plus a celebrated solo career, and Sir Macca is truly a global treasure and an artist for the ages.

Fab Four favorites like “Love Me Do,” “Yesterday” (the most covered song ever), “Eleanor Rigby,” and “Hey Jude” were certainly a tough act to follow, but the man who wrote them all rose to the challenge. Wings dominated the 1970s with McCartney masterpieces like “Band on the Run,” “Live and Let Die,” “Jet,” and “My Love,” all laying the groundwork for his solo breakout in the 1980s.

From then through today, he continues to deliver a steady stream of critically-applauded albums and a touring itinerary of sold-out stadium shows. It’s earned McCartney Guinness World Records recognition as the “Most Successful Musician and Composer in Popular Music History” thanks to an absolutely astounding tab of over 100 million albums sold, over 100 million singles sold, 60 gold albums, and writing credit on 43 million-selling hits!
