Born and raised in Liverpool, Paul McCartney started composing music in his early teens. He met future fellow band member George Harrison when he was twelve (Harrison was a year younger) and he met John Lennon and his band, the Quarrymen, when he was fifteen. The band that played popular music, a mix of jazz, folk and blues, with influences of rock and roll, invited McCartney to join to play the guitar in 1957, Harrison joining a year later.

They changed their name to The Beatles in 1960 – the year when they started playing not only in their home country, but in Hamburg, too. They caught the attention of Brian Epstein in 1962 – Epstein became their manager, too.

McCartney was not only guitarist for the band – he acted as songwriter, producer and music director, too. One album came after the other, bringing hit after hit for the young band, including Yesterday, Help! and many others. The music of The Beatles became more and more experimental, their lyrics more and more sophisticated and this change in artistic approach went parallel to a change in the relationship between the members of the band.

The conflict between McCartney and John Lennon aggravated to such an extent that they decided to stop touring and they gave their last concert as the finale of their U.S. tour in 1966. Even so, they continued working together on studio projects and released Sergeant Pepper, the very first concept album of rock and later on, in 1967 Strawberry Fields Forever.

McCartney started his career apart from the band that same year, which continued up to and after the final break-up of The Beatles in 1970. His first solo album topped the U.S. charts, then later that year he formed a new band called Wings, but he continued to work solo as well, releasing his second solo album in 1980 and several others since then. Since the 1990’s he has been experimenting with orchestral music, classical music, electronica and many other styles and his concerts continue to fill stadiums.
