Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney has been the most prolific ex-Beatle, releasing more than two dozen albums as either a solo artist or with his post-Fab group Wings since his most famous band broke up in 1970. He wasted no time making new music following the split, putting out his self-titled debut – on which he played every single instrument – right around the time their breakup was announced. Over the next decade, he scored six No. 1 albums, including ‘Band on the Run,’ his best work since the Beatles. Since Wings dissolved at the end of the ‘70s, McCartney has released a series of solo records that explore everything from everlasting love to his early rock ‘n’ roll roots to his own nostalgia. He continues to make music and perform live, 50 years after he turned the world on its head with the Beatles.
