Paul McCartney

Barbara J. Feldman

Despite being a Beatles fan for nearly fifty years, I’d never seen any of the Fab Four perform in person until I saw Paul McCartney in San Francisco last week on his Out There tour. Hearing 65,000 fans (of all ages) sign along with Sir Paul for three hours straight was an experience I won’t quickly forget.

  • Bio: Paul McCartney4 stars

    "Paul McCartney was born June 18, 1942, in Liverpool, England. His work with the Beatles in the 1960s helped lift popular music from its origins in the entertainment business and transform it into a creative, highly commercial art form." Visit Biography.com for a three-page biography of Sir Paul that includes links and videos about each of the Fab Four.

  • BrainyQuote: Paul McCartney Quotations4 stars

    "Nothing pleases me more than to go into a room and come out with a piece of music." "I used to think anyone doing anything weird was weird. Now I know that it is the people that call others weird that are weird." In addition to three pages of quotes by McCartney, there is also a page of quotes about McCartney. Look for the link in the right-hand column.

  • YouTube: Paul McCartney Channel5 stars

    The 176 videos from Paul's official YouTube channel include a mix of music, news, television clips, concert snippets, and interviews. Although most are short form, there some are full-length features, such as the 56 minute "Good Evening New York City" documentary. "Shea Stadium, New York, August 15, 1965. Images and sounds that would go down in history when a world record crowd of 55,600 watched the Beatles. July 8, 2008 at the last ever concert at the stadium, Paul McCartney secretly flies in to join Billy Joel on stage. One year later, and Paul proudly returns to open the magnificent City Hall stadium, built on the hallowed ground of Shea."
