#2. Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney Printable (** for premium members only)
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 McCartney
“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 Quotations
“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.
