Paul McCartney

Sir James Paul McCartney, MBE (born 18 June 1942), born in Liverpool, UK, is the most successful songwriter in the history of popular music. McCartney is a multiple Grammy Award- and Academy Award-winning English singer-songwriter, poet, composer, multi-instrumentalist, entrepreneur, record producer, film producer, painter, and animal rights and peace activist. He gained worldwide fame as a member of The Beatles, alongsie John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. McCartney and Lennon formed one of the most influential and successful songwriting partnerships and wrote some of the most popular songs in the history of rock music. After leaving The Beatles in 1970, McCartney launched a successful solo career and formed the band Wings with his first wife, Linda Eastman, and singer-songwriter Denny Laine. He has worked on film scores and classical and electronic music, released a large catalogue of songs as a solo artist, and taken part in projects to help international charities.

McCartney is listed in Guinness World Records as the most successful musician and composer in popular music history, with 60 gold discs and sales of 100 million singles. His song "Yesterday" (credited to Lennon/McCartney, but composed entirely by McCartney) is listed as the most covered song in history—by over 3,500 artists so far—and has been played more than 7,000,000 times on American television and radio. Wings' 1977 single "Mull of Kintyre" became the first single to sell more than two million copies in the UK, and remains the UK's top selling non-charity single. According to britishhitsongwriters.com, he is the most successful songwriter in UK singles chart history, based on weeks that his compositions have spent on the chart.

Following the death of his first wife Linda in 1998, McCartney married Heather Mills in 2002. They divorced in 2008. McCartney now has Nancy Shevell as his partner. McCartney practices meditation, sometimes still using the mantra that the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi gave him when The Beatles went to a transcendental meditation seminar in 1967. McCartney is an advocate for animal rights, vegetarianism, and music education; he is active in campaigns against landmines, seal hunting, and Third World debt. He is a keen football fan, supporting both Everton and Liverpool football clubs. His company MPL Communications owns the copyrights to more than 3,000 songs, including all of the songs written by Buddy Holly, along with the publishing rights to such musicals as Guys and Dolls, A Chorus Line, and Grease. McCartney is one of Britain's wealthiest men, with an estimated fortune of £750 million ($1.2 billion) in 2009.

Lyrics

    Stuck inside these four walls
    Sent inside forever
    Never seeing no one nice again like you
    Mama you, mama you

    If I ever get out of here
    Thought of giving it all away
    To a registered charity
    All I need is a pint a day
    If I ever get out of here
    If we ever get out of here

    Well, the rain exploded with a mighty crash
    As we fell into the sun
    And the first one said to the second one there
    I hope, you're having fun

    Band on the run
    Band on the run
    And the jailer man and Sailor Sam
    Were searching every one

    For the band on the run
    For the band on the run
    Band on the run
    Band on the run

    Well, the undertaker drew a heavy sigh
    Seeing no one else had come
    And a bell was ringing in the village square
    For the rabbits on the run

    Band on the run
    Band on the run
    And the jailer man and Sailor Sam
    Were searching every one

    For the band on the run
    Band on the run
    Band on the run
    Band on the run

    Yeah, band on the run
    The band on the run

    Well, the night was falling as the desert world
    Began to settle down
    In the town they're searching for you every where
    But we never will be found, oh no

    Band on the run
    Band on the run
    And the county judge who held a grudge
    Will search for evermore

    For the band on the run
    For the band on the run
    Band on the run
    Band on the run
