Sir Paul McCartney
1. The individual I have chosen to do my biography assignment on is Paul McCartney. 2. Paul was born June 18, 1982 in the Anfield section of Liverpool, England; where his family has been for generations. 3. Paul McCartney is a world famous singer-songwriter and musician, most famous as a member of the iconic pop-rock band The Beatles along with John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. After The Beatles, he formed, and was the frontman for, the band Wings. 4. Paul McCartney was always regarded as the “the cute Beatle”. He had a baby face and was always very young looking. Paul has always been known for his big, brown eyes and he had, just like the rest of The Beatles, a mop top hairstyle. After The Beatles, he often had a beard and a very shaggy, untamed haircut. 5. Before reading this biography, I always admired Paul McCartney and I thought he was one of the most important and influential figures in the history of modern music. I have always been a fan of the Beatles and although they’re not my favourite band, I’ve always admired the musical talent of Paul and the other Beatles. 6. I think Paul should recognized because he was one of the most influential people in the history of music and he has had one of the most interesting and remarkable careers. He has lived a very public, famous life but there are parts of his that only few people know about. 7. I picked Paul McCartney because I am a huge fan of music in general; especially rock and alternative rock music. I also admire all of The Beatles’ songs and some of their songs are brilliant in my opinion. The Beatles were sort of the pioneers to a new age of music and I have always been fascinated by their work. I am especially interested in Paul because he had a very successful post-Beatles career and had done many admirable things in his life. 8. What makes Paul’s life so remarkable is the amount of success he had with not only The Beatles, but with Wings and his solo career. It is really incredible how much he achieved and how hard he was willing to work to achieve what he wanted. Although he had made some mistakes, as all people will, he managed to handle all of the pressure he had quite well. For example, even though he enjoyed all of the popularity of being a Beatle, he didn’t let it go to his head and his main focus was always making good music and putting on a good show. Although Paul’s career was very remarkable and his work ethic was inspiring, his love and devotion to his first wife, Linda, was very admirable. Paul had gone through his fair share of relationships in his early years as a Beatle, and he let the fame go to his head a bit as he wasn’t always loyal to his early girlfriends. Once Paul met Linda, everything changed. He still loved music and was committed to his work, but the commitment he showed to Linda was very admirable. Paul and Linda’s love was one of the most famous in the world at the time and when you’re in the spotlight all the time it can be hard to hold a relationship together. Although Paul did make some mistakes in his life, overall he lived a very admirable life and I think his love and commitment to Linda really shows that. Just like all of us, there were some shameful moments in Paul’s life, but luckily they weren’t too bad and he managed to get through them and move on. One of the hardest times in Paul’s life was during the final years of The Beatles and leading up to their break up. He He was unsure what to do with his life and he had fallen to a low point. There were groupies and drugs all through his house and his life was a mess. He spent his days engaging in sexual activity and sitting in his glassed in meditation chamber smoking marijuana, thinking about his life. Even though Paul lived a mostly admirable life, there were some shameful parts of his life, most of which involved drugs. 9. The one characteristic that was by far the most influential in Paul’s life was his...
