Happy Birthday to Paul McCartney, who turns 71 years old today (June 18th).
To date, McCartney is the most successful songwriter in history, having written or co-written about a million Number One hits. McCartney met his original songwriting partner John Lennonon July 6th, 1957 at a church social where Lennon was performing. After joining Lennon’s band, the Quarrymen, McCartney persuaded Lennon to add his friend George Harrison in 1958, and the seeds of the Beatles were born. Ringo Starr joined the group in 1962.
Over 50 years since starting his musical career,and having written some of the most beloved music of the 20th century, McCartney is still unable to read or write a note of music – Hope for us all yet so.
For the day that’s in it..
