What did Paul McCartney do after the Beatles broke up?

The Beatles would make for a pretty tough act to follow, but Paul had a hugely successful career after the legendary band parted ways.

Following the break up, McCartney released his debut solo album in 1970: McCartney, before forming the band Wings with first wife Linda, and Denny Laine.

Wings became one of the most successful bands of the 1970s, with more than a dozen international top 10 singles and albums.

But Sir Paul later spoke about the depression he suffered after the Beatles broke up, confessing he considered giving up music altogether.

“It was difficult to know what to do after The Beatles. How do you follow that?” he told BBC Radio 4.

“I was depressed. You would be. You were breaking from your lifelong friends.”

McCartney also admitted turning to alcohol  – and only pulled himself out of it after meeting Linda.

He told GQ Magazine: “In truth, I just took to booze. There wasn’t much time to have mental health issues, it was just, f*** it, it’s boozing or sleeping.”

When John Lennon was shot and killed outside his Manhattan home in 1980, McCartney was forced to take a decade out from touring over increased security concerns, but returned to music in the 1990s and 2000s.

In 1997 he was knighted by The Queen “for services to music”.

In 2020, he announced that he would be signing off on a new album McCartney III – 40 years after McCartney II.

The release was named The Sun’s Album of the Year in 2020.

Outside of music Sir McCartney has also been a strong advocate of vegetarianism and animal rights.
