This Saturday marks the 69th birthday of singer, songwriter, composer, musician, author, actor, artist, and humanitarian Paul McCartney. Already legendary for being one of the Beatles, he has continued on to the kind of success that today’s biggest stars can only dream about. The Guinness Book of World Records recently declared him as the most successful musician of all-time. So let’s look back at his incredible career with some great videos.
At the age of 14, Paul wrote his first song. He considered releasing “I Lost My Little Girl” with the Beatles years later, but didn’t like how he rhymed “girl” with “curl”. He still performs it solo on some occasions.
