    Sir Paul McCartney has talked candidly about the depression he suffered after The Beatles broke up, confessing he considered giving up music altogether. Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Mastertapes, he said he had been at a loss when the band fell apart in acrimony in 1970. "It was difficult to know what to do after The Beatles. How do you follow that?" ... The Beatles officially split in 1970 with the release of Let It Be, but the seeds of their demise were sown a year earlier, when the band appointed Allen Klein as their manager, against Sir Paul's wishes...

    The other big quote from the interview which will live on: “When John got shot, aside from the pure horror of it, the lingering thing was, OK, well now John’s a martyr. A JFK. So what happened was, I started to get frustrated because people started to say, “Well, he was The Beatles.” And me, George and Ringo would go, “Er, hang on. It’s only a year ago we were all equal-ish.” Yeah, John was the witty one, sure. John did a lot of great work, yeah. And post-Beatles he did more great work, but he also did a lot...

    Sir Paul McCartney and wife Nancy Shevell, who attended Yom Kippur services prior to their wedding in deference to Shevell’s Jewish faith, might well be bentsching gommel (a thanksgiving prayer for escaping a dangerous situation) on their next visit to the synagogue after the couple narrowly escaped a crash when two helicopter pilots missed danger signals, as reported by the Daily Mail. The terrifying ordeal occurred when the two were flying back from London, where they attended a celebration of the release of a vegetarian cookbook by McCartney’s daughter Mary, to their home in East Sussex. The pilots were attempting...

    It's becoming more and more apparent that a new generational gap is forming. Whereas one generation didn't grow up with iPhones and high-speed internet, the newest generation sees these things as everyday commodities. It's natural for gaps like this to form, and with those gaps come plenty of hilarious consequences. With how quickly technology is advancing, these gaps show themselves more frequently nowadays. There are the usual complaints (like 'those darn kids never put their phones down'), but it's really the disconnect between the two generations that stings. For instance, it seems unimaginable that the younger generation doesn't know who...

    Everybody loves the Beatles. That's the first thought that came to Slidell artist Lori Gomez's mind as she tried to come up with a theme to transform a century-old, donated piano into a work of art. The piano would be auctioned to help raise money to build veterans' homes in east St Tammany Parish, and so Gomez set about refurbishing and then painting the colorful Beatles artwork onto it.But two final touches have made the upright, antique piano more rare and valuable than anyone involved in the upcoming auction ever imagined: personal autographs by both Ringo Starr and Sir Paul...

But a source confirmed he was excited about seeing the rest of his family and to continue his recuperation.

    My Uncle Duncan was among those who drove down to Regina for the Paul McCartney concert. When I saw him three days later, he still was jacked up. “I haven’t had such a good time since my Scottish distillery tour in 1973,” he pronounced. This was high praise indeed. The last leg of Uncle Duncan’s 1973 Scottish distillery tour was a police escort to the airport. The funny thing now was that Uncle Duncan, as far as I knew, is not a big McCartney fan. He never has paid much attention to popular music, except to ask that it be...

    When rock legend Paul McCartney came to Israel in 2008, he was, at least to some extent, taking his life in his hands. Not because of Israel's sometimes precarious security situation, but because he was threatened by BDS (boycott, divest, and sanction) anti-Israel groups. “I got death threats, but I'm coming anyway,” the singer was quoted as saying by Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs researcher Adam Shay. “I got explicit death threats, but I have no intention of surrendering. I refuse to cancel my performances in Israel,” Shay quoted McCartney as saying.

    OXON HILL, Md. - It's a decades-old rumor few attending this weekend's Beatles tribute festival at National Harbor have any doubt putting to rest: is Paul McCartney dead? Their uniform answer is no! And yet, a new documentary that had its worldwide premiere at the festival Friday claims McCartney died in a car crash in 1966. "They had covered up the death at the behest of her Majesty's government and the British intelligence service, MI5," said the documentary's director Joel Gilbert. He says the British government was "afraid there would be a rash of suicides worldwide if Paul McCartney's death...

The surprise serenade delighted the Democrat - who was only joking when he told advisers last month that a call from the Beatles legend would be the greatest present of all on reaching the age on Thursday. But his team took him seriously. As did Macca, 67, when they got in touch. A source revealed: "Sir Paul knows Bill is a huge fan of the Fab Four and instantly agreed to ring him.

    Whatever your opinion of President Obama, there's no question he has spectacularly revived the number and quality of musical performances in the White House. Look no further than "Paul McCartney: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song in Performance at the White House," taped early last month and screening on PBS on Wednesday, the fourth "In Performance" show thus far during his young administration. Yes, Sir Paul is English. But the award is not restricted to U.S. citizens. Named in honor of brothers Ira and George Gershwin, the award is given to a composer or performer whose lifetime...
