Paul McCartney (Author) Since writing his first song at the age of fourteen, Paul McCartney's career has been impossibly prolific and singularly influential. In the 1960s Paul changed the world forever with The Beatles. He didn't stop there, and has continued to push boundaries, as a solo artist, with Wings, and through collaborations with numerous world-renowned artists. He has received 18 Grammys, and in 1996 was knighted by H.M. The Queen for his services to music. Paul is a dedicated philanthropist, passionately advocating for many causes including animal rights and environmental issues. He's also a very proud grandfather. Paul's most recent album Egypt Station was his first ever album to debut at Number One in the US album charts.
