Paul McCartney rose to fame as the vocalist and bassist for the English group The Beatles. After the group disbanded in 1970, he pursued a successful solo career and formed the band Wings with his first wife, Linda, and Denny Laine, the founder and vocalist of The Moody Blues.
In 1970, McCartney debuted as a solo artist with the album McCartney. Throughout the 1970s, he led Wings, one of the most successful bands of the decade, with more than a dozen international top 10 singles and albums. Since 1989, he toured as a solo artist, and in 1993, he formed the music duo the Fireman with Martin Glover from the Killing Joke.
Paul McCartney is one of the most successful composers and performers of all time. He has written or co-written 32 songs that have reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. He was included twice into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as a member of the Beatles, in 1988, and as a solo artist, in 1999. Throughout his career, he received 18 Grammy Awards.
