Paul McCartney

Musician

Paul McCartney was born in Liverpool on June 18, 1942. He was raised in the city and educated at the Liverpool Institute.

Having changed the world of music forever with The Beatles, McCartney has continued to push boundaries for over 40 years as a solo artist, member of Wings, Brit award-winning classical composer, half of the experimental project The Fireman, and composer for the New York City Ballet with last year’s Ocean’s Kingdom. His newest adventure is Kisses On The Bottom, a collection of standards beloved to Paul since childhood as well as two new McCartney compositions ‘My Valentine’ and ‘Only Our Hearts.’

My Life as a Vegetarian - Supporting Linda's Legacy

Growing up in Liverpool, I would have thought of a vegetarian as a wimp... I've been a vegetarian for a long time now and over the years I've seen how the attitudes have changed around the world, so I'm not surprised when I see new research that shows more and more people are increasingly adopting 'meat free eating'. Even 20 years ago, it could sometimes be difficult to find vegetarian options in good restaurants. Now it's great to see more and more choice with some brilliant creative dishes in restaurants, cafés and supermarkets.
