Hailing from The Beatles, Sir Paul McCartney is perhaps one of the best-known and most respected musicians of all time.
In recent moments, he has been praised for supporting up-and-coming stars after recently opening his childhood home for unsigned music stars to perform in.
The legend began his music career in the Quarrymen in 1957, which would later become The Beatles - the band that fans would later grow and love in their masses.
Now aged 79, the singer, songwriter and musician has a wealth of experience and fame in the music industry.
As of 2022, Sir Paul McCartney has an estimated net worth of $1.2 billion (£913 million), according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Songs he wrote, including Yesterday, Eleanor Rigby and Blackbird are among the most-covered songs in history, according to Mental Floss.
Following The Beatles split in 1970, he made his debut as a solo artist that same year with the album McCartney.
The musician then went on to form the band Wings alongside his first wife Linda and Denny Laine, which became one of the most successful bands of the 70s.
In the 80s, McCartney went solo again and has been touring since 1989. At the time of writing, he is currently preparing to tour the US with his Got Back show.
The music legend also plans to headline Glastonbury later this year, joining the likes of Billie Eilish, Diana Ross, Kendrick Lamar and Olivia Rodrigo.
On his website, fans can purchase merchandise including T-shirts, CDs and LPs.
