Paul McCartney, the last remaining bachelor Beatle, got married.
His bride, the former Linda Eastman, won McCartney’s heart while she was working as a celebrity photographer. Sent from her New York home to London on assignment to take pictures of “Swinging Sixties” musicians, she ran into McCartney several times during her assignment. They met again in New York a few months later, and McCartney was smitten. He asked her to come to London, they soon married, and fans everywhere had to give up their dreams of marrying a Beatle.
Linda McCartney’s marriage to Paul happened at a time when the band was on the rocks, and the Beatles’ breakup was soon to follow. Though Linda didn’t have much involvement in the music of the Beatles, she was to play a big part in Paul’s next band, Wings. Still, she didn’t always get the credit she deserved.
