Paul McCartney Young: See the Singer Before He Was a Beatle

Tuesday, July 09, 2024

When he was Paul McCartney young, he was, of course, a part of The Beatles and at just 24 years of age sang "When I'm 64," which seems even more ironic when you consider the fact that he's now 82 (which is still impossible to believe).

Almost as unlikely to consider is the fact that he actually had a life before he met John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. Well, in taking a look at Paul McCartney young, that's exactly what we're exploring, his earliest days as a child in Liverpool, becoming a teenager, meeting John Lennon and embracing history.

We hope you'll join us on this little magical mystery tour. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!  What was Paul McCartney's childhood like?

James Paul McCartney was born on Jun 18, 1942 in Liverpool, England at Walton Hospital. His mother, Mary Patricia, was a nurse there, while his father Jim, was a salesman for A. Hannay and Co. cotton merchants until World War II, at which point he began working at Napier's Defense Engineering Works. Paul's older brother (by two years), Peter Michael McCartney, would be born on January 7, 1944.

Back in the 1920s, Paul's father was a pianist and a trumpet player, serving as the leader of Jim Mac's Jazz Band, so Paul came by his musical talent honestly.

Mike and Paul when they were very young. The future Sir Paul looks like he's on the verge of tears, wah-wah-wah! (later translated to "Yeah, yeah, yeah!")
