None of us wanted to be the bass player. In our minds he was the fat guy who always played at the back.' - Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney is a cultural touchstone, the icon in a sea of 20th-century icons. As one half of the legendary Lennon-McCartney song-writing duo he helped transform popular music, moving from the simplistic pop of Love Me Do to the avant-garde symphonies of A Day in the Life to generation-binding anthems such as Hey Jude. McCartney’s own ambitions fuelled much of the group’s progress. But even as he steered himself from childhood tragedy to his meeting with John Lennon to the gestation of the Beatles and their rise to international acclaim, the same appetites that drove the group to its greatest creative and commercial heights also served to tear the band members apart. Neither McCartney’s career nor the bonds between the Beatles ended with the Beatles’ break-up. McCartney as a musical visionary, capable of crafting pop gems such as Band on the Run and Maybe I’m Amazed. The work with Wings especially has been re-appraised over recent years and is held highly by anyone who has heard. Why is it that this stuff as well as the Beatles stuff never seems dated?

Below are images over his entire career, capturing a musical genuius.
