The heart of The Beatles – Paul McCartney

gmail

From ‘Hey Jude’ and ‘Yellow Submarine’ to ‘Standing There’ and ‘O-Bla-Di’, The Beatles defined a genre of music and gained legend status. Leading from the front was Paul McCartney. Here are some facts about The Beatles lead singer that are relatively unknown!

1. Failure to become choir boy
During his early years, Paul McCartney knew he could sing. But a young McCartney failed his choir boy auditions on purpose – believing his talent deserved a better stage than the Sunday church sermons. This attitude would bode well for the future for the man heralded by many as the world’s most popular singer.
