Sir Paul and his violin bass. (This isn't even the only instrument he can play.)

Sir Paul McCartney (1942 - still alive) was the cute Beatle. He still likes to play at being cute.

Of all the Beatles, he is the one who truly enjoyed being a "rock star", performing concerts, etc...

When Paul was 16, he wrote "When I'm Sixty-Four", showing an early affinity for binary arithmetic.

Recent history[edit]

Always mindful of the plight of less fortunate people, Sir Paul McCartney decided to use a portion of his not inconsiderable wealth to support manual workers suffering from industrial injuries. Sadly, after his support of a one legged gold digger yielded nothing but bitter fruit[citation NOT needed], he abandoned his altruistic project.
