09/01/2014: Next month, Scotland will vote on whether or not to gain independence from the UK. McCartney has joined the voice of those rallying for Scotland not to go its separate way. In the Let's Stay Together campaign, the former Beatle added his name to an open letter to voters that explains how much the UK values Scottish citizenship and how their decision will be affecting everyone in the United Kingdom. Many other celebrities such as Dame Judi Dench and Sir Mick Jagger have also signed their names in support of the campaign.

“Piss on My Grave,” is one track that is the talk on twitter and other social media. Kim Kardashian who is married to Kanye West was shocked the two went with such a controversial song title.
What is there to say about Paul McCartney? As one-fourth of the legendary Beatles, Paul was an indispensable part of the preeminent musical force of the ‘60s. His achievements include a record 32 U.S. Number One hits (as writer or co-writer), over 100 million albums sold, and official recognition from the Guinness World Records as the most successful recording artist in pop music history. Now in his seventies, he’s still active as a musician, to the delight of millions across the globe.
Paul’s songwriting partnership with fellow Beatle John Lennon is the most famous in rock history, having made the famous “Lennon-McCartney” credit a widely recognized stamp of excellence in the span of under a decade. In the time between Beatles’ first single (“Love Me Do,” released in October 1962) to the last issued during the band’s lifespan (“The Long and Winding Road,” released in June 1970), Paul McCartney became a musical legend, and he would be regarded as much even if he had never recorded another note after that band’s breakup. Paul had other plans, however. His post-Beatles career began as a solo act with the album McCartney (1970) and then with a follow-up effort recorded in collaboration with wife Linda McCartney, Ram (1971).
Paul spent the remainder of the 1970s as leader of the rock group Wings, which inevitably found itself compared unfavorably to Paul’s previous band. But though Wings never reached the heights of the Beatles, the group scored its fair share of hits. Wings’ 1973 album Band on the Run, with its famed caught-in-the-spotlight cover photo, has become a classic in its own right, widely considered a high-water mark of ‘70s pop music.
The dissolution of Wings at the end of the ‘70s led to Paul’s resumption his long-abandoned solo career, as well as a few notable hits with Stevie Wonder (“Ebony and Ivory”) and Michael Jackson (“Say Say Say”). Continuing to record and perform to this day, Paul has settled into a role as a respected elder statesman of sorts, and Paul McCartney tickets are still in demand.
