But, McCartney later spoke about the depression he suffered after the Beatles broke up, confessing he considered giving up music altogether.
"It was difficult to know what to do after The Beatles. How do you follow that?" he told BBC Radio 4.
"I was depressed. You would be. You were breaking from your lifelong friends."
McCartney also admitted to turning to booze – and only pulled himself out of it after meeting Linda McCartney.
He told GQ Magazine: "In truth, I just took to booze. There wasn't much time to have mental health issues, it was just, f*** it, it's boozing or sleeping.
"But I'm sure it did, as they were very depressing times."
Following the murder of John Lennon in 1980, McCartney was forced to take a decade out from touring over increased security concerns but returned to music in the 1990s and 2000s.
In 1997 Paul McCartney was subsequently knighted by The Queen “for services to music.”
In 2020, he announced that he would be signing off on a new album McCartney III – 40 years after the second installment.
It was named The Sun's Album of the Year.
Away from music Sir McCartney has also been a strong advocate of vegetarianism and animal rights and is engaged in a number of active campaigns such as The Sun's Green Team.
