Paul McCartney wife: Who was Linda McCartney? Did Beatles fans like Linda?

Monday, June 29, 2020

Sir Paul McCartney’s first wife Linda was one who joined him in a huge number of endeavours. She was a member of the band Wings, and also joined him in his vegetarianism. Beatles fans were united against John Lennon’s partner, Yoko Ono – but did Linda get the same treatment?

Sir Paul met Linda Eastman, a music photographer, in 1967 at a Georgie Fame concert, where her “pushiness” worked a treat.

In Harry’s book, Linda was quoted as saying: “I was quite shameless really. I was with somebody else... and I saw Paul at the other side of the room.

“He looked so beautiful that I made up my mind I would have to pick him up.”

The pair were married in 1969, but the wedding was almost derailed according to Sir Paul.
