As one of the greatest lyricists of all time, Paul McCartney has a profound understanding of the power of words. He made a career crafting pithy fragments of imagery that encapsulated much broader emotional states.

From the epiphanies of ‘Blackbird’ and “You were only waiting for this moment to arise” to the existential meditations of ‘Eleanor Rigby’ and “All The Lonely People, where do they all come from?”, McCartney’s best songs are both concise and deeply reflective, allowing him to distil complex human experiences with the lightest touch. This control over language saw McCartney become one of the most revered songwriters of his day. But it was when his wife, Linda, was on her deathbed that the true value of his talent became clear.

Paul McCartney’s early Beatles hits were mostly written bout Jane Asher, an actress whose parent’s house on Wimpole Street served as the backdrop for the creation of ‘Blackbird’. The pair stayed together for many years, announcing their engagement in 1967. But after finding out that her fiancee had been seeing Francie Schwartz while she was away on a shoot. Asher decided to dump McCartney on live TV. Shortly after the breakup, the Beatles bassist travelled to New York, where he was reintroduced to a photographer called Linda Eastman, who he’d met in 1967 at a Georgie Fame concert at The Bag O’Nails nightclub in Soho, London.
