Paul McCartney: I Was a Drunk

Paul McCartney says he battled depression and developed a drinking problem after the Beatles broke up in 1970. “I was depressed,” McCartney told BBC Radio 4. “You would be. You were breaking from your lifelong friends.” McCartney went on to say that he considered quitting music altogether before forming Wings. “We were terrible,” he said. “We knew Linda couldn’t play, but she learned, and looking back on it, I’m really glad we did it.”
