Paul McCartney is one of the most successful and best-known musicians in the world. He came to fame as one of the Beatles, and his partnership with John Lennon is among the most celebrated musical collaborations of the 20th century. When the Beatles broke up, he formed Wings with his then wife Linda and Denny Laine. Since Wings disbanded in 1981, McCartney has released many songs as a solo artist and collaborated with numerous other songwriters and musicians. He has sold more than 100 million albums and a similar number of singles, been awarded 60 gold discs, and written or co-written 32 songs that have gone to Number One in the American Billboard Hot 100 charts. His Wings single "Mull of Kintyre" (co-written with Denny Laine) is one of the bestselling singles of all time in the UK. McCartney was knighted in 1997 for services to music, and in 2012 he received the Légion d'Honneur.
