“I cried for a year after I lost Linda,” Paul McCartney has a lot to say about his predicament after losing his wife

John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr left a huge print in the music industry and even in the next decades, their impact will never be forgotten.

The Beatles, a band made up of four stars were always on everyone’s lips and their fame went far and wide. If they wanted to have all the girls, they only needed to talk as they were all crazy over them.


Paul McCartney amidst many women who wanted him fell helplessly in love with Linda, who later became his wife. From the first time he set his eyes on her, he knew he has found his missing rib and someone he was willing to spend his life with.

The duo lived peacefully until April 17, 1998, at the age of 56 when Linda kicked the bucket as a result of breast cancer.

22 years after her death, Paul never got over the love of his life. He still remembers her like she left the previous day and still mourning and treasuring all the moments they spent together.

Their first encounter was the funniest as, she was a photographer meant to take their pictures after a performance and she wanted to meet her all-time Idol, John Lennon.

The duo met the second time in a crowded bar and it was all confidence as she had a date with another guy, but seeing people made her change her plans.

“The night Linda and I met, I spotted her across a crowded club, and although I would normally have been nervous chatting her up, I realized I had to … Pushiness worked for me that night!,”

Paul McCartney said. ”I was quite shameless really. I was with somebody else [that night] … 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,” Linda said of that serendipitous night.

They got married three years after their meeting at Marylebone Register Office in London.

Paul lost his mom to breast cancer at the age of 14 and it still took his wife, he was broken beyond repair as he keeps losing all the important people in his life to cancer.

After he lost Linda, he revealed he cried over a year, and even up until now he hasn’t gotten over her. 

“You expect to see them walk in, this person you love, because you are so used to them. I cried a lot. It was almost embarrassing except it seemed the only thing to do,” he said.
