Paul McCartney's Wife Saved Him From Nervous Breakdown
Posted by Joseph Lee on 09.02.2013



The Sunday Times (via NME) reports that Paul McCartney's wife Linda once saved him from having a nervous breakdown after the Beatles broke up in 1969.

The news is in a new biography called Man On The Run: Paul McCartney in the 1970s, which will be published on Friday. Author Tom Doyle writes that McCartney had a "massive crisis of confidence" after the band split up and went to his farm in Scotland.

An excerpt from the book reads: "Day by day, his (McCartney's) condition had been steadily worsening. His often sleepless nights were spent shaking with anxiety, while his days were characterized by heavy drinking and self-sedation with marijuana. For the first time in his life, he felt utterly worthless. This was an identity crisis in extremis ... when he did get out of bed, he would reach straight for the whisky and by three in the afternoon was usually out of it."

Doyle interviewed McCartney for the book, who said: "It was Linda who saved me and it was all done in a sort of domestic setting."

McCartney then announced his exit from the band in April 1970. McCartney and Linda Eastman, a photographer from New York, were married in London in March 1969. They stayed married until 1998 when she died of breast cancer. McCartney married his third wife, Nancy Shevell, in London in October 2011.
