Paul McCartney turns 73 today. He was a Beatle for 10 of those years, and an artist recording in non-Beatles projects for 45. While all four Beatles have done great solo work (yes, even Ringo), McCartney’s work has been particularly impressive. Nineteen of his 24 solo/Wings studio albums have gone at least gold, with nine of those also going platinum. He’s also been at least partially responsible for 23 top-10 singles since The Beatles disbanded. Both of those are just numbers. Paul McCartney has had the best post-Beatles career of any of the Fab Four, and here’s why.
