Although he studied trumpet, he soon realized that he would not be able to sing the way he loved, so piano and guitar were good substitutes, until rock and roll in the United States after the war Did not shake the youthful inertia of.
Pain over the death of his mother Mary when he was only 14 found solace in the howls of freedom uttered by Jean Vincent or Little Richard, or in the romantic compositions of Buddy Holly. However, Paul was particularly impressed by the fact that there were people whose livelihood involved writing songs for famous artists, so he glimpsed a far more enduring future than that of a young rock star.

In the late 1960s, Lennon was debating internally about the best way to intervene in the social unrest taking place in various countries; Paul’s concern was the absence of the Beatles in the grid of great festivals of the time and the way the band was kept together.
His passion for work and his efforts to take charge alienated him from the rest of his colleagues, who had already accepted the separation as inevitable and in some cases even saw it as a relief.
Along with the rest of his bandmates, the breakup of The Beatles hit Paul hard, who found himself lost and full of questions about his future. Overwhelmed by the situation, he fell into a deep depression, which led him to indulge in some excesses with alcohol and drugs, but far from doing it publicly and selling his “busted rocker” image, he married his new wife, Linda Eastman.
