The Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney recently celebrated his 80th birthday on a yacht over the weekend. As it seemed, the veteran musician took his family for a cruise off the Greek island of Mykonos. His wife Nancy Shevell, daughters Stella and Mary, Stella’s husband Alasdhair, and Mary’s sons Arthur and Elliot were all on board.

Paul McCartney was seen having a great time
Pictures started surfacing on the internet. Sir Paul, in wet navy trunks and shirt, was seen joking around with his wife after they took a dip in the sea. While fashion designer Stella also took the plunge in a black one-piece and was seen athletically using a rope to haul herself in and out of the water.
Mary, who donned an elegant black and white jumpsuit, captured pictures of Sir Paul with his family soaking up the evening sun together on the boat. Simply dressed in a white shirt and dark trousers, Sir Paul looked relaxed and contented as he opened presents from his family on his milestone birthday.
He recently made a huge revelation regarding his career with the Beatles. He detailed how he almost left the Beatles It is quite a scary task to imagine The Beatles without Paul McCartney. The rocker achieved international superstardom when the Liverpudlian four-piece shot to fame in the 1960s, but Paul admitted that he was so overcome with stage fright he considered quitting.
Asked by a fan on his website www.paulmccartney.com in 2017 what his biggest fear was, the star replied: “Performing, it was always the idea that the audience didn’t like you and you had to prove yourself. I think that’s why a lot of people get stage fright and get nervous. You think, ‘Oh my god, I’m gonna be terrible, they hate me, and it’s all terrible.’
“And so I think that was one of the earliest fears. I remember nearly giving it all up when we were doing a concert in Wembley – which was a Poll-Winners concert – in the early days of The Beatles. And I remember feeling physically sick with a knot in my stomach thinking, ‘I should give this up, this is just too painful, what am I doing?’ I got over it. And as you can see I didn’t give it up! So that’s two different kinds of fears.”
