“We were crazy. We had a big argument the night before we got married and it was nearly called off. We were very up and down, quite funky compared to the eventual image of 'Twenty-five years of married bliss! Aren't they lucky for people in showbiz?' But we are. You get this picture of us swanning along in a little rowboat managing to avoid the white water, but we were right in the middle of that white water, man, so it's even more miraculous that we made it. But we did.”~ Paul

“Linda was pregnant at the time but she didn’t like to make much of a fuss. She always took pregnancy in her stride. And recording is not like playing live, trying to squeeze into a stage dress — she only had to sing and play.”
– @paulmccartney (regarding the recording of Wings’ ‘London Town’ album)

“She didn’t self-promote or do lots of interviews, she never blew her own trumpet, and so she was often pigeonholed as a celebrity who dabbled in photography, which isn’t how it was at all. People didn’t realise that it was through her photography career that Mum and Dad met and that she was a photographer way before she had a family with Dad. But she wasn’t that bothered about what other people thought about her, it’s more probably us, her kids, who got irritated.”

Today, March 12, 1969, Paul McCartney marries Linda Eastman.
Paul married Linda Eastman at Marylebone Register Office on 12 March 1969.
Although the event was supposed to be a secret, many onlookers and reporters heard about it and turned up for a glimpse of the couple. The registry office had been booked the previous day, and Paul had bought a £12 ring "just before the shop shut".

But we did.”
To avoid the crowds the couple entered the register office via a side door. None of the other Beatles attended the ceremony, but Paul’s brother Michael and The Beatles' assistant Mal Evans acted as witnesses.
Paul, “I really don't remember whether or not I invited any of the band to the wedding. Why not? I'm a total bastard, I suppose – I don't know, really. Maybe it was because the group was breaking up. We were all pissed off with each other. We certainly weren't a gang any more. That was the thing. Once a group's broken up like that, that's it.”
Mike McCartney's train broke down during his journey from Birmingham to London, and he arrived an hour late. Although he presumed the wedding would have finished, he took the waiting limousine to the registry office, where he found huge crowds of weeping fans. Inside Paul and Linda were waiting for him to arrive.
After the ceremony the wedding party went to St John's Wood Church where the marriage was blessed by Reverend Noel Perry-Gore.
Marylebone Register Office is today known as Westminster Register Office, and is based at Westminster Council House, Marylebone Road, London.

Wings - At the Speed of Sound Paul McCartney
Released March 25, 1976
might be my all-time favourite artist (other than the Beatles of course), and I have heard the majority of his albums. He is one of the most brilliant musicians of all time, and we are blessed to have him still in very good health and releasing new music. This album is not all Paul however, with guitarist Denny Laine, drummer Joe English and Paul’s wife Linda contributing vocally and providing a strong musical presence. “Let ‘Em In” kicks off the album strongly, followed by “The Note You Never Wrote” which is an extremely underrated song. “She’s My Baby” has a very nice melody, but the lyrics are silly and a little bit annoying. Next we come to what used to be my favorite Paul McCartney song: “Beware My Love”. This song is a masterpiece, however Linda’s vocals really bring it down in my opinion. Paul’s vocals are gritty and amazing however, and the lyrics are incredibly redeeming. “Wino Junko” is another underrated track on here, followed by “Silly Love Songs”, which is exactly what the title suggests; it’s not quite as silly as it is fantastic. Next is the horrible “Cook of the House”, the worst Wings song of all time. Linda was trying to be overly cute on this, but it just turned out to be a boring song with stupid words and just countless forgettable qualities about it. “Time to Hide”, “Must do Something About It”, and “San Ferry Anne”, is one of Wings best sequence of songs and criminally underrated. The album closes with “Warm and Beautiful”, a song that most people trash; I think it’s brilliant though. This album is very good, however not Wings best and not even close to Paul McCartney’s best, which should show you just how good McCartney can be.
