At 26, Paul McCartney should have been on top of the world. He was single, rich beyond most people’s dreams and a member of the most successful pop band of them all.

Back home at the Beatle’s home in St John’s Wood, London, though, it was a different story. His beautiful green velvet sofa was covered in dog hair and the state of the carpets was indescribable. Unwashed wine glasses, plates and dirty ashtrays littered the living room.

Meanwhile, women fought like cats for a place in Paul’s grubby bed. Indeed, when his friend the writer Barry Miles came round one day, he found several semi-clad girls in residence. It was all too much — yet not enough.

Enduring love: Paul and Linda McCartney were happily married until her death from breast cancer in 1998

So Paul reached out to the one woman who had made sense to him in recent months: American photographer Linda Eastman.

But when he called her in New York to invite her to London, she was already committed to photographing the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane in San Francisco — so he had to wait.

As in the past, Linda ended up in bed with one of the musicians — this time Marty Balin, founder of Jefferson Airplane. But this time, at least, she applied the brakes.

Balin recalls: ‘She was a foxy chick, and all of us were ­trying to make it with her. Somehow she ended up with me, sleeping the night at my pad, but she left her underwear on.

'I was making my moves, and she just turned me down. ‘She says: “I’m going to be with the ­biggest guy in the world.” She told me flat out — she had her sights set on somebody and that was that.’

There was one remaining problem: Linda’s five-year-old daughter Heather from her short-lived marriage to an anthropologist. Paul’s summons for Linda to London had come just before Heather was about to start school in Manhattan.

Although Linda quickly found someone to look after her daughter, she later reflected sadly: ‘I must have been quite irresponsible to think that a five-year-old kid is starting school for the first time, and I’m buzzing off leaving her.’

She moved into Paul’s bachelor squalor in late September 1968. Within three weeks, he was telling little Heather on the phone that he was thinking of marrying Mummy.

Apart from being his lover, Linda was also becoming a steadfast lieutenant in the looming Beatles wars, as the band started falling apart.

Wedded bliss: Paul and Linda on the day they were married at Marylebone registry office in 1969

Peter Brown, who worked for the Beatles’ company at the time, comments: ‘She was very, very vigilant in watching his back, totally and utterly loyal, and looked after his needs domestically and in every other way.’

Another quality Paul appreciated was that, having come from a moneyed background, Linda didn’t seem that interested in his wealth.

She preferred a simple life. So when they flew to New York to see Heather, just after Paul and the other Beatles had finished making their White Album, they didn’t check into a deluxe hotel but stayed at Linda’s modest Upper East Side apartment.

Anything he wanted to do seemed possible with Linda, who had bucket-loads of American confidence and a congenial hippie-chick looseness.

She was relaxed and open about sex and drugs, and she ‘dug’ rock ’n’ roll in a way his previous long-term girlfriend, Jane Asher, never had.

'By marrying Paul, Linda instantly became a public figure — but opinion about her was always divided'

Unlike Jane, too, she wasn’t a committed careerist. As far as she was concerned, Paul could take the traditional masculine role in their relationship — an attitude that accorded perfectly with his Northern working-class mind-set.

By the end of October 1968, their ­relationship was solid enough for Linda to bring Heather back with them to England.

Adjusting to life in the UK didn’t prove easy for Linda’s daughter.

Having suffered the break-up of her parents and had the disorientating experience of being taken to New York, where Mum had an ever-changing cast of boyfriends, Heather now had to cope with a foreign city where people were beastly towards her.

The girls who stood outside Paul’s house were the worst, giving Heather and Mummy filthy looks when they passed.

But Mummy was happy. She soon fell pregnant — and that meant wedding bells where Paul came from. So five months after her arrival in England, they married on March 12, 1969, in Marylebone Register Office.

On the pavement outside the register office, his fans sang a mournful medley of Beatles songs in the rain.

By marrying Paul, Linda instantly became a public figure — but opinion about her was always divided.

Almost everybody I interviewed who knew her personally spoke very warmly of her, yet people in the media — myself included — found her a gauche, abrasive woman lacking in charm.

Members of her ­family maintain that she never wanted to be in the public eye — yet both she and Paul manipulated and exploited the Press from the start.

In her first interview as Mrs McCartney, Linda said that she wanted to scotch the rumour that she was connected to the Eastman-Kodak firm, as The Times had reported that ­morning. ‘I don’t know how that mistake came about except through the name and the fact that I am a photographer.’

The truth is, says Linda’s friend Danny Fields, that she started the rumour herself to impress people. But now she was married to a Beatle, she had a better way to impress the world.

Family outing: The couple with son James, daughter Stella and Linda's oldest daughter Heather (far right) at the wedding of Ringo Starr and Barbara Bach

On August 28, 1969, Linda gave birth to Mary, the first of her three children with Paul. Meanwhile, The Beatles were finally going their separate ways, with John Lennon and Yoko Ono ­making their own avant garde music and staging way-out ‘happenings’.

The collapse of the band, and in particular his falling-out with John, all but broke Paul’s heart. He retreated with Linda to his remote Scottish farm in Kintyre, feeling very sorry for himself.

‘I nearly had a breakdown,’ he admitted years later. ‘I suppose the hurt of it all, and the disappointment, and the ­sorrow of losing this great band, these great friends . . . I was going crazy.

'I wouldn’t get up in the morning; and when I did I wouldn’t shave or bother with anything; and I’d reach for the whisky.’

This was grim for Linda. She had a seven-year-old and a baby to look after, with a husband who was morose and sometimes drunk. She later told friends it was one of the most difficult times in her life.

It was her idea for Paul to start making music without The Beatles. So, slowly, he recorded his first solo LP, McCartney, writing all the songs and playing all the instruments.

'Linda had a seven-year-old and a baby to look after, with a husband who was morose and sometimes drunk'

The only other contributor was Linda, who sang shaky backing vocals in the manner of a schoolgirl thrust reluctantly onstage.

The Sixties were over, and Paul had embarked on a new life. His next step was to sue the other Beatles to free himself from their business partnership — which came as a profound shock to John, George and Ringo. In retaliation, Lennon gave an interview saying Paul’s first album was ‘rubbish’.

That stung. But Paul won the court case. His next move was to hire musicians to form the band that became Wings. Convinced that Linda could easily pick up playing keyboards, he encouraged her to have lessons with an elderly London neighbour named Mrs Matthews.

The lessons didn’t go well. Evelyn Grumi, whose family lived above Mrs Matthews and had to listen to Linda’s plonking, recalls: ‘Mrs Matthews said: “I’ve had enough of her — she’s stupid. She doesn’t even know her right hand from her left.”  ’

Whatever the truth of that, Paul also felt the need of a more experienced musician in his band, and he chose Denny Laine, who’d co-founded the Moody Blues. By 1972, Wings were touring the country; and during the next few years, they played all over the world. Yet Linda’s musicianship never improved.

There were problems, too, when she took against Denny Laine’s new girlfriend — a vivacious American model-turned-groupie called Jo Jo Patrie.

‘I find it insulting that Linda looked on Jo Jo as a groupie,’ Denny said later. ‘Linda was one of the biggest groupies on the face of the earth, if you want to put labels on people.’

Another problem was drugs. The McCartneys were so casual about their marijuana use that they managed to get busted in six different countries over the next few years. There were also complaints about how little Paul was paying the band members - sometimes barely enough to cover their tour expenses.

Vegetarian campaigners: Paul sampling Linda's range of vegetarian food products in 1991

Sadly, many of Paul’s post-Beatles albums have been marred by a surfeit of prosaic and clichéd love songs. Perhaps it was a case of domestic ­happiness getting in the way of art.

After buying an eccentric circular house in Peasmarsh, East Sussex, in the early Seventies, Paul and Linda established a cosy lifestyle and built up a menagerie of dogs, cats, chickens, horses, deer, sheep and rabbits.

Both animal-mad, they once sent a mongrel with a broken leg to a veterinary hospital by taxi — a 280-mile round trip.

They also decided to become vegetarians — and Linda, who went on to found a vegetarian food empire, expected everyone to follow her example.

‘She really was against meat being consumed by any creature,’ says her friend Carla Lane, the animal rights campaigner and TV writer, who believes Linda would have found a way to feed porridge to a T-Rex if she could.

Linda even had the temerity to ask the Duke of Edinburgh how he could defend shooting birds for sport. The Duke muttered in reply that his eldest son was almost a bloody veggie.

In the few years since The Beatles had split up, Linda had radically transformed Paul’s life. Yet he was profoundly shocked at the news on December 9, 1980, that his former friend and collaborator John Lennon had been shot dead in New York.

‘I’d never seen him like that before. Desperate, you know, tears  . . .’ said Linda later. And he told Denny Laine: ‘I’m never going to fall out with anybody again in my life.’

In truth, though, Paul didn’t have many pals. ‘I never saw Paul with mates. He was always surrounded by people, but he was usually in charge of them,’ says Carla Lane. As for herself and Linda, she adds revealingly: ‘We were each lonely people, really.’

Carla Lane says Linda and Paul had occasional rows. ‘They had normal quarrels, but they were never violent. It was, “Oh, all right!” The slam of the door.’

'Lady McCartney was too ill to attend [Paul's knighting by the Queen], but she gave her husband a watch inscribed with the words: "To Paul, my knight in shining armour."'

For the most part, though, the McCartneys seemed happy. Barry Miles, who saw them frequently in the Nineties, says: ‘I’ve never seen such a loving family. They were always telling each other they loved each other.’

Then, in 1995, Linda found a lump under her arm, and was diagnosed with breast cancer. Before going into hospital for an operation, she ­confided in Carla Lane, but she rarely referred to her illness again.

At least there was some good news the following year: her husband had been awarded a knighthood. On March 11, 1997, Paul went to Buckingham Palace to be formally knighted by the Queen.

Lady McCartney was too ill to attend, but she gave her husband a watch inscribed with the words: ‘To Paul, my knight in shining armour.’

That summer, the McCartneys flew to New York, so Linda could be treated by the renowned oncologist Larry Norton. They were told that her cancer had now spread to her other breast.

Paul suddenly began to look worn and tired, the grey showing through his thinning hair. His wife, who had lost much of her long, blonde hair during chemotherapy, had what was left cut short.

By the following year, she’d tried every possible treatment, under-going ultra-strong doses of chemotherapy as well as a bone-marrow transplant. She’d even given up her lifelong habit of pot-smoking.

But Linda was doomed, and she knew it. ‘Look, that thing we talked about, that cancer business,’ she said to Carla, ‘it’s got a-hold of me.’

She wrapped up gifts — including a bead necklace once admired by Carla — for family and friends, making arrangements for them to be delivered after her death.

In her final call to her friend, she let her mask slip, saying: ‘I love you, Carla.’ It was out of character for Linda to express herself so emotionally, and her friend remembers thinking that ‘something awful was about to happen’.

Directly after this conversation, at the end of March 1998, the McCartneys flew to their ranch home near Tucson, Arizona. It was springtime in the desert, but not yet too hot, so they went riding together on the trails.

Around the end of the first week in April, Linda’s liver began to fail, and Paul was warned that his wife had only days left. One doctor suggested that he warn his wife that she was about to die. Paul chose not to, believing Linda wouldn’t want to know.

On the afternoon of Wednesday, April 15, the couple went for a desert ride. Paul put a hay bale down for Linda to use as a step as she climbed carefully into her saddle. As they rode gently along the trails, a rattlesnake crossed their path.

When the sun rose the next day, Linda stayed in bed. A gentle breeze was blowing through the house and red-tailed hawks were wheeling overhead as she slipped into a coma.

The children told their mother they loved her. When she became restless around 3am, Paul got into bed with Linda and told her she was on her Appaloosa horse, riding with him through the woods in ­Sussex. ‘The bluebells are all out, and the sky is clear blue,’ he said.

By the time he’d finished the story, his wife was dead.
