Linda and Paul McCartney

1998 – Surviving Beatles Sir Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, Sting, Pete Townshend and Sir Elton John are among the mourners at a private service for McCartney’s late wife, Linda, at St. Martins-in-the-Fields church in London. The crowd sings a version of McCartney’s Beatle-era classic “Let It Be,” and the Brodsky Quartet performs songs that McCartney penned for his wife, including “The Lovely Linda” and Calico Skies.

American-born Linda McCartney, who died of cancer at age 56, was remembered as more than the wife of a former Beatle. With her husband Paul McCartney in seclusion in England Monday, their fans and others who knew the couple and their children shared memories of the photographer, musician and animal rights activist who built a multi-million dollar vegetarian food business.
