Liverpool-born “terminally cheerful” Angie McCartney has enjoyed a life of amazing ups and downs, tempered by a breathtaking blend of optimism and determination to succeed, no matter what may befall her.
She married Paul McCartney’s father Jim in November 1964, at the height of The Beatles phenomenon that powered much of the music of the Swinging Sixties, but even before that her life was remarkable. She survived not only childhood illness, but the bombing of Liverpool in World War II, learning the skills that would help shape a career that continues to this day.
Throughout her life, having finished her formal schooling at the age of 11, Angie has pursued writing, and now this determined octogenarian has finally collected many terrific memories, from first meeting John Lennon to travelling the world with her daughter Ruth, through to her most recent ventures which include establishing McCartney Multimedia, Inc. and setting up her own thriving organic tea business. Angie modestly claims her busy lifestyle is simply better than working for a living.
