About

From The Scotsman:

He once sang that his desire was always to be there. But previously unpublished photographs reveal that life was not always so idyllic on Kintyre for Sir Paul McCartney. The images show the former Beatle practising on his bass guitar in a chilly converted barn in front of an electric fire, next to an old curtain.

He is sockless and wearing what appear to be a pair of elderly slippers. In another of the photographs taken by his first wife Linda, Sir Paul looks a little dishevelled as he rehearses for the Wings at the Speed of Sound album in December 1975. The McCartneys had gone to Scotland around Christmas that year in a brief family break from a hectic touring schedule.
