What paul McCartney's personality traits?

McCartney is a positive and lively person who generally has an invigorating, inspiring, and energizing effect on others. Boredom or staying anchored in old habits is not a problem for Paul McCartney since he has numerous interests and the energy to pursue many of them. However, he definitely has the tendency to overextend himself without taking the time to regroup or to move on to new things before he finishes previous tasks. Paul can burn out by being involved in too many activities. Paul McCartney seems impelled to be always in motion, as if he were afraid if missing out on something interesting "out there". Paying attention to his body's need for rest, attending to his own inner world and feelings and giving sufficient attention to his immediate family and their needs is something Paul McCartney needs to learn to do more of. It would benefit McCartney to simply stop from time to time and take a breather.

What does the lyric sound of five in paul mccartney's another day in reference to?

I have some recollection of being told (though I am not QUITE old enough to remember) that "The Sound Of Five" was a radio programme in the 1960's that dealt with peoples problems. A type of agony aunt page, if you will. People would write letters to the radio company with their problems and the "experts" would discuss them on air.

In this song Paul McCartney is implying that the forlorn lady in this song has indeed written to the Sound Of Five.

Which of the Beatles are still alive and which are not?

Paul McCartney and Richard Starkey (Ringo Starr) are still alive. As of November 2010, McCartney is 68 years old (although in the late sixties there were (ridiculous) rumours that he had died and been replaced in the Beatles by a doppleganger) and Starr is 70.

John Lennon and George Harrison are dead. John Lennon was murdered outside his New York home on the 8th December 1980, at age 40. George Harrison died of cancer on the 29th November 2001, at age 58.

Of their earlier pre-fame members, Stuart Sutcliffe, their original bass player, died of a cerebral hemorrhage in 1962 at age 21, and former drummer Pete Best is still alive at age 68.

Why did The Beatles break up?

They grew apart, like any longtime group of friends. They'd been (mostly) together since school, and were closing in on thirty years old. (Ringo and John were 29, and Paul and George were 27, though Paul was 8 months older.)

They knew each other too well, and didn't inspire each other much anymore. They also had different interests and professional goals. (The split was basically between Paul, John and George.) Many people blame John Lennon's second wife, Yoko Ono, for coming between him and the other band members. However, the actual reasons are far more complicated.

Many different factors contributed to the breakup. In 1966, the Beatles stopped touring and playing live. In 1967 their manager Brian Epstein died, and without him the Beatles found it even harder to work together. From 1967 to 1969, each of the four Beatles began working on their own private projects, and this led to conflicts of interest. Why should they work with the other band members when they could be working on their own personal careers?

George Harrison was becoming increasingly resentful of Lennon and McCartney. Harrison had become a talented songwriter in his own right with such songs as "While My Guitar Gently Weeps"; however, his songs were frequently snubbed and left off the band's albums. Other musicians like Eric Clapton and Billy Preston gave him the respect Lennon and McCartney never really had.

Each individual Beatle was beginning to move in different musical directions. Lennon was interested in avant-garde and experimental music, and his artistic taste was influenced by Yoko Ono. McCartney remained interested in pop music, while George Harrison had experimented with Indian music. These differing tastes made it very hard to put together a cohesive album. This is especially noticeable on the White Album, which has a very random mix of musical styles.

The Beatles were also disappointed with the fortunes of their company, Apple Corps. Their varying goals and ideas for Apple never led to a consensus, and the company itself became a financial sinkhole, paying for many projects that never got underway, and overpaying many of its staffers to do little or nothing for the company, while its more dedicated employees (many of whom had known the Beatles long before they were famous) could not make ends meet on their meager salaries.

Perhaps the straw that broke the camel's back was the Get Back sessions. McCartney, who was the unofficial leader of The Beatles after Epstein's death, called his bandmates together to rehearse songs for their next project. Tensions came to a head, first at Twickenham Studios (where George Harrison walked after eight days, saying he'd had enough), then at Apple, where their planned recording studio turned out to be an unworkable nightmare.

In reality, Yoko Ono had little to do with the breakup, though she did encourage her new husband to go off on his own, if he wasn't satisfied as a Beatle. The British public blamed her for splitting up Lennon's marriage to Cynthia, and Lennon's letting his more artistic side show, and they let her and Lennon know this whenever possible. The other Beatles also resented her presence at recording sessions, and speaking critically of their new music. (This she came by honestly, as a classically-trained pianist.)

Linda Eastman, daughter of show-business attorney Lee Eastman and McCartney's new wife, was also blamed in part for breaking up the band, as she encouraged McCartney to follow his instincts. McCartney saw Eastman as capable of rescuing Apple, but he was turned down by his bandmates, who decided to sign with Allen Klein, an accountant turned artist business manager. Eastman and Klein each fought for control of Apple, and the Beatles's fortunes. In the end, nobody won.

McCartney has said that in retrospect it was like being army buddies; at some point you leave the army and marry and have a normal life. There is a lot to be said for this theory; its been observed that bands often split up when major members reach 28 years old. Lennon was 28 when he stopped working with Paul. Geoff Emerick noted that towards the end, how good the band sounded and that it was a pity that they hated each other!

Who is Rumpelstiltskin?

Rumpelstiltskin is a fairy tale character, not a real person.

In the tale Rumpelstiltskin, a miller boasted to a king that his daughter could spin straw into gold. As a result, the king locked the girl up with straw and a spinning wheel, and told her that she must spin the straw into gold or die the next day. While the girl is lamenting her fate, a dwarf (Rumpelstiltskin) appears, and offers to help her. However, the price of helping her is her first born child. Out of despair, the girl agrees.

Miraculously, the dwarf spins straw into gold! The king marries the girl, and soon the new queen is pregnant and gives birth to a baby! When Rumpelstiltskin comes to take his reward, the mother doesn't want to give the baby, so he tells her that she has three days to guess his name. The first two days, she fails to guess his name correctly. In the final day a servant overhears the dwarf sing a song that contains his name, and tells the girl (who is now a queen), so she gets to keep the child. Rumpelstiltskin disappears angrily, never to be seen again.
are you asking for rumplestilki or Rumpelstiltskin. i think that's how you spell his name.
