ritish music icon Paul McCartney is opening up about The Beatles’ superhit track Eleanor Rigby and the woman who inspired it.
In an essay penned for The New Yorker, the former Beatles member threw light at his creative process when writing the song.
The hit track was released on August 5, 1966, as the second song on their seventh album, Revolver.
He opened up about the song’s titular character, who has for long been a topic of mystery for all fans of the classic rock band.
McCartney refuted the long-standing theory that it was inspired by a grave marked as ‘Eleanor Rigby’ at Woolton’s St. Peter’s Church, where he and John Lennon first met in 1957 as teenagers.
