Sir Paul McCartney: Music is my salvation

Now Sir Paul McCartney reveals some of his best-loved and most melancholy music has acted as a crutch, getting him through life's dark times. The 71-year-old musician likens songwriting to having a counselling session.

"I think it's good when you're in a dark period. The song's your psychiatrist, it's your therapy and you know we have many tales, anyone who writes has," explains Sir Paul, who will celebrate his second wedding anniversary with Nancy Shevell on October 9. "Going away when you're really upset about something and putting it in your song… you come out of that cupboard, toilet or basement and go, 'I feel better.' You've exorcised the demon. So it's one of the great joys of songwriting."
The former Beatle has endured a number of tragedies over the years. In 1956 his mother Mary died from an embolism and he lost his first wife Linda to breast cancer in 1988.

Part of Sir Paul's motivation to continue writing songs is because of the sense of emotional release he feels after a creative session.

"It's like writing your dream out and it's a physical effect where you come back out and you've created magic again, pulling the rabbit out of the hat. 'Where did that come from?' Wahey! It's a great feeling," Sir Paul tells Mojo magazine, ahead of the release of his 16th studio album New on October 14.
