London: Music legend Paul McCartney has revealed that his knack for experimentation enabled him to create a different brand of music after the tumultuous split of the `Beatles`.
While he enjoyed the freedom of his post-Beatles music career and started a new band named `Wings` with his wife Linda, starting afresh was not easy for rock and roll icon, reported Contactmusic.
"I certainly was enjoying the freedom of just doing something different. I`ve always been like that, and I still am. And then, the other element was that I knew I couldn`t just try and make a carbon copy of The Beatles. I knew that was impossible; without John, George and Ringo there was no way I could do that," said the 68-year-old musician.
"So I knew I had to try and make something new. So each of the albums was to try and establish an identity for Wings that would then be recognised in time as Wings music, the Wings sound," he added.
McCartney and his wife were joined by guitarist Denny Laine and drummer Denny Seiwell to form the group, which was active between 1971 and 1981 and released numerous successful singles and albums.
