Paul McCartney`s wife helped him survive depression
London: Beatles legend Paul McCartney has revealed it was because of his ex-wife Linda that he was able to survive a nervous breakdown in 1969.
In a new biography by music journalist Tom Doyle, it is revealed that McCartney, 71, suffered anxiety and began smoking more marijuana after band member John Lennon decided to leave the group in 1969, reported Contactmusic.
"It was Linda who saved me and it was all done in a sort of domestic setting," McCartney said.
The English rock band consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.
