REMEMBERING LINDA – 20 YEARS ON

Linda remained active right up to her death on April 17, 1998. “She was fighting right up to the end,” Paul McCartney said. “Even on the day before she died, she was out on horseback. She loved riding so much. Sometimes she’d get up on her a horse and I’d say, ‘You don’t want to get down, do you?’ She preferred it up there than on the ground.”

Linda McCartney died 20 years ago Tuesday after a three-year battle with breast cancer.

Photography, horses and animal rights were among her interests outside of music. She also inspired a number of songs, most of which were composed by her husband Paul McCartney.

But the first one was written when she was just a little girl. Her father, entertainment lawyer Lee Eastman, asked one of his clients to write a song using his daughter’s name. The result was “Linda,” which has been recorded by many artists. It was a hit in 1947 for Buddy Clark and the Ray Noble Orchestra.
