James spent his two and a half years on the road with
his older sisters and parents, who were in a successful music group, Wings. After Wings broke up, the McCartneys settled down
with the children, who attended local public schools. In 1989, James, Stella, and Mary (who came time to time as Linda's assistant)
joined Paul and Linda on their world tour. James continued his education with a tutor. In 1993, celebrating his birthday,
James and his friends went out to swim in the sea. When the weather started to get bad, the water currents carried James off.
Paul, Linda, and Stella rushed to the site, distraught and helpless. Luckily, James was recovered back to shore safely.
On April 17, 1998,
in Tucson, Arizona, James was at his mother's side when she died from breast cancer, which was diagnosed
in 1995. The first night after his mother died, James slept with his father and then the family traveled back to England with Linda's ashes and scattered them on the McCartney's home property. Later that year, James graduated from
college with Paul in attendance. In 1999, James, who's a vegan, wrote a letter to the Mayor of Wisconsin to try not to prevent
the Dairy Expo Company to sell the milk which he believed that was intended for calves. On June 10, 2002, James joined Paul at his bachelor party the day before he married Heather Mills. James is a sometime musician
and sculptor, living in London, England. In 2005, he was spotted accompanying his father during his American tour. However
James became a recluse, working as a waiter and got involved with drugs. After his father's separation from Heather Mills
in 2006, James appeared more in public, accompaning Paul to various events including his sisters' events and his mother's
photography exhibit to celebrate Linda's life after 10 years since she died, in London. In 2009, Paul announced that he was
working on a new album with his son. That same year, James introduced his new band, Light and went on his first tour in the
United Kingdom for 2010. However Light disbanded and James went on as a soloist.
