McCartney grew up in a working-class family in Liverpool, England. While they couldn’t afford the latest and state-of-the-art instruments, his family had a piano in his house, which his dad played often. McCartney learned how to play the piano and used it to help and write many of his earliest compositions. In an interview with the Smartless podcast, McCartney recalled his childhood with the piano in the house.
