22. LINDA MCCARTNEY

Musician: Paul McCartney
Linda was more than just Paul’s wife. She also became a pianist for his band Wings, which he formed after the Beatles broke up. Not only did she help him weather the tumultuous period in his life, but she helped redeem his career as they became one of the most successful bands of the 1970s, even garnering an Oscar nomination for a song they co-wrote, “Live and Let Die.”
