London, April 7 : Sir Paul McCartney has paid an emotional tribute to his first wife Linda - by speaking candidly of his love for her.
Speaking nearly ten years after Linda died of breast cancer, the former Beatle expressed his views about his first wife.
"She was a great person to hang out with. She was a very natural girl, naturally blonde. She was so funny, smart and talented," The Sun quoted Macca, as saying.
Macca spoke of his love for his photographer wife ahead of a London exhibition of her work.
"Probably the most haunting photograph in this collection is the self-portrait she took in 1997," he said.
"She'd had chemo and her hair was growing back - it was a very chic look.
"She didn't know she was dying. She was such a strong, forward-thinking lady.
"She was fighting right up to the end," he added.
