Mccartney: 'Linda's Countryside Walks Helped Me Get Over The Beatles'
The singer admits he's always felt uncomfortable travelling to remote places in England - because he hates finding himself in unknown territory.
However, Linda loved walks in the countryside, and MCCartney accepts these post-Beatles occasions taught him to relax and helped him come to terms with the demise of the Fab Four.
He says, "When we went for a drive, Linda always wanted to get lost. I had an in-built panic about being lost. I always want to know where London is. I don't want to get to, say, (Middlesex, England town) Staines and not know my way back.
"We would go down to the most obscure places, have a great time, find a little tearoom or a riverbank. She taught me little things like that, to relax and be down to earth. It was very valuable to me then, a great part of the healing process after the Beatles broke up."
Linda MCCartney lost her battle with breast cancer on 17 April 1998.
