Paul McCartney Pays Tribute to Late Wife Linda’s Brother After His Death: ‘He Was Unbeatable’
John Eastman represented Paul McCartney as his lawyer from the Beatles’ breakup in 1970 onward
On Thursday, McCartney, 80, posted to Instagram to share that Eastman, who was the brother of McCartney’s late wife Linda McCartney, has died.
“My dear brother-in-law, John Eastman, has passed away. Having known each other for over 50 years it is an extremely sad time for me, and our families,” McCartney wrote on Instagram.
“John was a great man. One of the nicest and smartest people I have had the good luck to have known in my life,” he continued. “Not only did he help me massively in my business dealings as my lawyer but as a friend he was hard to beat.”
“His sense of humour always shone through in everything he did and his devotion to his family was supreme,” McCartney wrote on Instagram.
Eastman entered Paul McCartney’s life when he married Linda, who died in 1998 from breast cancer at age 58.
Eastman and his father, Lee Eastman, began representing McCartney during the Beatles’ breakup and continued on to represent the ex-Beatle throughout his solo career, according to a biography on Eastman from New York University.
“We had so many fun times together through the years, but when the time came to be serious, he was unbeatable,” McCartney wrote on Instagram Thursday.
“There is so much more that can be said of his incredible qualities, but words can hardly describe his passion for life and our affection for this amazing man,” he continued. “He will be sorely missed but always held dear in the hearts of those of us who knew and loved him. See ya Johnny!”
