Paul McCartney gets star on Walk of Fame

Paul McCartney, 69, received a star on Hollywood’s Walk Of Fame yesterday alongside those of the other Beatles. Surprisingly, despite being the most successful member of the band, he is the last one to be given the honor. The group received a collective star in 1998, while the late John Lennon and George Harrison both received theirs posthumously. Ringo Starr received one in 2010. Paul paid tribute to his former bandmates during his acceptance speech, saying, “Way back in history, in Liverpool when we were kids and we were listening to Buddy Holly and all the rock ‘n’ roll greats, I would have never thought the day would come when I’d be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. That was like an impossible thing to happen. But here we are today, and it’s happening. But I couldn’t have done it without, certainly, three boys — so I want to say thanks to those guys, John, George and Ringo. I couldn’t have done it without them, so I want to thank those guys and bless them for being in my life.”

    Well that’s kind of a slap in the face that it took this long to get one. Especially considering his 2 bnadmates got them after they were dead

    Paul got his star of February 9th – my birthday! Also, the Beatles were on The Ed Sullivan Show for the first time on February 9th, 1964 (also on my birthday). How about that!

    About time, glad they didn’t wait for another posthumous award ceremony. Congrats to the legend that is sir Paul McCartney.

    Patricia that’s cool, happy belated.
