Sir Paul McCartney, the final member of the iconic Beatles achieved his solo star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame today, outside the famed Capital Records building.
McCartney was in good company, as his star resides alongside fellow bandmates Ringo Starr and the late George Harrison and John Lennon.
Paul was introduced by fellow singer/songwriter Neil Young who praised the talents of the former Beatle, even going so far as to say despite being 69-years-old McCartney was at the, “at the top of his game.”
McCartney’s star came on the heels of the release of his latest album, Kisses On The Bottom, which is currently in stores.
Former Beatle Paul McCartney was on hand with his new bride Nancy Shevell to lend support to daughter Stella as she kicked off the holiday season by turning on the Christmas lights in her Bruton Street Boutique.
The trio posed for photos, all looking cheery and ready for the impending winter weather before the newlyweds stood alone, embracing and looking very much in love.
Stella dressed all in black, wearing a silk top with a black knee-high pants, black tights and black heels. Shevell wore a black coat over a tweed skirt with flats, keeping things comfortable.
It’s always a joy to see the whole family together, enjoying each other’s company and supporting each other in their business ventures.
Rock n’ Roll legend Paul McCartney was accompanied by his fiancee heiress Nancy Shevell to the opening night of “Ocean’s Kingdom” the ballet he scored music for.
McCartney worked closely with ballet master-in-chief Peter Martins to not only write the music, but help in the choreography of the story itself, a love story set in an under-the-sea kingdom.
On his website McCartney explained the challenges in music for a cohesive piece that tells a story saying”… so you have fear, love, anger, sadness to play with and I found that exciting and challenging.”
Regardless of critics, we’re sure “Ocean’s Kingdom” will draw a huge crowd, if for no other reason, to see more of McCartney’s brilliance on display.
Paul McCartney, Nancy Shevell, Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon and Dhani and Olivia Harrison were amongst those who were at the fifth anniversary celebration of The Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas.
The long-running show celebrates the musical legacy that The Beatles have left behind and even includes music (with a bit of magic thrown in of course) from the original masters made at Abbey Road recording studios way back when in London.
No wonder the show is still a hit 5 year on.

I am Paul McCartney, and I am a vegetarian! So says McCartney’s new ad for PETA. In the ad, he says “Many years ago, I was fishing, and as I was reeling in the poor fish, I realized, ‘I am killing him — all for the passing pleasure it brings me.’ And something inside me clicked. I realized as I watched him fight for breath, that his life was as important to him as mine is to me.”

Eva Longoria showed off her animal magnetism last night as she signed autographs for fans. She was in London and attended a private dinner party hosted by Paul McCartney.

During a private party hosted by Jon Bon Jovi and his wife, Dorothea at their East Hampton estate, some of the superstar guests joined in with the house band led by and named after Bob Burger. Party guests joining in with the band included the host, Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Roger Waters and Jimmy Buffet. “…a totally unexpected and surreal experience! I don’t think anyone had an inkling of how special the night was to become. We all kept pinching ourselves,” said Burger. The rock legends played Bon Jovi and Beatles tunes, along with many Billy Joel songs. Among the evening’s high points were Paul McCartney’s “Long Tall Sally,” Roger Waters on “Wish You Were Here” and Jon Bon Jovi’s Grammy award-winning “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” the New Jersey Tourism Board’s signature song which rocked a dance floor led by New Jersey Governor John Corzine.
