Paul McCartney Gets His Own Star on the Walk of Fame — Finally
Paul McCartney was finally honored with a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame on Thursday -- and if you're anything like us, you're thinking, "Wait, what? How did he not have one already?"
The Beatles (as a group) have had a star since 1998, but somehow Paul was the last of the Fab Four to get one of his own. John Lennon and George Harrison died before they were enshrined on the famous pathway, but come on, even Ringo Starr has already been there for two years.
Still, if Macca was bitter, he didn't let it show, saying to the hundreds of fans at the ceremony, "In Liverpool, when we were kids and listening to Buddy Holly and all the other rock and roll greats, I would have never thought the day would come when I'd be getting a star on the Walk of Fame. I thought it was an impossible thing to happen. But here we are today."
His star was placed alongside those of his band members outside the Capitol Records building. Ringo couldn't attend the ceremony due to illness, but Neil Young was on hand to pay tribute, saying that the 69-year-old McCartney is a singer and songwriter "at the top of his game."
It's been a busy few months for Sir Paul -- he got married last fall, recently released a new album (the questionably-named 'Kisses on the Bottom'), was feted Friday as the 2012 Musicares Person of the Year, and will be the honoree on an upcoming tribute album.
