Sir Paul McCartney to get Hollywood Star

SIR PAUL McCartney is to be honoured with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame after Ringo Starr received his last week.
The Beatles drummer, 69, was feted outside the Capitol Records building in LA on Monday night.

His star is close to those of John Lennon and George Harrison, which were both awarded posthumously. The Beatles received the honour collectively as a band in 1988.

But Macca, 67, is the only Beatle left not to have his own star.

This is despite him being listed in the Guinness World Records as the most successful musician and composer in popular music, with 60 gold discs and sales of 100million singles.

But he will be given his star as soon as a date can be arranged for him to unveil it on the most famous walkway in the world.

A source from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which awards the stars, said at Ringo’s event: “Paul McCartney has long been approved for one of his own, so a date for his ceremony should be forthcoming.”
