Finally, McCartney gets a star

Paul McCartney finally gets a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Gets a star at last
It might come as a surprise to everyone but Paul McCartney did not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, until now.

The Beatles' titan, who has a new album out entitled Kisses On The Bottom, received a star after a ceremony took place outside of Capitol Records in Los Angeles.

"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," he said, visibly moved by the occasion.

McCartney then played a fantastic set with Diana Krall and her band inside the epic building, dazzling audience members with his guitar skills.

Funnily enough, he is the last member of the Fab Four to have a star installed on the walk of fame – John Lennon got his in 1988, George Harrison received his in 2009 and Ring Starr was honoured in 2010.
