To me it's more than just a fancy gold star in the ground, it's honoring someone who is timeless and makes stellar music.
Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) February 13, 2012
RoadFish.com men’s lifestyle and finance magazine cheered Paul McCartney for taking home last night the Grammy award for Best Historical Album, but insists that his Hollywood Walk of Fame Star, granted on Thursday, is long overdue. McCartney, whom the Guinness Book of Records lists as the most successful musician and composer in popular music history, boasts sales of 100 million singles and 60 gold discs. Until Thursday, he was the only Beatle without a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The Beatles were granted a group star on Hollywood’s famous pathway in 1998, and fellow Beatles members Ringo Starr, John Lennon, and George Harrison each have individual stars as well. McCartney was the last of the Fab Four to be given a star.
An induction into the Walk of Fame ceremony took place on Thursday in Hollywood, where McCartney’s star was placed next to the stars of the other three Beatles outside the Capitol Records building. The Guardian reports that McCartney stated, "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 that 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."
RoadFish.com’s editor is quoted saying, "Of course I'm pumped that one of my favorite artists has received such an honor (as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame), but I think calling it belated is an understatement. Look at this guy- nearly 70 years old and still singing his heart out, making music, and winning Grammys. Every other guy in the band has a star. To me it's more than just a fancy gold star in the ground, it's honoring someone who is timeless and makes stellar music. I just think it's something that is long overdue."
Paul McCartney, who just released his 16th solo album “Kisses on the Bottom,” performed at last night’s Grammy Awards and took home the Award for Best Historical Album. McCartney’s Beatles song “Yesterday” is the most covered song in the history of recorded music, having been covered by more than 1,600 artists. The 69-year-old singer songwriter was knighted for his musical services in 1997 and became Sir Paul McCartney.
RoadFish.com’s editor praised McCartney for last night’s Grammy performance of “My Valentine,” and said he was “pumped that McCartney is still winning awards for his timeless music.”
McCartney’s 2011 tour, “On the Run,” is slated to hit Rotterdam, Holland with McCartney’s next performance on March 24.
