Even after 55 years in the music industry, Paul McCartney is still moving along and going places. So far this year, Sir Paul has been very prominent in his performances, especially when he closed out the 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremonies. He sang “Hey Jude” and asked the audience to sing the coda with him. For contract purposes, he was paid ₤1, as he had already donated his time and services.
With his busy 2011-2012 concert tour of 30 cities, he still had time to go to Paris and accept the Legion of Honour, France's highest civilian award for his contribution to music. Sir Paul McCartney was already conferred a knighthood by Queen Elizabeth, along with several other honors, not just for being a musician but also for his humanitarian and charitable contributions.
Paul McCartney's career started in 1955 when he joined John Lennon in a band called The Quarrymen. This later evolved to become The Beatles, arguably the most successful band of all time. After The Beatles disbanded, he continued his musical career, forming the band Wings and later as a solo artist.
As a musician, and composer, has had 60 gold records, with sales of more than 100 million album copies, and more than 100 million singles copies. As such Guinness World Records' calls him "the most successful composer and recording artist of all time." He is also considered as “the most successful songwriter” in the United Kingdom.
With his successful career and celebrity status, he has been instrumental in bringing various causes to the public eye. Among the issues and causes he has joined are campaigns raising awareness about landmines, seal hunting and poverty. He has also been a long time animal rights activist. He has also figured prominently in charity events and concerts like Band Aid, Live Aid, Ferry Aid, Concerts for the People of Kampuchea, as well as campaigns in support of Aung Suu Kyii, the Burmese Nobel Peace Prize Winner.
Paul McCartney has always been a driven man and it seems that there he has no plans of slowing down. It isn't often that a successful man with a knighthood would be working as hard at 70 as he did when he was in his twenties. Even after all that he has accomplished, expect more to come from Sir Paul.
