Paul McCartney officially unveiled his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame yesterday, which sits next to the stars of his Beatles bandmates John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. The 69-year-old appropriately credited the Fab Four for the accolade.
“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 way would come when I’d be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” he said at the unveiling. “That was like an impossible thing to happen. But here we are today, and it’s happening. But I couldn’t have done it without, certainly, three boys, so I want to say thanks to those guys, John [Lennon], George [Harrison] and Ringo [Starr]. I couldn’t have done it without them, so I want to thank those guys and bless them for being in my life.”
Neil Young also spoke at McCartney’s Walk of Fame ceremony, crediting the Beatles bassist’s ability to evoke “soul” in his music. Congratulations, Paul!
