    THE shocking images of oil-covered wildlife and ruined beaches across the Gulf of Mexico have horrified millions. But passionate green campaigner Sir Paul McCartney believes the environmental disaster may have a silver lining, with the search for clean, renewable energy now being pushed forward. The Beatles legend said: "Sadly we need disasters like this to show people. Some people don't believe in climate warming - like those who don't believe there was a Holocaust. "But the facts indicate that there's something going on and we've got to be aware of it if we want our kids to inherit a decent...

    Move over Chris Matthews, here comes Sir Paul McCartney. Matthews has been unceremoniously knocked off the Fawning Obama Perch by a more high profile fawn. Matthews only got a tingling down his leg from Barack Obama. McCartney, who predicts having a case of the nerves when he performs at the White House tonight, can’t get over performing “like three feet away” from the American president. Not good enough for McCartney to be feted at the White House by fellow musicians, Faith Hill, the Jonas Brothers, Elvis Costello and Herbie Hancock, among others, McCartney gave a Tuesday presser, main message of...

    Paul McCartney was reportedly "shaken up" by an incident that happened after a concert in Mexico City. Police had to rescue the former Beatle after a mob swarmed his tour bus. A source says that even McCartney's security detail thought it was just another ho-hum standard giant crowd enveloping his tour bus until things got out of hand as youths started scaling the bus. It escalated from there as they got on the roof of the bus and started jumping up and down. The mob dispersed when police were dispatched to the scene. McCartney's management is said to be re-evaluating...

    Three years ago, Paul McCartney was one of the most outspoken of the disgruntled acts at EMI, the record label that had been his home since the earliest days of the Beatles. He complained in an interview with The Times of London that he and other artists at the label, which had recently been bought by the British private equity firm Terra Firma, were treated as “part of the furniture.” He signed a deal with the Concord Music Group, an independent label in California, for his new releases. Now, in another blow to EMI, Mr. McCartney has pulled his full...
  • McCartney and Yoko push 'meat-free Mondays'

    LONDON (AFP) — Beatles legend and famous vegetarian Paul McCartney was joined by John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono Monday to launch an appeal for "meat-free Mondays." McCartney said going vegetarian, even for just one day a week, was good for the environment because of research suggesting it cuts greenhouse gas emissions from the world's livestock population. "I thought this was a great idea. To just reduce your meat intake maybe by one day a week and this would seriously benefit the planet," he told reporters, alongside Ono and a bevy of other stars including Kelly Osbourne and Moby. Lennon's widow...

    Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has played his first gig in Israel in front of an estimated 40,000 cheering fans. The 66-year-old singer kicked off the historic concert with the familiar Beatles' song Hello, Goodbye at Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park. Some fans turned up wearing "I love Paul" and Beatles T-shirts. Earlier the star said he was "not nervous, but excited" ahead of the gig, which comes 43 years after The Beatles were banned from performing in Israel. Back in 1965 The Beatles were scheduled to perform, but were prevented taking the stage because of fears they could "corrupt the...

    I found your repeated reference to Paul McCartney as "Macca" unsettling and distracting to the solid information in your story. Recent usage of that term in political circles (albeit, spelled a bit differently) evoked highly negative racial connotations as well as career-ending backlash for the ill-advised politician who used the term in reference to a political campaign opponent. I'm wondering if you thought the McCartney abbreviation was generationally cute, or perhaps otherwise. You're a grown up journalist. Write like one. Martin J. Jacobs, President/CEO, Lanmar Inc.

    Heather Mills McCartney Sues Newspapers Oct 24 11:13 AM US/Eastern By TARIQ PANJA Associated Press Writer Heather Mills McCartney's lawyers said Tuesday she is suing two newspapers over "false, damaging and immensely upsetting" stories surrounding her divorce from Paul McCartney. The law firm Mishcon de Reya named the Daily Mail and London's Evening Standard as the subject of legal proceedings, adding that a suit will also be filed against The Sun. Associated Newspapers, publishers of the Daily Mail and the Evening Standard, had no immediate response. Mills McCartney had been vilified in the media and was now being stalked by...

    Sir Paul McCartney has hit back at the claims made by his estranged wife Heather Mills that he repeatedly attacked her. In a statement issued by his lawyers, the Beatles pop star said: "Since the breakdown of his marriage Sir Paul McCartney has maintained his silence in not commenting on the media stories believing that it was best for all concerned, particularly his children, for there to be some dignity in what is a private matter. "Our client would very much like to respond in public and in detail to the allegations made recently against him by his wife and...

    LONDON - "When I get older, losing my hair, many years from now," sang Paul McCartney on "When I'm Sixty-Four," a jaunty tune from The Beatles' "Sgt. Pepper" album. A spokesman would not say how McCartney planned to spend the day, but he could be excused for skipping a party. It has been a traumatic year, in which the former Beatle split from his wife of four years, Heather Mills McCartney, amid lurid headlines about their relationship and her past. "People seem to be interested in him as a celebrity, but not as a musician," said Beatles historian Peter Doggett...

    AT THE very height of Beatlemania, the Fab Four played to an astonishing 500,000 people during a 1964 whirlwind tour of the US. Today, 40 years on, Sir Paul McCartney will be seen by more than 700,000 fans in a 13-date European tour. Not bad for a man who turns 62 this month. But even though he is in numerical terms a bigger draw than the Beatles ever were, he is not about to play down the debt he owes to his years in the biggest pop group of all time. In his most revealing interview ever, McCartney has talked...

    McCartney speaks out against war Sir Paul wrote a song, Freedom, after the 11 September attacks Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney has criticised the UK government for being too hasty in going to war in Iraq. "Maybe our government went in too fast with the Americans," he told the weekly Portuguese magazine Visao on Thursday. "It would have been better if the UN had been together," the 61-year-old singer continued. "Now it's become very bloody with Iraq, it's very difficult." The singer, who is currently touring Europe, opens the Rock in Rio music festival in Lisbon on Friday. Sir Paul...

    {snip} At a conservative estimate, the lad from a Liverpool council estate who left school at the first opportunity is worth £700million. Last year, when his US tour grossed £70million, no other performer earned more than him. And it is something he is immensely proud of. When I read about things like that I think, that's not me. [My wife] said to me this morning, 'I don't think of you as rich, you know.' And I said, 'I don't either.' But I am. And the best thing about it is being able to help friends and relatives with health...
