    I thought that maybe I’d start with a rendition of Paul McCartney’s plaintive masterpiece “Yesterday”… “Yesterday, all my troubles seemed so far away. Now it looks as though they’re here to stay, oh I believe in yesterday” – but then I thought, too romantic.

    Sir Paul McCartney has finally been discharged from hospital after nearly a week, the Mirror can reveal. The Beatles legend was well enough to take a private jet from Tokyo and was en route home. It is not known whether he is heading to either his London or Sussex property or his pad in New York's The Hamptons. But a source confirmed he was excited about seeing the rest of his family and to continue his recuperation.

    Paul McCartney has canceled his concert in South Korea next week due to the virus-caused illness that forced him to call off his entire Japan tour, organizers said Wednesday. The former Beatle, who turns 72 next month, had planned to hold concerts in Japan and South Korea as part of his world tour. SNIP The statement said that "Paul is still not feeling better and this cancellation is unavoidable." Organizers said McCartney's side didn't give them details about his illness.

    If you search my posting history, you'll find that I never really got acclimated to the rock music of the 50s, 60s and beyond. My tastes still remain rooted in Southern Gospel (The Kingsmen, Happy Goodmans, Florida Boys and such) and traditional country (Roy Acuff, Webb Pierce, Kitty Wells and the like).Today while heading back from errands, my car radio happened to scan onto a station playing a song I had never heard before, "Things We Said Today" by the Beatles.

    When rock legend Paul McCartney came to Israel in 2008, he was, at least to some extent, taking his life in his hands. Not because of Israel's sometimes precarious security situation, but because he was threatened by BDS (boycott, divest, and sanction) anti-Israel groups. “I got death threats, but I'm coming anyway,” the singer was quoted as saying by Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs researcher Adam Shay. “I got explicit death threats, but I have no intention of surrendering. I refuse to cancel my performances in Israel,” Shay quoted McCartney as saying.

    Labour deputy leader Harriet Harman said on Thursday that former Daily Mirror editor Piers Morgan "has got to answer" questions about phone hacking at the paper during the period he was editor. Harman told Sky News: "Morgan … said he heard a 'heart-breaking' phone message, which clearly gives rise to the assumption that he'd heard a tape-recorded message." Morgan wrote in the Daily Mail five years ago that he had once been played a message left by Sir Paul McCartney on the mobile phone of his then-girlfriend Heather Mills, in which the former Beatle sounded "lonely, miserable and desperate".

    Heather found a message on her answer machine: ‘It’s Paul ­McCartney here.’ Paul presented the Heather Mills Trust — which she hadn’t yet registered with the Charity Commission — with a cheque for £150,000. At 14, she claimed in her ­autobiography, she’d run away from home. She’d started ­sleeping rough and mixing with drug addicts, rent boys and prostitutes. Then she got a Saturday job with a jeweler, from whom she stole — resulting in a ­probationary sentence for theft.

    It all started on New Year's Eve in 2005. President Bush asked what my New Year's resolutions were. I told him that as a regular reader who'd gotten out of the habit, my goal was to read a book a week in 2006. Three days later, we were in the Oval Office when he fixed me in his sights and said, "I'm on my second. Where are you?" Mr. Bush had turned my resolution into a contest.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, McCartney takes a major swipe at global warming realists, er, deniers, by stating (emphasis mine): "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." Well that's putting things in perspective. I'm not sure global warming has been proven to have caused the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion. Missed that report. Regardless, it remains unclear how...

    It seems that greeting athletic teams and partying with celebrities is the first call on his time!Remember how Obama said he "will not rest" until the oil spill in the Gulf is stopped? And that tackling this problem is the first thing he thinks about in the morning and the last thing at night? Some are beginning to wonder if that's the only time he thinks about the oil disaster. We know he's found of recycling focus group tested rhetoric as he's made similar statements about a number of issues. But it's getting to be a bit of a joke...

    (June 2) -- Paul McCartney is a man known for his words, usually when they're set to music. But he chose some special ones at the Library of Congress to praise President Barack Obama, before whom he will soon be performing: Let him be. "I have to say I'm a big fan, he's a great guy," McCartney said at a Washington news conference Tuesday that was attended by politicians as well as journalists. "So lay off him, he's doing great." ... Perhaps as an example of his global concerns, McCartney called the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico...

    OK, I admit it. We were all so wrong – from Frank Rich to Maureen Dowd to Peggy Noonan to little old me. It was despicable to question the leadership abilities and competence of the Dear Leader of the United States, a Supreme Being who has tackled the Gulf Oil spill with a clenched jaw and a devil-may-care attitude about whether people know he uttered the word “damn”. Several times. Probably.

    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...

    Miami Herald ^ | Ben Crandell
    An America deeply divided by helter skelter politics and war, the void littered with protest signs, bricks and racial epithets, is nothing new to Paul McCartney. The Beatles provided a soundtrack for a similar era 40 years ago. As then, the man who sang that "Life is very short, and there's no time for fussing and fighting, my friends" in "We Can Work It Out," is hopeful. "It's a tough time, of course," McCartney said by phone last week as he motored through Sussex in the south of England. "But things get better.

    t was a scene straight out of a rock 'n' roll dream. Paul McCartney was singing "I Saw Her Standing There." Ringo Starr was on the drums. Actually, so was Moby. Beach Boy Mike Love was singing harmony, alongside Donovan and Bettye LaVette. Ben Harper was playing guitar. And Sheryl Crow was shaking a tambourine and dancing around -- so was Eddie Vedder, playing maracas. It was odd and beautiful like most of the work of "Blue Velvet" director David Lynch. And, like most of his work, it was made possible only through Transcendental Meditation. Never mind what you may...

    Yes, but is she a vegetarian? Rumors--with wings--have been flying all day since British tabloids the Sunday Mirror and Sunday Telegraph published reports that Paul McCart…er, make that Sir Paul McCartney, is poised to marry gal pal Nancy Shevell, whom he began dating a little over a year ago in the midst of his messy $50 million divorce from Heather Mills.
