Sir Paul McCartney gets star on Hollywood Walk of Fame. Finally!

Paul McCartney Star

(Steve Granitz/

No, that headline is not from 1997. Or 1989. Or 1975. Today, Sir Paul McCartney, at 69 years old, finally received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Even more astoundingly, McCartney is the last of the Beatles to earn this honor. John Lennon posthumously got his star in 1988; The Beatles as a band got their star in 1998; George Harrison got his star posthumously in 2009; and Ringo Starr got his star in 2010. Like their respective stars, McCartney’s was placed today in front of the famed Capitol Records building.

Reportedly, McCartney was nominated for a star in 1993, but scheduling issues kept the ceremony from happening until 19 years later, the same week McCartney releases an album of standards, Kisses on the Bottom. Which somehow reminds us: Axl Rose doesn’t have a Hollywood Walk of Fame star either.

Check out a photo of McCartney at today’s ceremony below:
