Let’s all “Come Together” to wish Sir Paul McCartney a happy birthday Monday (June 18). The former Beatle who once crooned about what life would be like when he was 64 is still working “A Hard Day’s Night” at 70 years young.
Just in the last year, McCartney has performed at the Grammys, received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, headlined Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee concert, released cover album “Kisses on the Bottom,” and married New York businesswoman Nancy Shevell. In July, he’ll close out the opening ceremony for the 2012 Olympics in London.
And McCartney tells Rolling Stone that he’s not stopping anytime soon.
“You get the argument, ‘Make way for the young kids.’ And you think, ‘F— that, let them make way for themselves,” he says. “If they’re better than me, they’ll beat me.”
And speaking of beating, God help any kids who take to Twitter to trend, “Who is Paul McCartney?” on the “Silly Love Songs” singer’s big day.
