PAUL MCCARTNEY FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST SONY/ATV OVER COPYRIGHT

Paul McCartney says he wants his music to get back to where it once belonged.

McCartney filed a lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan on Wednesday against Sony/ATV over copyright ownership of the many hit songs he wrote with John Lennon as part of The Beatles.

The copyrights were famously bought by Michael Jackson in 1985 and then fully sold over to Sony/ATV following his death. McCartney has long wanted the copyrights, and the filing says he has sent notice to Sony/ATV saying that he will claim them back under a provision of U.S. copyright law that makes that possible after a certain time.

The first song eligible to be claimed back is "Love Me Do," in October 2018. The rest of the catalog would follow in years after, ending in 2026.

McCartney wants a ruling to say his claiming them doesn't represent a legal breach of any contract or publishing agreement that Sony/ATV could use against him.

"Defendants have attempted to reserve their rights to challenge Paul McCartney's exercise of his termination rights on contractual ground," the filing says.

It adds, "A judicial declaration is necessary and appropriate at this time so that Paul McCartney can rely on quiet, unclouded title to his rights."

Sony/ATV said it had "the highest respect" for McCartney.

"We have collaborated closely with both Sir Paul and the late John Lennon's Estate for decades to protect, preserve and promote the catalog's long-term value," the company said, adding that it was "disappointed" over the filing of the lawsuit, which it said is "unnecessary and premature."

Legendary musician Sir Paul McCartney put on a surprise free show in central London on Friday.

McCartney performed from the back of a truck, livening up the lunch hour for workers and tourists alike.

He performed tracks from his latest album "New" before thousands who gathered in the famous market square in central London.

Word about the show had spread throughout the British capital since the singer's crew started setting up speakers early on Friday.

Amongst the surprised lunchtime crowd were Catherine and Graham Turnbull from Stamford in Lincolnshire.

"It's the first time we've seen him live so it's fantastic," said Graham.

McCartney has been promoting his latest album with television appearances and interviews this week.

He and US pop singer Katy Perry traded songwriting tips at a taping of "The Graham Norton Show" in London on Thursday night.

McCartney said he and late writing partner John Lennon expected to come away with a song every time they brainstormed.

The "New" album was released at the beginning of the week.

AFTERNOON DELIGHT: MCCARTNEY SURPRISES LONDON FANS

People who lunch at Covent Garden are used to jugglers, mimes and street musicians vying for their attention _ and a spare coin or two _ but Friday's performer didn't bother to pass the hat.

Sir Paul McCartney doesn't need the money. But he apparently still needs the thrill of a live performance and the applause of adoring fans.

The ubiquitous former Beatle gave a surprise free performance from the back of a truck, livening up the lunch hour for workers and tourists alike.

"Yeah, I was having a sandwich at my desk and I clicked on a site and I saw it and I came down and it was listed for one o'clock, and so I thought by the time I got here I wouldn't be able to get too close. But, yeah, I got here at about quarter past one and managed to get a good spot and I thought it was great," said Doug, an office worker from north London.

"We were in the area just eating down the road and we heard about it on Twitter half an hour ago and we came down," said Graeme Turnville, from Stamford, UK, who was visiting London for the day.

McCartney performed tracks from his latest album "New" before thousands who gathered in the famous market square in central London.

Word about the show had spread throughout the British capital since the singer's crew started setting up speakers early Friday.

After the performance McCartney signed copies of his new album at a nearby record store.

MCARTNEY WINGS IT INTO CANNES

==============================

Cheering crowds greeted Paul McCartney who is in Cannes to showcase a television documentary on his second most famous band, Wings.

The documentary accompanies the release of a new retrospective album, "Wingspan", a two-part compilation that combines Wings' Greatest Hits - among them "Mull of Kintyre", "Jet," and "Band on the Run" - and a second disc of lesser-known songs that document the band's history.

It's directed by McCartney's son-in-law, Alistair Donald.

The two-hour film, to be aired in the U-S on Friday by ABC, features McCartney home movies and the former Beatle giving a candid interview to his daughter, Mary.

In the film, McCartney also talks about his near breakdown after The Beatles split and of his spell in a Japanese jail.

He also reveals how he set about rebuilding his music career from scratch.

At a press conference earlier this week, McCartney denied reports that he was planning to marry his new partner Heather Mills.

STORYLINE:

PAUL McCARTNEY SETS DATE FOR WEDDING TO HEATHER MILLS

PAUL McCARTNEY announced that he's set a date for his wedding to fiancee HEATHER MILLS at an Amnesty International soiree to present him with a Lifetime Achievement Award last night (29JAN02) - but said he's not telling when it will be.

The event, held at the Chelsea Piers in New York City, also honoured the author of the Vagina Monologues, EVE ENSLER.

Paul arrived with fiancee Heather Mills to the event at the Chelsea Piers in New York and when asked about their upcoming marriage, and if they had set a date, coyly told APTN "We have but we're not telling you!" Heather has been busy promoting her duties as spokes model for the INC. clothing line.

SALMA HAYEK also was on hand to honor Digna Ochoa, a Mexican Human Rights attorney who was recently murdered for her work. Salma also talked to APTN about her work in the movie based on the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo's life.

She told APTN that she is very happy with her performance. Julie Taymor directed the flick and Salma told APTN that she was very happy working with her.

Other honorees included EVE ENSLER, who created the female show, "The Vagina Monologues", newsman TED KOPPEL for his reporting of human rights abuses on ABC's "Nightline" , and HODA KOTBE, a "Dateline" NBC correspondent, for her work on several human rights stories, to name a few.

The event was hosted by DONNA HANOVER, the former wife of the former NY City Mayor Rudi Giuliani. Co-chairs of the event included BIANCA JAGGER, Phyllis and Paul Firemanm Arnold Hiatt and Willa Shalit.

Throughout his life, Paul McCartney has used his status both as a musician and public figure to raise awareness of critical social issues. He has worked on campaigns such as those championing animal rights, a ban on landmines, freedom for Tibet and an end to world hunger.

Past honorees include Muhammad Ali, Christiane Amanpour, Richard Gere, Harrison Ford, Arthur Miller, Danny Glover and Trudie Styler. The event was created 5 years ago to salute those in the media and entertainment industries who have done exemplary work in the name of human rights. The event also marked the organization's 40th anniversary.

The annual media spotlight awards honor, acknowledge and encourage the contribution of courageous and principled journalists, filmmakers, writers, musicians, and actors who educate the public about human rights through their work.

TITLE:PAUL MCCARTNEY POETRY

LOCATION: LIVERPOOL

DATE: 21 MARCH, 2001

SIR PAUL McCARTNEY was greeted by thousands of fans when he returned to his home town of Liverpool, yesterday, to unveil his latest artistic project, a book of poems.

A crowd of around 3,000 queued for signed copies of BLACKBIRD SINGING, McCartney's own poetry anthology, at a city centre book seller. Sir Paul told APTN it was always "lovely" to come back to Liverpool. Later that evening he performed some of his verses at a local theatre.

Some die-hard fans, from as far a field as Poland, Japan and the USA, braved the bitter cold for over 24 hours to secure their places at the head of the signing queue and several broke down and wept with emotion after their brief moment with the pop legend.

Sir Paul took up writing poetry eight years ago following the death of a childhood friend but has never before performed them in public.

The poems, which include some of the classic lyrics from the Beatles' vast anthology, span McCartney's life. From early memories of Liverpool to the 1980 murder of John Lennon and moving elegies to his wife Linda who died to breast cancer in 1998, they give a unique insight into the inner life of popular culture's most important figures.

Sir Paul declined invitations to read at the Royal National Theatre in London and at the Los Angeles Festival in favour of a hometown gig on Merseyside.

He admitted to a dose of first night nerves before the performance, alongside playwright Willy Russell, the Blackbird Singing's editor Adrian Mitchell, and Newcastle poet Tom Pickard.

Sir Paul has also been painting for the past 20 years, but only went public with an exhibition in Germany in May 1999 followed by shows in London and New York.

The former Beatle said he was not worried about the critics' response to his poems.

"The critics are always mixed with me," he said. "I always say they sharpen their pencils when they see me coming. But I don't care, you know, they criticized 'Sergeant Pepper' and look what happened to that."

"Blackbird Singing" is scheduled for release in the United States April 24.

McCARTNEY BEAMS UP 'SUNSHINE'

It was a 'Good Day Sunshine' for the international space station crew Sunday morning. NASA astronaut Bill McArthur and Russian cosmonaut Valery Tokarev were treated to a live wake-up call of the Beatles classic in a first-ever concert linkup to the space station.

On Earth, former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney performed the hit and another song, 'English Tea,' on Saturday night before a cheering crowd in Anaheim, California, as part of his 11-week US tour.

The performance was beamed from the West Coast to the space station crew 220 miles above Earth and broadcast on NASA television, which showed live feeds from space.

McArthur and Tokarev bobbed up and down and sipped tea from squeeze pouches as McCartney serenaded the space explorers.

"I can't believe that we're actually transmitting to space!" McCartney said. "This is sensational. I love it."

McArthur, who did a couple flips, noted McCartney's creative achievements and thanked him for playing the songs.

"That was simply magnificent," McArthur said. "We consider you an explorer just as we are."

It is a tradition to wake astronauts up with recorded songs, but this marked the first time astronauts listened to live music from space.

The rock icon came up with the idea after learning that NASA's Mission Control used 'Good Day Sunshine' to wake up the Space Shuttle Discovery astronauts in August with word that conditions were favourable to return to Earth.

The wake-up call marked the space station crew's 44th day of a planned six month mission in space.

MR AND MRS McCARTNEY OFF WITH A BANG

Sir Paul McCartney and Heather Mills jetted off on their honeymoon today following a dramatic firework display at the remote Irish castle where they were married.

The 300 guests waved the couple off following a lavish celebration at the 1,000 acre 17th century estate of Castle Leslie, Co Monaghan.

Three years after the couple first met, Sir Paul and his new bride tied the knot in a 4.30pm ceremony yesterday at the picturesque San Salvator's church, Glaslough, conducted by the Venerable Cecil Pringle, Archdeacon of Clogher.

As befits a wedding for one of the world's best known songwriters, his bride entered the 17th century church to the strains of a bridal march, set to the song 'Heather' which McCartney penned for his recent album 'Driving Rain'.

Heather carried a bouquet of 11 McCartney roses, named in honour of her new husband, and two peonies.

And as the beaming pair walked down the aisle after the formal part of the ceremony, the organ played the Wedding March from the film 'The Family Way', for which Sir Paul wrote the soundtrack in the 60s.

Guests included Beatles drummer Ringo Starr and the band's producer Sir George Martin, commonly known as the fifth Beatle, as well as Pink Floyd guitarist Dave Gilmour.

Sir Paul's 1969 Marylebone register office wedding to late wife Linda saw none of The Beatles invited.

The ceremony was followed by a reception featuring five bands.

The Irish location was chosen because his mother Mary Patricia Mohin, who died when her musician son was just 14, lived in nearby Castleblaney, Co Monaghan and was raised there before moving to Liverpool at the age of 11.

A spokesman for Sir Paul said: "The ceremony was joyful and moving. Heather captured the hearts of the congregation when, overcome by the emotion of the occasion, she briefly faltered and wept tears of joy whilst making her vows."

Sir Paul's brother Mike was best man, a role he carried out at the Marylebone wedding three decades ago, and wore a brown three-piece suit with a pink-red McCartney rose buttonhole.

Heather, who was eight minutes late, was given away by her sister Fiona Mills and wore a fitted ecru lace dress which she designed herself. It was made by Eavis & Brown.

Heather's hair was styled by Amanda Amos from Brighton and her makeup was by Mathew Alexander of Michael John.

Instead of a traditional reading the couple's friend, poet Adrian Mitchell, read 'Roses In The Summertime', a poem he wrote specially for the newlyweds.

Hymns at the 30-minute service were 'Praise My Soul The King of Heaven' and 'Lord Of All Hopefulness'.

Sir Paul and his new bride had been keen to keep the event under wraps, but news of the location leaked out and the estate owner let the date slip.Preparations had been continuing for days to ensure it was all to the couple's specifications.

Sir Paul, 59, and his 34-year-old bride arrived on Sunday and posed for photographs outside the castle grounds on Monday.

He said then: "We would just like to thank all the people who have wished us good wishes and who have written to us."

The pair are believed to have turned down a �1.5 million offer for the rights to the wedding photos from a glossy magazine.

The ceremony ended with a peel of bells from the church which rang out across the grounds and indicated to onlookers that the pair were now husband and wife.

Guests, who also included former Pretenders star Chrissie Hynde, a good friend of Linda and a fellow animal campaigner, dined on an Indian-themed vegetarian breakfast.

Sir Paul had bought the engagement ring in India as he and Heather enjoyed a holiday in Rajasthan, but he waited until they took a break in the Lake District last year until he popped the question.

They wanted the ceremony to be private but agreed to release an official photograph in return for donations to the charity Adopt-A-Minefield UK. Heather, who lost a leg when hit by a police motorbike, has campaigned for a number of years for landmine victims.

Heavy rain fell throughout much of the day but the couple avoided the downpours by heading from the castle, where they were staying, to the church under a specially-constructed covered walkway.

Several marquees were set up in the extensive grounds of the estate to accommodate the revellers, who also included relatives of Linda.

A spectacular firework display later took place for the guests who included Sir Paul's children Stella, Mary and James and his stepdaughter Heather, from Linda's first marriage.

Around 500 local people had gathered to see the five minute show, which illuminated the village of Glaslough.

Following the dramatic display, gentle and romantic music drifted from the estate.

Shortly afterwards, a helicopter took off from the castle estate believed to be carrying Sir Paul and Ms Mills. The luxury helicopter circled the estate before heading to Belfast International Airport where the couple were expected to depart on their honeymoon.

According to some press reports the couple, now Sir Paul and Lady McCartney, were said to have signed a �20 million pre-nuptial deal should the marriage end in divorce. The UK Daily Mail alleged that Sir Paul, though to be worth �700 million (USD$1billion) had bowed to pressure from daughter Stella, who is thought to have opposed the marriage. However, the reports were today denied by Sir Paul's spokesman.

Sir Paul McCartney was saluted for his four decades of songwriting on Thursday by taking a major title at a top composers' awards ceremony in Britain.

The Beatles legend was given a fellowship by the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters at the annual Ivor Novello Awards in London.

Sir Paul's honour of an Academy Fellowship was the first to have been handed out, but BACS chairman Guy Fletcher said they were in no doubt as to who should receive it.

Sir Paul, he said, had had a "major role in changing the course of British popular music" and was "an exemplary role model for young people the world over".

The former Beatle was given a minute-long standing ovation and said it was a great honour to be given the award.

He said: "I remember coming here the very first time with my mates John, George and Ringo and sitting back there, just little kids we were, younger than my kids are now.

"It was just fantastic to be part of this whole song writing thing. It was always just the greatest award, the greatest thing to get for song writers and it still is many years later."

The star, whose song "Yesterday" is the most recorded track of all time, said he had been watching the movie Amadeus and watching scenes of Mozart composing had brought home his own role in creating music.

"I remember welling up and thinking 'I'm one of them, I'm in that tradition', maybe not like Mozart but I'm in that tradition. Everyone who's ever had a hit is so proud to be part of it."

Travis also had reason to celebrate after taking two of the biggest titles following the band's hugely successful year.

The double Brit-winners' single "Why Does It Always Rain On Me?" was named best contemporary song, while its author, Fran Healy, was named songwriter of the year.

Last year the band's breakthrough second album, "The Man Who", was the best-selling Long Player by a U-K act.

Fran Healy looked overjoyed as he picked up his two prizes for the songs he has written with Travis and paid tribute to his band mates.

"Thanks to three of the most important people in my life - Neil Primrose, Andy Dunlop and Dougie Payne - they're my best friends and my band members. "We've been together for 10 years, it's a long time, and it's been rubbish

most of the time. And when it's rubbish the ones that prop you up are your best friends and I'm lucky to be in a band with them."

On his second visit to the stage he also thanked his mother Marian and girlfriend Nora.

Robbie Williams, who won two titles last year, carried off another with writing partner Guy Chambers for "Strong", which was named this year's best song musically and lyrically.

Other big winners included the band Madness, who reformed last year and were rewarded for their outstanding song collection.

Pet Shop Boys stars Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe were praised for their outstanding contribution to British music.

Guests at the event included Sir Paul, Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox, Lulu and funk legend Bootsy Collins.

Also there was Sir Elton John - with partner David Furnish - who was rewarded for his contribution to "The Lion King" stage show, which took an award for international achievement in musical theatre.

Robbie Williams was not at the event in London's Grosvenor House Hotel and his award was picked up by song-writing partner Guy Chambers.

BEATLES VERSUS EMI

Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and relatives of their Beatles' bandmates are suing EMI to recover what they claim is more than 30 million pounds (euro44 million, US$53 million) in unpaid royalties, their company said Friday.

McCartney, Starr and relatives of John Lennon and George Harrison are pursuing the case both in New York and London.

"We have tried to reach a settlement through good faith negotiations and regret that our efforts have been in vain," said Neil Aspinall, who heads Apple Corps Ltd.

"Despite very clear provisions in our contracts, EMI persists in ignoring their obligations and duty to account fairly and with transparency," Aspinall said.

EMI declined to comment on the case.

Family and friends of Linda McCartney gathered in New York on Monday to say good-bye to the animal rights activist, photographer and wife of the former Beatle.

Sir Paul McCartney arrived in a limousine for the evening service that celebrated the life of his wife, who died of breast cancer in April.

Guests at the service included musicians Paul Simon and Chrissie Hynde, film director Mike Nichols and designer Ralph Lauren.

The family held the New York memorial in part because Linda McCartney was born in the New York City suburb of Scarsdale.

About 400 mourners attended the service.

Fans stood outside the church watching guests arriving.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"I love Paul, I loved Linda, and I wanted to be a part of this to, you know, because it's in her memory and I wanted to make sure I did something to commemorate her life, to be a part of it."

SUPER CAPTION: Voxpop

A similar memorial held two weeks ago in London brought together the three surviving Beatles - McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison.

They didn't attend this service at historic Riverside Church in Manhattan.

The McCartneys announced in December 1995 that Linda McCartney had breast cancer.

In March the cancer was found to have spread to her liver and she died at the family's

ranch in Arizona on April 19.

Her ashes were scattered on the family farm south of London.

McCARTNEY PROMOTES KIDS BOOK

Sir Paul McCartney took a break from his U.S. tour to promote his new children's book, "High in the Clouds" on Monday (3 October) afternoon.

Hundreds of fans lined the New York City streets surrounding the Barnes and Nobles bookstore hoping to get autographed copies of the book. Some fans had been camped out since Friday (30 September) hoping to get a little time with McCartney. McCartney worshipers even travelled from as far as Japan and Brazil.

The former Beatle did not disappoint. He arrived on time stopping to greet fans outside of the bookstore. McCartney then took pictures for photographers and signed autographs for 125 lucky fans.

"High In the Clouds," McCartney's first children's book, tells the story of Wirral the squirrel. Wirral is forced to leave his home after the evil Gretsch destroys the land. Wirral vows to find the land of Animalia where animals live without fear. Wirral is joined by Froggo, the hot-air-ballooning frog, Wilhamina, the red squirrel and Rusty the rodent. Soon the group develops a plan to save enslaved animals everywhere - - a mission that is sure to be filled with danger.

McCartney says his love of children's storytelling grew out of his love of classic Disney.

For "High in the Clouds," McCartney reunited with artist Geoff Dunbar. The two worked together on the animated films "Rupert and the Frog Song," "Tuesday" and "Tropic Island Hum" (which features characters from "High in the Clouds").

McCartney joins a growing list of celebrities turned children's book authors. The list includes: Madonna, Jamie Lee Curtis, Carly Simon, John Lithgow and Julie Andrews.

In addition to promoting "High in the Clouds," McCartney plans to finish his "U.S. Tour" which ends in Los Angeles on 30th November 2005.

McCartney's new critically acclaimed album "Chaos and Creation in the Backyard" currently holds the number 16 spot on the Billboard Hot 200 Album chart.

McCARTNEY TO ENTERTAIN SUPERBOWL FANS

SIR PAUL McCARTNEY has given one of the biggest TV performances in America - the half time entertainment in the Superbowl football final Sunday night.

It's a taster of more to come - the former Beatle announced Monday he will start a major tour of the United States in April.

Millions tuned in to watch McCartney play at the New Orleans Superdrome during the 36th Superbowl, as fans across the country watched the match between the St Louis Rams and the New England Patriots.

The 59 year old singer performed 'Freedom', written in the wake of the September 11th terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

The star was in New York at the time of the attacks, and has already played the song at several benefit concerts to raise funds for those affected by the disaster.

The Superbowl half time line up is traditionally spectuacular and this year was no exception. As well as Sir Paul, the bill included Mariah Carey, Mary J Blige and Patti LaBelle.

McCartney has also announced that he will begin his first major tour of Amercia in almost a decade in April.

The 14-date 'Drivin' USA' tour will take the star across the United States from California to New York City. Venue details are to be announced shortly, and will include a stop in Canada.

The tour will promote the recently released 'Driving Rain,' his first album of new material in four years.

The star, who has played more than 600 live concerts during his 40-year career, promised a "show like nothing he has ever staged before."

He released a statement saying "I'm very excited to be getting back on the road, playing a with a new band and including some of the songs that I haven't played live before."

McCartney said he also plans to tour Europe later this year. No dates for that tour have been announced.

Sir Paul McCartney, one time singer, guitarist and song writer with The Beatles, will once again take to the stage of Liverpool's famous Cavern Club, the venue where the "Fab Four" played their first concert in 1961.

Three hundred tickets to the concert were raffled across the globe and those adoring Beatles fans lucky enough to have been selected for this exclusive event will fill the dark underground club in Liverpool on Tuesday night.

While McCartney hasn't played there since 1963, he made a total of 281 appearances at the club while under the management of their late manager and confidante Brian Epstein.

The concert on Tuesday will mark the first time that McCartney has played the legendary Liverpool nightspot since 1963.

It was while at the Cavern Club that The Beatles were first spotted by their future manager Brian Epstein who helped them become arguably the most famous band in the history of popular music.

Although there were only three hundred tickets up for grabs, response from fans all over the world has been staggering.

Many of those who failed to get tickets have travelled thousands of miles to be in Liverpool on Tuesday night.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"I'm getting calls from Russia....Russia !...and people from Australia, somebody called from Argentina and said they were going to come, we said you haven't got a ticket, because we knew they didn't have a ticket, but they said we don't care we're coming anyway, and from Buenos Aires and from America, some couples are flying in from California, and another couple are coming from Tokyo........this is world music, this is rock and roll as world music today because rock and roll is drawing the world to this little place (the Cavern Club)"

SUPER CAPTION: Geoff Baker, spokesman for Paul McCartney

McCartney will be playing material from his newest album, "Run Devil Run," as well as other songs from the likes of Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, and Little Richard.

Also scheduled to join McCartney for the Cavern Club show is Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour, who played on several tracks on "Run Devil Run."

McCartney first played at The Cavern Club with The Beatles at a lunchtime show in February 1961.

Their total fee was five pounds sterling (8 U-S dollars).

This will be his 281st appearance at the club.

McCartney first played the Cavern Club back in 1958 as part of The Quarrymen, forerunners to The Beatles, a group that also included both John Lennon and George Harrison.

Despite the fact that The Beatles split up in 1970, their loyal fan-base has, if anything, increased.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"My official letter came through on Friday or Saturday I think and I'm going in, and I can't wait, it will be the gig of the millennium."

SUPER CAPTION: Ben Lomas, aka John Ono Lennon, Beatles fan

SOUNDBITE: (Japanese)

"I came here with my friend, because he got the tickets, we don't really have any time in the UK, just a three day trip to see Paul McCartney."

SUPER CAPTION: Sumiyo Omori, Beatles fan

The original Cavern was located in the basement of a building that was bulldozed in 1973, filling the club with rubble.

A new club of the same name opened nearby later that year, but it failed and its name was changed.

In 1982, spurred by the fatal shooting of John Lennon in 1980, the city of Liverpool excavated the basement of the original site of the club.

The building's original bricks were either sold off for charity or used in the reconstruction of a larger Cavern Club on the same site as the original venue.

For Dave Jones, the owner of the current Cavern Club, the whole event has been a magical experience.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"It's amazing when you think there must be 30 (m) million Beatles fans in the world and there were 300 tickets and they were free, just the whole thing is a fairy story, but it isn't, it's true."

SUPER CAPTION: Dave Jones, owner of Cavern Club

The Beatles, who hold the record for the most successful group ever, have sold an estimated one (b) billion records and audio tapes, and their popularity shows no sign of waning.

For McCartney himself, fans are always a welcome sight and he insists that Liverpool will always be his real home.

SOUNDBITE: (English)

"Hello...yes, well I'm here..oh my God they're all here, I'm just here to say that it's fantastic to be back here at the Cavern, I've come back because I've done a rock and roll album called "Run Devil Run", and we're plugging it, plug, plug, but what better way to rock out the century, it's where it all began and this is where the century will end, playing rock and roll, which if you remember the Beatles before the Beatles, was a fabulous little rock and roll band and was what held us together for so long and what made us so good I think, he said modestly, I'm back here because I love Liverpool and no more fantastic place to rock out the century, thank you very much for coming, God bless everybody."

SUPER CAPTION: Sir Paul McCartney, musician

Just 300 people will witness the unique event inside the club, but up to 15-thousand will be able to see it on a giant video screen in Liverpool's Chavasse Park and a global audience of (m) millions will be able to see it on the Internet.

I just started to realise that war is one thing, if an army is attacking you, you have got to defend but when the war is over the pity to me is that the war gets left behind with land mines. So at the moments civilians and are getting blown up and I think that isn't brave. That's really my involvement, to persuade armies, civilians and governments of the world that the whole idea of leaving the war behind you is a cowardly idea. That you are finished in an area with your war then you have got to clean it up."

13. SOT Mills - "You individually can make a difference to someone's community and personalise the whole situation. If somebody has a school and it's surrounded by minefields you can give... a small amount of money can change that schools life. When you are talking about millions around the world people say well I can't make a difference and close the page. So I always try to bring down and say that you have now just saved 20 peoples lives who will never be maimed and never be killed because you have cleaned a mine field, so it's always important to bring it back to that."

14. APTN File - Princess Diana in Angola 1997 talking to mine clearer

15. SOT McCartney - "It's something that needs to be re-awoken, you can't let issues like this go to sleep just because you haven't got a high profile celebrity to push them. So Heather and I, that is what we are trying to do now by going to see Colin Powell and give him messages through your question to President Bush. We are hoping to persuade people of the world that this is a cowardly weapon. I think as you said that if people start to believe that... even if it's the guys in the factory, we get enough people like that and then the leaders of the world will change soon enough when people tell them to."

McCARTNEY LAUNCHES ANTI-LANDMINE PUSH

========================================

Former Beatle PAUL McCARTNEY and his partner HEATHER MILLS have launched a new campaign to clear minefields from countries recovering from war.

The couple were at BAFTA in London to unveil a new charity, and screen the first showing of a documentary they have made about the trauma inflicted by the still active weapons.

Heather Mills took a television crew to Croatia in April to make the film, while McCartney provides the commentary.

The new British charity dedicated to the cause is Adopt-A-Minefield UK. McCartney and Mills are it's patrons, and have adopted a 16,000 square metre site in Paula Dvor, East Croatia.

The problem there is so bad that residents have been unable to visit the heavily mined village cemetery for ten years.

By adopting the area, they fund the programme to clear out the mines.

The charity also raises money for landmine survivors.

The launch drew more than 160 guests to celebrate the charity's launch. The event also announced the winner of a UK competition for children to design posters depicting the horror of the landmine threat.

The charity says more than 60 million landmines may still be hidden in the ground in 70 countries, and every year an estimated 26,000 people are killed or injured as a result - as many as a third of whom are children.

Until her death in 1997, Diana, the Princess of Wales, was the world figurehead for the anti-landmine cuase.

The Adopt-A-Minefield movement was first launched in America, and has raised �2.5 million (Sterling) for mine clearance and survivor assistance through campaigning in the USA, Canada and UK.

Eighty minefields have been adopted, and almost half of those have now been cleared.

1. Sir Paul McCartney arrives at the show

2. Sir Paul McCartney taking his seat.

British designers took the catwalks of Paris by storm again on Thursday as they unveiled their new looks for the season.

Alexander McQueen wowed the audience at Givenchy while Stella McCartney once again proved herself the darling of the Paris fashion scene, after unveiling her latest collection.

Waking down the catwalk to watch his daughters new collection Sir Paul McCartney looked every inch the proud father.

Amongst other celebrities taking their places in the front row seats of the Chloe show was Camilla Parker-Bowles - close friend of Britain's Prince Charles.

Renowned for her sexy shows, Stella kept up the theme with lots of see-through lace tops and silky skirts.

Even the conventional suit was given a touch of glamour by adding lace detail to the jacket.

Plain trousers were dressed up with eastern-style silk short sleeved tops and Paris fashion week gave Stella the chance to showcase her new funky boots - a non-leather version of the nineties phenomenon.

In the two years that Stella McCartney has been designing for Paris fashion house Chloe, sales have rocketed by five hundred percent.

If this - her fourth collection - is as successful as the others, that figure is set to go even higher.

Meanwhile another British designer Alexander McQueen was making his mark on the Paris fashion scene.

The enfant terrible of fashion used fur trim to add luxury to the clinical white suits.

But showed his sense of humour with clingy leather cat suits as well as sci-fi futuristic skin tight suits covered in flashing lights.

With this show the bad boy of British fashion secured his place in the respected world of Parisian couture.

STORY: CHLOE BOUTIQUE

LOCATION:NEW YORK

DATE: SEPTEMBER 8TH '99

New York belonged to STELLA MCCARTNEY last night. The daughter of PAUL MCCARTNEY was in town for the opening of her stylish new boutique in the Big Apple.

But while it was Stella's night, all eyes were on two of her celebrity guests. Because while MADONNA turned up to show her support for the new Chloe Boutique, already at the party was SEAN PENN, her former husband in a shortlived, volatile marriage.

After their acrimonious split, Madonna was filmed in the movie, IN BED WITH MADONNA, confessing that Penn was still the true love of her life.

Sadly the two didn't have a chance to spend much time together because Sean, now married to actress ROBIN WRIGHT, left quickly.

Also at the party was proud dad Paul and rocker LENNY KRAVITZ, who has been romantically linked to Stella.

And there was a blast from the past with the appearance of TWIGGY, the British model who was so much part of Swinging London in the 1960s. One of today's supermodels AMBER VALETTA also put in an appearance.

Since taking over as designer on the French Chloe label, Stella has proved she is chip of the old block when it comes to innovation and talent.

Her fresh, young designs have been hailed a triumph on the Paris catwalks and she is at the forefront of the British invasion of the French fashion world.

Dad Paul and the late LINDA MCCARTNEY proved themselves proud parents and often attended her shows, beaming from the front row.

The Chloe boutique in New York is a confident sign of the successful direction the young designer has taken the clothes line. Certainly if you have the likes of Madonna as a fan then you are doing very well indeed.

"In about three weeks time these baby seals are due to be clubbed to death or shot in what is known as the seal hunt. For many years people have been trying to have this brutal practise stopped but we are out here to see if we can lend our voice to this campaign and maybe get it stopped once and for all."

4. CA Heather McCartney

5. SOUNDBITE Paul McCartney:

"You will hear that the reason why the seal hunt has to go on is that the seals eat the cod and therefore deplete the supplies of cod in the area, therefore ruining the fishermen's living, but in actual fact that isn't true. It's over fishing that has lead to the demise of the cod and these harp seals actually eat some of the predators of the cod so they are part of a very delicate eco-balance."

6. MS Paul and Heather

7. SOUNDBITE Paul McCartney:

"The Canadian people have been polled and asked what they think of the seal hunt and the majority of the Canadian people are opposed to it so it's not their fault. It's just an old tradition that has gone on for a long time and it's time it stopped."

HEATHER AND PAUL McCARTNEY SPEAK OUT FOR SEALS

A fluffy, doe-eyed seal pup looked dazed and mewed as Paul and Heather McCartney rolled around with it on an ice floe.

When the week-old baby seal snapped at the former Beatle and his wife - both longtime animal-rights activists - they told the creature that they were there to help, and lamented that it could be clubbed to death in Canada's annual seal hunt.

Animal rights activists contend that killing the seal pups, who are typically clubbed to death or pierced with boat hooks, is barbaric and unnecessary. Local fishermen and federal officials say seals are abundant and they badly need the income.

The McCartneys, dressed in orange thermal jumpsuits, took helicopters with a dozen journalists and members of the Humane Society of the United States and the British-based Respect for Animals, to the Gulf of St. Lawrence, where the temperature was some 20 below zero Fahrenheit (minus-7 Celsius).

Hundreds of seals and their fluffy, days-old pups were lolling on the ice as their mothers taking breaks from nursing to bob in the water to fish. The pups will shed their white fur within two weeks, when they become game for fishermen, who get up to $70 (euro59) apiece for a pelt and blubber. The largest markets are in Norway, China and Russia.

McCartney implored fishermen to turn instead to ecotourism activities,such as whale watching, as communities have done along the Atlantic Coast.

Those that argue for the right to hunt say the seals are not endangered and their population of 5 to 6 million animals was strong. Some 15,000 fishermen, who earn an average of $30,000 to $40,000 (euro25,000 to euro33,500) a year, can earn up to $10,000 (euro8,400) each during the two-week hunt.

The United States has banned Canadian seal products since 1972 and the European Union banned white baby seal pelts in 1983. The British government is also considering banning seal goods. Respect for Animals and the Humane Society of the United States, which coordinated the McCartneys' visit, are also encouraging a boycott of Canadian seafood.

The government endorses the hunt as a cultural right and announced a management plan in 2003 with a quota of 975,000 seals over three years. About 325,000 seal pups were killed last year, bringing local fishermen $14.5 million (euro12.2 million), which they say their families badly need. The start of this spring's hunt has yet to be announced as mild temperatures have made the ice thin.

The Federal Fisheries have said Canada would not terminate the hunt, insisting it is the most regulated mammal harvest in the world. Aboriginal and Inuit hunters begin the kill Nov. 15 in Canada's frozen northern waters, from the Yukon Territories near Alaska through the Arctic Ocean and the North Atlantic off Newfoundland and Labrador.

The spring hunt starts in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and moves to the Front, an arc of the Atlantic Ocean sweeping out 30-40 miles (50 to 65 kilometers) from Newfoundland.

STORY: Paul McCartney

LOCATION: New York

DATE: 2 November, 2000

Paul McCartney has attended the first public exhibition of his paintings in the United States. The former beatle is showing works of art he's created over the last 15 years.

Close friends including STEVE BUSCEMI, AIDAN QUINN and BARBARA WALTERS were on hand to join McCartney for his artistic debut in New York. The model HEATHER MILLS, the singer's girlfriend, was also there to lend moral support.

He is selling lithographs of three of his paintings to raise money for Cancer research, though he will not sell the original canvasses. Those are to remain in his private collection.

The signed prints will sell for $1750 (US) each. There are 200 copies of three separate prints, including one he calls "Egypt Station", a colourful work featuring a ram with long curled horns, and another called "Big Mountain's face".

Most of McCartney's paintings focus on faces and landscapes. He particularly enjoyed using his wife Linda as a subject, explaining each picture of her captures some part of her personality on the canvas.

While most of his paintings are expressionistic some are whimsical.

While McCartney looked excited to be featured as an artist, he had very little to say to reporters and was rather humble when asked what he thought about his work on canvas... and about his new love.

15 paintings are on display at the Matthew Marks Gallery in Manhattan. They'll be on show until next week.

Also on sale at the gallery is McCartney's book "Paintings", which contains images of 80 of the singer's paintings.

STORYLINE:

Former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney, who lost his first wife to cancer three years ago, is engaged to be married to Heather Mills, an activist for landmine victims and other disabled people, his office announced Thursday.

Fifty-nine year old McCartney proposed on Monday during a trip to Britain's Lake District, his spokesman said.

McCartney has three grown children and a stepdaughter from his first marriage.

He was knighted in 1997.

Thirty-three year old Mills, a former swimwear model, had her left leg amputated below the knee after she was run down by a police motorcyclist in 1993.

The two met at a charity function when Mills appealed for help for her own foundation, the Heather Mills Trust, which provides limbs for victims of war around the world.

The two plan to marry sometime next year.

"I'll do it as long as they like it and I like it. "

STORYLINE:

Fans gathered in the French capital on Sunday to celebrate the 64th birthday of Sir Paul McCartney, an age he immortalised in song decades ago.

"When I get older, losing my hair, many years from now," sang Paul McCartney on "When I'm 64," a jaunty tune from The Beatles' famous "Sergeant Pepper" album.

The pop legend is said to have written "When I'm Sixty-Four" for his father and it was released by The Beatles on the 1967 album Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

He could be excused for skipping a party. It has been a traumatic year that saw the former Beatle split from his wife, Heather Mills, after only four years.

And with old age beckoning, he celebrates a lifetime of stellar achievement, flecked with personal tragedy.

James Paul McCartney was born to working class parents on June 18, 1942. He had a happy childhood with one younger brother, Michael, until his mother's sudden death from breast cancer when he was 14.

Shortly afterwards, he wrote his first song, and a few months later he met John Lennon during the latter's performance at a local church fete (festival).

McCartney soon joined Lennon's band, the Quarrymen, and with the eventual addition of George Harrison and Pete Best, the band morphed into the Beatles.

The band honed their skills and mop head style in the music dives on Hamburg's notorious waterfront and then the band returned to Liverpool and soon became a top local act.

After replacing drummer Best with Ringo Starr, and under the tutelage of producer George Martin, the Beatles soon became an international hit-making phenomenon, influencing everything from fashion to politics.

In April 1970, McCartney announced the Fab Four's breakup. He was 27 years old.

At the same time he begun his marriage to Linda McCartney that was to last nearly 30 years and produce three children.

He was a solo artist from then onwards, except for occasional collaborations with wife Linda and writers such as Elvis Costello.

In 1995, he was working on a new pop album, 'Flaming Pie,' when his wife, Linda, was diagnosed with breast cancer.

In April 1998, Linda McCartney died of breast cancer, and Paul McCartney spent much of the next year away from the public eye, emerging only to campaign on behalf of his late wife for animal rights and vegetarian causes.

McCartney also slowly returned to the public spotlight, embarking on a romantic relationship with ex-model and disabled rights activist Heather Mills (who herself lost a leg in a road accident).

Yet there was also sadness, as George Harrison died of cancer in early December, 2001.

McCartney and Heather Mills married in Ireland in 2002. The couple's daughter, Beatrice, was born in the autumn of 2003.

Currently in Las Vegas, Nevada for a preview of the forthcoming Cirque du Soleil production inspired by The Beatles music. The veteran singer, hopes to return to England this week to celebrate his birthday with his four children.

MCCARTNEY SAYS BONJOUR TO PARIS

Paul McCartney is in Paris for his first concert at the famous Olympia theater since his appearance with Wings in 1974.

The 65-year-old former Beatle first performed at the theatre in 1964, when a concert by The Beatles caused havoc in the streets of the French capital.

He returned to the theatre - the venue that made Edith Piaf famous - nearly a decade later with Wings, the group that gave him a new life on the stage in the post-Beatles era.

This time, hundreds of people camped out overnight braving cold weather (5C during the night) in front of Olympia theatre, to get one of 2,000 tickets for the concert. Theatre staff opened up a snack bar offering chocolate bars and drinks for the McCartney fans.

The tickets cost 55 euros (78 US dollars) and 77 euros (109 US dollars) and were sold out the same day.

McCartney's latest album "Memory Almost Full" was released in June.

He told a Paris press conference Monday that the inspiration for the title came from a phrase he saw on his cell phone.

"I like the phrase : "Memory Almost full", because it seems symbolic of a life today, I think that life moves so fast. Not just for me, but to many people. Your messages are always full and your mind is full. It doesn't matter if you have my age or twenty. I think we need to delete stuff, like I need to delete my messages, and we don't need to delete the facts now, just to clear your mind. So that was what I meant, that was like symbolic of how we live. So it's nothing to do with my memory".

Paul McCartney also says we all need to make room in our minds for some new memories.

Dressed casually in jeans and sneakers, McCartney treated the press to a concert preview of "Let It Be" and "Lady Madonna," singing and playing the piano.

He reminisced about visiting Paris with John Lennon before they were world renowned.

"I think the only time we came to the Olympia was when we played here. It was too expensive so we went to a little dirty dance hall instead," he said.

McCartney also answered questions about his decision earlier this year to leave EMI Records for a deal with Hear Music, a start-up label launched by coffee retailer Starbucks Corp. and Concord Music Group.

The singer was fed up with the lack of responsiveness by record companies as music distribution changed. In the United States, he said, "supermarkets started to sell it ... So the business was changing, everything was changing. I started to think that the record companies didn't know how to deal with it and they were getting boring and jaded," he said.

"If you're among 300 artists whose album is coming out, they have no time for you," he added.

McCartney was less talkative about his messy divorce with model Heather Mills.

"We are here to talk about music," a press officer said. "Artistic questions and only artistic questions are welcome."

It was arise Sir Paul McCartney when he was knighted by Britain's Queen Elizabeth on Tuesday.

He joked after the ceremony how former Beatles George Harrison and Ringo Starr now call him "Your Holiness".

Sir Paul said receiving his knighthood at Buckingham Palace was one of the best days of his eventful life.

Sir Paul McCartney was wearing a conservative dark suit with tails for the investiture - the knighting ceremony - at London's Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

But his mood was anything but dark as he displayed the symbol of his new title to fans and news crews from around the world.

UPSOT:

"Wonderful glorious day for us all, it's a long way from the terrace in Liverpool."

SUPER CAPTION: Sir Paul McCartney

The ex-Beatle had arrived at the Palace earlier in the passenger seat of his chauffeur- driven blue Mercedes limousine.

But the 54-year-old pop legend came without his wife Linda, who is recovering from a cancer scare, or any of their four children.

Hundreds of fans screamed and waved British flags in scenes almost reminiscent of 1960s Beatlemania.

Some had come from Liverpool's School of Performing Arts - which McCartney helped to set up.

The college - modelled on New York's so-called "Fame" school was opened last June by Queen Elizabeth.

UPSOT: SINGING

Some of the fans gathered outside Buckingham Palace on Tuesday had been waiting since the early morning in the hope of seeing Sir Paul.

Their patience was well rewarded.

SOUNDBITE:

"I just think Paul McCartney deserves this honour that he's getting today."

Question: "Did you see him?"

Answer: "I did see him Yeah."

Question: "Did he wave to you?"

Answer: "He did, He waved to us all."

SUPER CAPTION: VOX POP

SOUNDBITE:

"Because Paul McCartney is absolutely fantastic and I wouldn't be anywhere else but here today for his special day."

SUPER CAPTION: VOX POP

Paul McCartney received his knighthood for services to music and charity over the last thirty years - including the creation of the Liverpool "Fame" school.

FORMER BEATLE IN NEW YORK FOR ALBUM SIGNING

Hundreds of Paul McCartney fans gathered at the Virgin Megastore in Times Square to meet their favourite former Beatle.

McCartney made a special appearance to promote his new DVD, titled 'Paul McCartney: The Space Within Us,' as well as his new album, 'Paul McCartney's Ecce Cor Meum.'

McCartney has made headlines lately as he and his soon-to-be ex, Heather Mills McCartney have been going through a very public and nasty divorce.

Despite the negative headlines, most Sir Paul fans say they will always love the musician.

"I feel really bad for him," fan Geoffrey DeCesar says.

"Even if you are rich and famous you can still be lonely and unhappy. I will be glad for him when it is all over with."

While McCartney gears up for his divorce battle, he has also been keeping busy with his music.

'Ecce Cor Meum (Behold My Heart)' is McCartney's fourth classical album.

The disc is scored by an orchestra and choir. The music is a combination of English and Latin.

For Paul, the Latin was not a problem - He studied the language while he was a student at The Liverpool Institute High School for Boys.

IS MACCA DATING PRINCE CHARLES' EX?

Could Sir Paul McCartney be dating again? According to newspaper reports the ex-Beatle has been spotted out with society heiress Sabrina Guinness, 52, who dated Prince Charles in the 1970s.

Sabrina, daughter of aristocrat James Guinness, has also dated fellow rockers Mick Jagger, Bryan Ferry and Rod Stewart. But it was her romance with Charles which really thrust her into the limelight. The two remain firm friends with Sabrina a guest at his wedding to Camilla Parker Bowles.

Sir Paul - single since his split from Heather Mills last year - invited Sabrina to join him, his fashion designer daughter Stella, 35, and her husband Alasdhair Willis, 36, for dinner in an Italian restaurant in Notting Hill, West London on Wednesday evening (MAR22). But after picking her up in his chauffeur driven Lexus, the couple were spotted by paparazzi, and Sir Paul instead dropped Sabrina off at an address half a mile up the road.

A friend of the singer hints to The Sun newspaper, "It has been difficult, but Paul's dealt with his divorce with great dignity.

"His friends are desperate to get him to go out and start living again. People like Sabrina are making this possible."

However, a spokesperson for McCartney said: "There's no relationship. There's nothing to it."

Sabrina spends much of her time working for Youth Culture TV, a charity which she founded to steer young people away from life on the dole. She and Sir Paul are also supporting a charity project with US presidential hopeful Al Gore.

18. SOUNDBITE (English) Stella McCartney: "Sexy isn't always on the outside too, it can be on the inside. So this collection was a little bit more about, you know, just having windows into the sexiness, using transparency and layering, shadowing."

MACCA AND MOSS MAKE UP FAMOUS FRONT ROW AT STELLA MCCARTNEY

"Palatable, everyday." That's how Stella McCartney, backstage, describes her fresh, optimistic and relaxed spring-summer outing.

If she hoped the collection to be everyday, the show itself, in the gilded foyer of the Paris Opera Garnier with ornate, swinging double chandeliers in gold, not to mention the famous faces like Kate Moss, Salma Hayek and McCartney's former Beatle father Paul, was not.

It's hard to be casual when you were born with one of the most famous dads on the planet, but she got full marks for trying.

Silhouettes ignored the waist, with a cool, low-slung belted vibe, and the big curves of last season were gone.

Thinking outside the box, McCartney created some fantastic elliptical curves in vibrant saffron yellow and forest green. With delicate dense knife pleats these ellipses visually sculpted a feminine shape that was highly flattering to busts and waists, like a geometric hourglass.

Some of the broderie anglaise looks added a play on transparency, but the best of the show came with an on-trend safari theme.

Black and white camouflage print looked fantastic on a silky jumpsuit, worn by sassy model of the moment Karlie Kloss.

This look wasn't exactly everyday, but it's sure going to sell.

I'm basically asking the people who are going to read your newspapers and going to watch your telecast to understand that land mines are a cowardly weapon. They leave the war behind when the soldiers go home and the lives of the people that they destroy are civilians. So I want people all over the world to agree with me and say you know I think what he's saying is right, that we ought to ban land mines. In the meantime we want to clear them and so we want your help to clear every single land mine that is in the world and we want to help the people that are victims of these terrible weapons. So that's what we are here for this evening, we're going to have a great evening. Thank you all for coming and ban land mines."

Some food is not going to be enough and information on land mines, unless they have an understanding of it which of course they will after tonight, then you are not going to spend that sort of money to come and watch that."

HEATHER AND PAUL TAKE MINES MESSAGE TO HOLLYWOOD

===================================================

Stars of the music world strummed their guitars in the name of charity, on Thursday night (June14), at a celebrity benefit in Los Angeles. Living legend, Sir Paul McCartney, played a special set with Paul Simon to help raise money to clear land mines from war-torn areas.

McCartney arrived for the benefit with his long-term girlfriend Heather Mills. The pair were in town to promote the Adopt-a-land mine campaign previously headed by Princess Diana.

Its goal is to rid the world of all land mines and the pair are calling for their abolition.

Heather, who is heavily involved with the charity and encouraged McCartney's participation was on hand to present an award to a Yugoslav war veteran, Jzike, who lost a leg to a mine.

It is believed that there are still 60-70 million unexploded landmines in 70 different countries. Sadly, it's mostly children and civilians who fall victim to their horrific effects. According to statistics, at least 75 percent of all landmines remain in the ground long after the war has ended as a lethal reminder of the conflict.

A third of all victims survive but suffer the loss of at least one limb.

Mills, who lost her leg in a car accident, is passionate about the subject and she, along with the help of her famous partner, is set on raising awareness on the subject. She wants to finish the job that the late Priness Diana started.

The benefit attracted a host of stars, mainly from the music world, and included Sheryl Crow and Who frontman Roger Daltrey. They came to donate their time and money and support their pal Paul.

The evening included dinner and dancing with tickets on sale for $50,000 dollars a table. For that price the audience had a right to expect some entertainment and that is exactly what they got when McCartney and singer Paul Simon performed together for the first time ever.

McCARTNEY HONORED WITH WALK OF FAME STAR

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce honored music legend Paul McCartney with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Thursday (9 FEB. 2012.)

McCartney's star is positioned aside his fellow Beatles; Ringo Starr, George Harrison and John Lennon, in front of the historic Capitol Records building located at 1750 N. Vine St.

"Way back in history, in Liverpool, when we were kids and we were listening to Buddy Holly and all the rock-and-roll greats, I would have never thought that the day would come that I'd be getting the star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame," McCartney said. "That was, like, an impossible thing to happen.

But here we are today, and it's happening. Well, I couldn't have done it without, certainly, three boys. So, I want to thanks to those guys: John, George and Ringo. (Crowd member: "Where's Ringo?") Ringo's a little bit under the weather today, so he couldn't come. So, we send our love."

The recording academy will honor McCartney tomorrow night (Friday, 10 February) as "Person of the Year."

SWANS AND PUFFA JACKETS AT STELLA MCCARTNEY

Swans and puffa jackets dominated the catwalk at Stella McCartney's ready-to-wear Autumn-Winter 2016 fashion show Monday (7 MARCH 2016) at the Opera Garnier in Paris.

The designer presented an effortlessly feminine collection, this time with a touch of humor and a tomboy feel.

"I think our entire house is about celebrating women, you know? So it's really about taking the pieces that we've been doing and giving women in their wardrobe for many years and bringing them all into one show in a bigger and better way," McCartney shared after the show.

Urban puffa jackets were a key element of the collection. They appeared in different lengths - some cropped or cinched at the waist, most of them oversized. They also came in different colors: easy-to-wear black, but also in radiant hues, including apricot, peacock and denim blue.

The first look, a copper velvet puffa vest and an ankle-length plisse skirt in ginger with foil bronze panels, immediately set the mood.

"We had sort of the mixture of like a puffa jacket and then a foil-pleated skirt with tulle coming out from underneath. It was this idea of just taking extraordinary elements and putting them all together in a kind of really real way, you know?" said McCartney.

A swan print motif dominated the collection, with wide-leg trousers, long sleeve shirts with ruffle accents, and a long, floor-sweeping dress all featuring the print.

"I think swans are so elegant. They're so beautiful," shared McCartney. "I always think they're pretty British, even though they're probably not. But, you know, we have them in the parks in London and I just think they're very elegant creatures. And kind of aggressive too, so that's good, you know? I like the contrast."

Shoes had a sporty feel, even mules and pumps, which came in velvet, denim and nappa finishes, while jewelry came in the form of single long pendant earrings and necklaces with crescent and cylindrical shapes.

British singer and songwriter Sir Paul McCartney was very impressed by his daughter's work.

"It's always exciting to come to Stella's show because she's my little baby," smiled the former Beatle. "But I think it's always surprising to see how professional and what a great designer she is, and this collection I think was very special. It's a little younger, and witty, very unusual. I think the girls all look beautiful and so yeah, I love it. I think she was fabulous."

British actress Kristin Scott Thomas, Swedish actress Noomi Rapace and British Formula One racing champion Lewis Hamilton were among the celebrities sitting front row at the show.
