Sir Paul McCartney finally got his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Weirdly, he was the last of the former Beatles to receive the honor. Even Ringo Starr has a star.
McCartney's star is in front of the Capitol Records building on Vine Street, NBC Los Angeles reported.
"Way back in history, in Liverpool when we were kids and we were listening to Buddy Holly and all the rock 'n' roll greats, I would have never thought that the day would come when I'd be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame," McCartney told a crowd of several hundred. "That was like an impossible thing to happen. But here we are today, and it's happening."
John Lennon and George Harrison both received their stars posthumously. Ringo got his in February 2010. The Beatles as a band got a star in 1998.
"I couldn't have done it without, certainly, three boys -- so I want to say thanks to those guys, John, George and Ringo," McCartney said. "I couldn't have done it without them, so I want to thank those guys and bless them for being in my life."
Paul McCartney, 69, will perform at the Grammy Awards at Staples Center on Feb. 12.
