Paul McCartney has been given a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, making him the last member of the Beatles to get one.
At the unveiling, he made sure to remember his bandmates in the iconic group.
“I couldn’t have done it without a certain three boys. So I want to say thanks to those guys, John, George and Ringo,” McCartney said.
A host of fans turned out to see him on the Walk as his star made the total number 2,460.
The Beatles were given a star as a group in 1998, more than 25 years after they split up. Lennon and Harrison were given their individual stars several years after their deaths in 1980 and 2001 respectively, while Starr got his in 2010.
Ringo Starr was prevented from attending the ceremony because of illness, but rocker Neil Young was on hand to pay tribute to McCartney as a singer and songwriter “at the top of his game”.
His latest album, released this week, is called ‘Kisses from the Bottom’. It is a compilation of tributes to McCartney’s favourite performers.
