- In a major blow to the organizers of the prestigious annual Kennedy Center Honors, McCartney has pulled out of December's event so that he can attend his niece's wedding – he will instead receive his honor at next year's black-tie ceremony. (August 2002)
- McCartney is set to earn £70million by Christmas after announcing his second American tour of the year. He will play at least 23 dates on his Back In The US shows this autumn.
- Macca has already made £40million from his Driving USA tour in the early 2002. It's not as if Macca needs the money — he has a personal wealth of £713million.
- He was among six artists named on Tuesday, July 30th, as winners of the 25th annual Kennedy Center Honors award in recognition of their contributions to the nation's cultural life.
- Kennedy Center Chairman James Johnson called McCartney one of the most prolific and influential songwriters of our era
- He did the theme tune in THE ZOO GANG (1975)
- He reportedly named the song Eleanor Rigby after the actress Eleanor Bron (HELP! (1965)).
- The romantic theme song heard under the credits, Did We Meet Somewhere Before? is sung by 'McCartney, Paul' and Wings. McCartney wrote it as the theme to Heaven Can Wait (1978), but 'Beatty, Warren' decided not to use it. Allan Arkush, the Ramones' manager, then swung a deal whereby he was able to use the song for only $500 provided McCartney did not receive screen credit (ROCK 'N' ROLL HIGH SCHOOL (1979)).
- Two Paul McCartney instrumentals are used in JERRY MAGUIRE, Momma Miss America (during the airport montage) and Singalong Junk (during Jerry and Dorothy's first kissing scene on the porch), both from the 1970 album McCartney. Crowe received McCartney's permission without ever having met him, instead sending a tape of the film to the latter's office. The two would actually meet for the first time five years later in L.A., and the result of that meeting was McCartney composing the title song to Crowe's movie VANILLA SKY, which earned an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song.
- Financially helps down and out pop singers that he reads about in need.
- Was nominated Best Music, Song in 1974 for LIVE AND LET DIE. (shared with Linda McCartney).
- He is 5'4
- John Lennon was so impressed when he first met Paul because he could play 20 flight rock, and couldn't read a lick of music, and so was invited to join John's band who soon became the Beatles.
- New wife of ex-Beatle Sir Paul McCartney, Heather Mills, said someone urinated on her head during a period of homelessness while she was living rough on the streets of London.
"Somebody said to me, 'But the Beatles were anti-materialistic.' That's a huge myth. John and I literally used to sit down and say, 'Now, let's write a swimming pool.'"
- Paul McCartney (Pointing out that anything Beatle-related would be an instant hit)
He won Grammy for Best Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or Television Special in 1971 for LET IT BE
