McCartney to unveil Walk of Fame star

SIR Paul McCartney is to unveil his star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

The music legend is the last of The Beatles to receive his own star on the famous pavement, which will be unveiled next Thursday (09.02.12).

Paul's star will be located next to those of bandmates John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison on Vine Street, in front of the iconic Capitol Records Building in Los Angeles, which was the US home of The Beatles during their career.

Capitol is also where Paul recorded his latest album, 'Kisses on the Bottom'.

Speaking of his time at the studio, he recently said: "We were in Capitol studios, the iconic studio where Nat King Cole, Sinatra, Dean Martin, all these guys recorded and it felt a little bit intimidating because I had no idea what the record would sound like, we chose the songs, and then started working it out, and we did it very organically."

While Paul was initially awarded his star more than 10 years ago, a presentation ceremony could not be scheduled until now. As is traditional with the unveiling of stars on the Walk of Fame, guest speakers are expected to pay tribute to the 'Jey Jude' singer as he unveils the tribute.

The next day (10.02.11), he will be honoured again as the MusiCares Person of the Year, with a gala night which will include a dinner, silent auction and a star-studded concert.

Performers will include Tony Bennett, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, Norah Jones, Alicia Keys, Katy Perry and Paul will himself make an appearance on stage at the end of the evening.

John and George were awarded their stars on the Walk of Fame posthumously in 1988 and 2009 respectively, while Ringo received his in 2010.

The Beatles as a group were awarded a star in 1998.
