Paul McCartney has a secret heart operation

Paul has had an operation.  It all seems a little minor, and Paul and his people are taking a hush-hush approach to the heart stint.  I guess it is one of the dangers of being a Beatle fan.  I mean, these guys, the remaining two Beatles, are not immortal.  Things will and do happen.  People get old, and we must face the inevitable.

The thing that this (minor) news hits home for me is the fact that we must treasure every new album, live appearance.  There may not be that many left.  Who knows what the future may bring.  I hate to be a downer, but it is a fact.  Who know’s we may have another 20 or so years of new material to relish.  For now, I will simply cherish each moment, and treat them as the gifts that they are.  It looks like Paul himself is not holding back these days anyway.  I mean he did party, with Kylie Minogue, like a rock-star on New Year’s Eve.

Kylie Minogue and Sir Paul McCartney

Here’s what we’ve read.

Sir Paul McCartney has had a secret heart operation, it was revealed last night.

The 65-year-old megastar underwent coronary angioplasty – a procedure that opens up arteries and allows a greater flow of blood.

A source said: “Paul had been complaining about not feeling well and saw a Harley Street specialist at The London Clinic.

“Tests were carried out and the decision was taken to operate. Paul had the angioplasty in a private hospital. It was all very routine but any work on your heart is a big deal.”

Ex-Beatle Macca made a good recovery – and looked on fine form as he joined Kylie Minogue to perform his hit Dance Tonight during Jools Holland’s BBC2 New Year special.

A friend of the legend said: “Luckily Paul is in very good shape. He does regular exercise and is fit.

“He eats well and does not carry any excess weight. He has always been in exceptional health, which is remarkable when you think of the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle he once had.”

Surgeons perform coronary angioplasty by passing a fine tube in through the groin and up to the aorta.

A small balloon at the tip of the tube is inflated at the narrowest part of an artery to squash fatty deposits clogging it and allow blood to flow freely again.

A stent – a short wire-mesh tube – is usually left in to prop open that segment of artery.

Sir Paul and bitter wife Heather, 39, have still not reached a financial settlement over the collapse of their four-year marriage.

A five-day High Court hearing next month will try to decide how much she should receive from Macca’s £800million fortune. The couple must also work out details for custody of their four-year-old daughter Beatrice.

Heather was dumped by celebrity lawyers Mishcon de Reya after TV rants about her marriage. She faces a demand for £2million legal fees.

Last night Macca’s spokesman said of the hush-hush angioplasty performed in the autumn: “It was a routine medical operation.”

Sun GP Dr Carol Cooper said: “About 40,000 angioplasty ops are done each year in the UK because it’s a very good way of treating severe angina symptoms and the success rate is at least 90 per cent.”

  1. I dread the day Paul and Ringo leave us.

  2. I selfishly hope Paul empties his vaults of all his unreleased gems from his awesome career before he dies. Maybe if he truly embraces the fact that he’s nearing the end of the end he will do so in order to control his legacy a bit more than if others do it.
