Receiving awards must never get old. And Paul certainly has his share of them. While, we did not get to see him at the Grammy Awards like his buddy Ringo, he did make a grand, brief, speech and headlining performance at this year’s Brit Awards. Paul was the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award this year, and it was presented to him from longtime Beatle admirer none other than Ozzy Osbourne.
Paul rocked the house with one new track and some old standards, which he dedicated to Linda and John. It looks like the boys are sharp still onstage. And their performance was the show-stealing finale. Let’s hope we see a tour and some new tunes in the recent future now that the divorce proceedings are nearing an end.

Macca shows divorce battle with Heather Mills is not getting to him
Sir Paul McCartney received a 5-minute standing ovation at the Brit Awards last night.
Macca was at the Earl’s Court bash to pick up his Outstanding Contribution To Music gong.
Despite his stressful time battling Heather Mills in court last week, he closed the show with a storming set – including Live And Let Die, Hey Jude and Get Back.
The extravagant performance brought the house down as he made use of fireworks and pyrotechnics.
Paul, 65, paid tribute to his late first wife Linda and ex-Beatle bandmate John Lennon with his song list.
‘Live And Let Die is the song that reminds me of Linda,’ he told fans. ‘Hey Jude reminds me of John.’
And fashion designer daughter Stella, 36, couldn’t be prouder.
‘My dad rocks!’ she tells the Daily Mirror. ‘That was a great tribute to Mum. He’s not sad, I mean look at him go!’
Heather was not at the glittering music bash.
