Back when Paul McCarthey was a young lad, he asked the world if we would still love him at 64. Well now the Beatle is 69 years and wearing only swimming trunks while on vacation in St Barths; and I have to say the answer is yes. I can’t believe what a good body he has months before he enters his seventh decade.
I don't know I find it kind of strange that it took Paul McCartney so long to deny that he didn't have an angioplasty, don't you think. I am glad he is doing well and passed his medical tests with flying colors!
Israel is apologizing to the surviving Beatles for banning them 43 years ago and will invite them to play Israel's 60th anniversary in May according to EarthTimes.
Here is what the Israeli UK Ambassador said is in the letter while he was in Liverpool this weekend.
"we would like to take this opportunity to rectify an historic missed opportunity which unfortunately took place in 1965 when you were invited to Israel.
"Unfortunately, the State of Israel cancelled your performance in the country due to lack of budget and because several politicians in the Knesset had believed at the time that your performance might corrupt the minds of the Israeli youth.
"There is no doubt that it was a great missed opportunity to prevent people like you, who shaped the minds of a generation, to come to Israel and perform before the young generation in Israel who admired you and continues to admire you."
The Ambassador will give the letter to John Lennon's sister today at the Beatles' museum and will send the letter to George Harrison's relatives and to Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
Hopefully Paul and Ringo will follow John Lennon's words and Give Peace a Chance and do Israel's 60th Anniversary celebrations!

According to NME, Kurt Cobain fell off the charts after being number #1 last year when Courtney Love started selling him off.
The name on that list that shocks me most is Albert Einstein, I guess brains count for something too.
NME is reporting that Julian Lennon has sold off his stake of his father’s compositions from the Beatles to Primary Wave Music Publishing. Primary Wave Music Publishing reportedly bought the Nirvana rights last year from Courtney Love for $50 million, so it will be interesting to see how much Julian Lennon got. The announcement of Julian Lennon’s sale is expected later today.
In other Beatles news, EMI and the surviving Beatles and family have settled their argument and their music could be available for download soon!
Back to Julian Lennon, I met him once in Miami at some and all I can say is he a great hugger!
