Paul McCartney to receive French honour

2012-09-05 11:19
 
Paris - France's Elysee Palace has said former Beatle Paul McCartney has been nominated for the legion of honour for services to music.

On Tuesday, a presidential spokesperson said that seventy-year-old McCartney — who sung and co-wrote hits like Hey Jude and Yesterday — will be decorated at the rank of officer by French President Francois Hollande in a ceremony on Saturday in Paris.

McCartney will join the ranks other singers to have received the honour. Barbra Streisand and Liza Minnelli were similarly honoured by former President Nicolas Sarkozy.

McCartney — often referred to as "Sir Paul" or "Macca" in his native Britain — has already received a knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II, who watched him perform at the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
