There wasn't any mention of it on "Entertainment Tonight", "Access Hollywood", or on the news when I watched last night. Maybe they will mention it today, but, why a day later? Why not report it on the day it happens? Paul recieving his star is huge news in the entertainment world for someone of his prominence. Did anyone see any mention of it your news?

Yep, it was on the news in Australia.

I'll be in Hollywood in April so I'm definitely going to go get a pic of his star - along with John, Georgie, Ringo's and The Beatles' star of course. Never made it up to Vine Street/Capitol Records Building last time I was there.

I have to say, Pauly doesn't look as happy as I thought he would be in these pics. And it looks really odd with that gap in his name - "MC CARTNEY". Only thing I can think of is because they only use capital letters, so they can't write "McCARTNEY". Either way, very happy for him :)

that hollywood walk is a joke to me...look at what it takes to get it...you are chosen and then you or your record company or whatever has to pay 15 grand...no money no star..

here's a story from a few years back ... about the process.

Although it does not matter, how many feel it's odd Paul was the last one to get a star? Nice speech he made. Too bad Ringo was sick, a speedy recovery to him.

Right, I agree. The whole thing is a little lame. I'm wondering if Paul could have had one years before, but just didn't want to pony up the dough? It would still be kinda cool to see though. And yeah, it was a nice speech and I hope Ringo feels better soon.

ABC news, Diane Sawyer did a piece on McCartney's star!

He was supposed to get it several times over the years, but had scheduled other things and could never make it - one of the rules is you only receive your star when you can attend the ceremony in person.

Default Why Sir Paul McCartney didn't have a Walk of Fame star sooner

Why Sir Paul McCartney didn't have a Walk of Fame star sooner

LOS ANGELES - Sir Paul McCartney received a star on Hollywood's renouned Walk of Fame recently. It's not a surprise that the star was awarded in conjunction with Sir Paul performing at the 54th Annual Grammy Awards 2-12-12, Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy party 2-11-12, and his being celebrated as the MusiCares Person of the Year on 2-10-12. It's been an exciting trip for the former Beatle.Many reacted to Sir Paul not having had a star sooner as something of a personal insult or a lack of recognition. The Beatles have a star. All of the other former Beatles have stars - Ringo Starr, George Harrison, and John Lennon. Why not Paul McCartney - he's even been knighted by Her Majesty, the Queen of England

Well damn, it's long past time the man got his star!

I'm glad Ringo got his "Starr" as well!
