9/11 Tribute: Paul McCartney Plays Let It Be Honoring First Responders

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.InspirationPaul McCartneySad SadPerezTV

Your Reaction?

11 years passed … but never forgotten.

In October of 2001 Sir Paul McCartney organized a benefit honoring the lives lost during the horrific events that occurred in NYC on 9/11/2001.

After a slew of other famous and inspirational acts, Sir Paul closed out his Concert for New York City with Beatles classic Let It Be, giving a musical nod to all the surviving responders — firemen, policemen — who made some civil sense out of the immediate chaos that followed the Twin Tower attacks (above)

Thanks to these men and women, and their brothers and sisters who gave their lives attempting to rescue citizens in danger, the people of NYC were allowed to grieve their losses in a safe, organized atmosphere.

To all the lives lost during the events of that day, and to all those who continue to experience senseless violence on a mass scale due to reasons such as politics, greed, religion etc., we honor you, and may your stories serve as inspiration for peaceful coexistence.

Paul McCartney paid one pound for olympic ceremony performance

Sir Paul McCartney is an international music icon. He's one of the founding members of The Beatles and has gone on to be declared the "most successful composer and recording artist of all time" by Guinness World Records.

That being said, we can't imagine how much it costs to book him for a gig, which is exactly why our minds were blown when we found out what McCartney was paid to perform at the London Olympics Opening Ceremony.

According to sources, the singer was paid ONE million dollars pound!

What!? That's it???

Believe it or not, ALL of

Bruce Springsteen And Paul McCartney Perform Together At London's Hard Rock Calling…And Get Cut Off!

Your Reaction?

It doesn't matter if this was a once in lifetime occasion!

In London, a curfew MEANS a curfew!

And unfortunately for Bruce Springsteen, who was joined on stage by none other than Sir Paul McCartney during his headlining performance at London's Hard Rock Calling in Hyde Park last night, he learned that the hard way!

The duo, who are living legends in their own rights respectively, managed to ROCK OUT two INCREDIBLE renditiions of I Saw Her Standing There and Twist and Shout together before concert organizers pulled the plug…which meant they weren't even allowed to thank the crowd!

LAME!

Ch-ch-ch-check it all go down (above)!

Although the Boss nor the former Beatle have spoken out about it all, the E Street Band's Steven Van Zandt took to Twitter afterwards to blow off some steam

Sir Paul McCartney Shuts The Night DOWN In Honor Of Her Majesty!

Your Reaction?

AAaaaaannnnnd we are jubilantly SPENT!

Monday evening shimmered in the haze of dynamic, majestic melodies as some of Britain's most iconic talent took to the fountain-turned-stage just outside Buckingham Palace's gates, to honor Queen Elizabeth II in her 60th year on England's throne.

And who better than Sir Paul McCartney, Beatle extraordinaire, to close out the unparalleled musical celebration!

Paul set alight his finale performance by leading the patriotic crowd on a Magical Mystery Tour, and then preceded to evoke MAJOR nostalgia with All My Loving, Let It Be and Live and Let Die.

To end the night's emotional festivities, Sir Paul brought all the Diamond Jubilee concert performers back on stage for an uplifting rendition of Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.

Be moved by pure musical joy (above)!

Tears. Sparkling diamond tears.

All hail the most HONORABLE Knight of the Realm, Sir Paul McCartney!

Did you know that Paul saved DJ Mark Ronson from drowning in the Long Island Sound when Mark was just a little lad?

Well neither did Mark!

He had heard tales from his mother that eluded to a saviour-beatle, but assumed it was one of his mom’s “crazy stories”…

Until he recently recorded a song with the famed ex-Beatle!

Mark recently revealed:
