Can't Buy Me Love: Paul McCartney Tries Again

Updated on May 8, 2011

Paul has been quiet for some time. At 68, he is still the young rocker at heart, even though, his best songs are still from the Beatle era. He is old enough to be called "grandpa", but instead, he is still a Dad ( 3 adult kids, one under 5). At his age, it must feel odd to him when he returns to a divorce and dating scene because of his legacy and iconic status. Every woman knows he has $400,000,000, and for some, the status of dating him is worth overlooking his age and dyed hair. He must feel that his time could be limited. His father died of a heart attack around 65, when the Beatles were THE band. On his recent LP, he recorded a song called, "When I die". Of course, such thinking is silly because one, anyone, can die at any age and many do. But like a car, the more miles you put on the car, the more likely something will fall and cause problems. Ringo is 70, btw.

McCartney is engaged to Nancy Shevell, 51, which means she was born in 1960, when The band was playing in Hamburg, Germany as teenagers. She missed the Beatlemania the world went through and probably knew of them from older siblings or parents. Shevell is McCartney's publicist and they have been dating for four years after the bitter divorce from Heather Mills, which reaped her millions in alimony. She had been married 20 years to an attorney and she was on New York City's Metro Transportation Authority board, as well as VP of New England Motor Freight in NJ, a family business.

I suspect that Paul, despite his iconic status is feeling the pressure of father time. His kids are adults, but one, he helped his son, James, record his record which failed. His daughters are successful and the sting of the recent divorce surely must have made him gun shy to return to finding a mate to finish off his years. It must hard-getting older. Even when you have everything money can buy, have all of the material things, all the fame and know you will never ever be forgotten by the world after you cease to exist, one cannot buy love.

Paul's true love was and probably will always be his Linda. Maybe his refusal to let her go is hisĀ AchillesĀ heel to falling in real love again (Real Love was John's song, released in 1995 by The Beatles after an old 1978 cassette recording was found. It was #1 for a week).

      I agree, anyone who is that rich and famous must always have in the back of their minds whether a person is a true friend or lover or one seeking something else.

      So hard to find the 'right' one, when you already had the right one and they passed away. I don't think he's ever stopped loving his Lady Linda, and, I don't think he can replace her, he can hope to find new love but, once you've been in love with the person you saw as your soul mate, the rest is second best. I hope he's found true love with Nancy Shevell, it must've gutted him when Heather Mills tried to part him from all of his money. She sure knew what she was doing when she married him and, he was vulnerable and looking for comfort!

      I wish he well and for him to be in lots of love. He's a good guy!

      I think Paul is still looking for his Linda and can't find her...maybe this one will be 'the one'. I don't think most men like to be alone, just an observation. I hope he finds what he is looking for.
