    Say it ain't so: Mop top Paul McCartney turns 70
    GREGORY KATZ | June 18, 2012 12:12 PM EST | AP

    LONDON — Paul McCartney can still rock at 70 – what more could a former Beatle want?

    He celebrated his birthday in private Monday, perhaps resting up between gigantic gigs this summer, but is showing no sign of slowing down as his music is passed down to generations too young to have seen him in Wings, much less the Beatles.

    Once a pot-smoking counterculture rebel, "Sir Paul" is very much part of the British establishment now, closing Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee concert earlier this month with a mix of favorites that included a raucous "All My Loving," one of the Beatles' first smash hits.

    He's also preparing for a featured role closing the London Olympics opening ceremony on July 27 – just another global audience measuring a billion or more for one of the most popular performers in pop history. … mccartney/

    Oh no!   Tell me I'm not old enough to remember the early days?  Please?  How about if I say I was really a teeny kid?

    He wrote a lot of great songs.

    Are people on here talking about the REAL Paul McCartney, or the exact look-alike who replaced the real one and took over his life when the real one died in his twenties (and then, of course, sent out a hint about it by not wearing shoes on an album cover)?  AND, what did the Queen know, and when did she know it - because I'm not sure the look-alike really should have been at that Jubilee, at least not while wearing shoes or otherwise sending a clear signal about the secret truth.  (..and who is 70 - the real PM, the look-alike, or both?)

      Who cares indeed, Cags!

      Aging rocker, yawn! I always found him and the rest of the Beatles deathly boring. Classical music is much more fun.
