Boooo! paul-mccartney I can't stand Drake, probably because one of my friends is obsessed with him.

I don't understand why people like him. Most of my friends are into more modern music, and even they can't explain it to me. I'm pretty sure the only person I know who likes Drake only likes him to annoy people.

Beatles records are going to be broken for a number of reasons. If in 50 years time anyone remembers who Drake is never mind know either of these two songs then I might give a smige over this.

Paul has been made a 'companion of honour' in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace today. It has been awarded for his services to music. Nancy was there with him. Congrats Macca paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

The Companion of Honor announcement was last year. https://www.beatlesbible.com/2.....of-honour/

That's why I made my poster for the concert https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....7/#p269854

So the ceremony just took place?

Ron Nasty said https://www.beatlesbible.com/f.....2/#p285488 (and see the post before his)
Disappointed in that, myself. It wouldn't be announced if he hadn't agreed to accept, whether in person or not, and I wouldn't accept any award (not that I'd be offered one) from the Israeli State while they continue to oppress the Palestinian people.

Many people reject the offer of awards from the Israel because of that. There's a good chance Paul will get some criticism for his decision to accept.

(And, just in case anyone thinks I'm being anti-Semitic or anything, I have no problem with people of the Jewish faith, just a problem with the decades of injustice suffered by the Palestinians, and the Israeli State's constant breaking of international law in an attempt to make the two-state solution impossible. You can have a problem with a State without having a problem with its citizens.)  

Paul says his schedule will not allow him to be at the ceremony this year. This articles states "His win will be revoked if he also fails to attend one of the next two award ceremonies in Jerusalem in 2019 or 2020." Paul didn't cite political reasons for not attending, just a scheduling conflict.

Personally, ugh. On the same level as selling pieces of pillows they slept on, only more pathetic since it's 50 years on.

Absolutely. Several times, probably (by which I mean reselling the same brick). A little-known thing about ebay: items of interest can "fail" to be exported or "cleared" for posting through their central warehouse by their internal brokers. Said items resurface under suspicious names (ebay themselves) on ebay for higher prices, it's been going on for years with guitars and other high-value items that are sold internationally or just intrastate. So this fate would be utterly unsurprising to me for a strawberry fields brick. That's not even counting the fakes which will rise up like a forest to confuse buyers.
