By FlickChick on Feb 9, 2014 From A Person in the Dark

Paul McCartney Facts
McCartney was the only barefooted Beatle crossing the street on the sleeve of the "Abbey Road" album (1969), a fact that merited a test segment on the popular "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" (1998) TV series.

One of the guitars he used in his US tour (2005) was the one he used on The Beatles' appearance on "The Ed Sullivan Show" (1948) (aka The Ed Sullian Show) in the early 1960s.

As a VIP guest of President Barack Obama at The White House, McCartney was presented with the Library of Congress "Gershwin Prize for Popular Song" trophy. The former Beatle was the third recipient of the prestigious award after Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder. When McCartney performed a selection of his songs, including "Michelle" especially for the First Lady, he played the very same electric Hofner bass guitar he played when The Beatles made their American TV debut (9 February 1964) on "The Ed Sullivan Show" (1948) (The Ed Sullivan Show) 46 years earlier. Among the various artists commemorating McCartney's spectacular achievement with personal renditions of his songs were: Herbie Hancock and Corinne Bailey Rae ("Blackbird"), Elvis Costello ("Penny Lane"), Emmylou Harris ("For No One"), Faith Hill ("The Long and Winding Road"),
