I was in college when I first heard the Beatles sing “When I’m Sixty-four.” The idea of getting older, losing my hair or wondering whether my partner would still need me was not my concern. But now, with Paul McCartney over 70, and me just one year away from 64, it’s a different story.
Ex-Beatle Paul McCartney reportedly spent the night before his wedding at Yom Kippur services.
Israel is trying to atone for a decision to bar a tour by the Beatles 43 years ago. Israel's ambassador to London, Ron Prosor, has written a letter to relatives of the late Beatles singer John Lennon and guitarist George Harrison apologizing for a 1965 government ban on the British pop group and inviting its surviving members -- Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr -- to play in the Jewish state.
"We should like to take this opportunity to correct the historic error which to our great regret occurred in 1965, when you were invited to Israel," Yediot Achronot quoted the letter as saying. "We should like to see you sing in Israel."
