You'd think that people would have had enough of Paul McCartney. Look around and you'll see it isn't so. Not by a long shot. Whatever your opinion of the lightweight Beatle and his musical contributions since the famous breakup 32 years ago, you can't fault Paul's work ethic, particularly for a guy turning 60 in less than two months. Seems obvious that, yes, we will still need him, we will still feed him, four years down the line.

McCartney chose to make Cleveland one of the 20 stops on his seven-week tour of North America, which kicked off April 1. He and his band -- Rusty Anderson (guitar), Brian Ray (bass/guitar), and Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums) -- will finish May with a few dates in Europe, before hitting London to headline a 12,000-guest party celebrating the 50th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II's reign June 3. All this from a man who has already, in the space of a year, recorded a CD of new material, performed at the Super Bowl and the Academy Awards, and organized a star-studded concert in New York City that raised a Madison Square Garden-record $30 million for families of relief workers following the events of September 11. And if that isn't enough, Sir Paul will be getting married sometime this year to ex-model Heather Mills, 26 years his junior. Do you figure he's got the energy for it?
