Knights work if you can get it

The Herald - - OPINION -

HELP the aged. Like Sir Paul Mccart­ney. The poor soul, who is worth a lit­tle less than £400 mil­lion thanks to his song­writ­ing tal­ents, has been forced to take on ex­tra work.

This week, Macca per­formed at a pri­vate party for US busi­ness ty­coon Robert Craft, owner of the New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots Amer­i­can foot­ball team.

It’s not known what the former Bea­tle was paid for his ser­vices in singing the likes of Let It Be to just 300 fans, but the busi­ness stan­dard for pri­vate gigs per­formed by leg­ends is £1m.

But per­haps he didn’t do it for the money. Per­haps he sim­ply wanted a nice night with friends in an Amer­i­can sta­dium that holds

65,000.

Per­haps he’s sim­ply like Sir Cliff Richard who also turned out this week on stage in Liver­pool. And Sir El­ton John is cur­rently on a world tour.

It seems our great knights just want to spend their nights be­ing loved.
