Hundreds of fans screamed and celebrated as former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney was finally honoured with a star in the historic Walk of Fame.

The 69-year-old singer/ musician/songwriter is the last Beatle to be honoured with this prestigious title. John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr received the honour in 1980, 2001 and 2010 respectively.

"In Liverpool, when we were kids and listening to Buddy Holly and all the other rock and roll greats, I would have never thought the day would come when I'd be getting a star on the Walk of Fame," Reuters quoted the former Beatles bass man as saying.

"I thought it was an impossible thing to happen. But here we are today," he added.

The left-handed guitar and bass player went on to thank his three former band mates saying that he would have never been famous without them.

McCartney's star has been put just alongside his former Beatles band mates' stars outside the Capitol Records building.

McCartney, who has just released his new solo album entitled "Kisses at the Bottom," will be performing this Sunday at the 54th Grammy Awards.
