Mccartney Has Heart Operation
BEATLES legend SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY is recovering after undergoing a secret heart operation. The 65-year-old underwent a coronary angioplasty - a procedure to open up arteries, allowing a greater flow of blood to and from the heart - late last year (07). But the star has made a good recovery - he appeared onstage with singer Kylie Minogue for a televised concert on New Year's Eve (31Dec07). A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "Paul had been complaining about not feeling well and saw a Harley Street specialist at The London Clinic. "Tests were carried out and the decision was taken to operate. Paul had the angioplasty in a private hospital. It was all very routine but any work on your heart is a big deal." A spokesman for MCCartney confirmed the surgery adding, "It was a routine medical operation."
