Mccartney 'Not Retiring'

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has slammed reports his next tour in 2010 will be his last.
The Beatles legend was reportedly in negotiations to set up a series of concerts across the globe to mark his retirement from the road.
He was scheduling stops at China's famous Tiananmen Square and Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin, Germany - the famous crossing point of the Berlin Wall when the country was divided during the Cold War - on the route next year (10), according to the tabloid rumours.
But MCCartney has hit back at the claims, insisting he plans to play live for as long as he can.
He says, "All I can say is that I'm not retiring. It's like 'Paul is dead'. 'No, I'm not,' is all I could say. I did talk about retirement in one sentence in one story and only to say 'No way, Jose.' But someone must have only read part of that one sentence.
"As long as people want to come and hear me, I’ll probably be doing this. It's just so easy to start rumours."

People love gossip of any kind, unfortunately and love to pick on stars, the great AND the not so great. LEAVE PAUL ALONE. May he go on forever. God bless you Paul!

Didn't believe the rumor that Paul was retiring. He enjoys performing and will keep going as long as he is able. Bless him for all the people he has made happy with his concerts and also for all the charity work, and helping the world's animals.
