Mccartney Snubs Beatles Anniversary

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY will reportedly snub 40th anniversary celebrations for THE BEATLES' album SGT PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND - to promote his new solo album instead. The music legend would rather promote Memory Almost Full than appear on TV and radio to mark the anniversary of the famous album's release on 1 June (07), according to industry insiders. A source tells British newspaper the Daily Express, "While it would have been nice to see Paul and Ringo Starr do something to mark the occasion this time around, Sir Paul is simply going to be too busy promoting his new album to make a big deal out of it. "While he is obviously extremely proud of Sgt Pepper's, it's more rewarding for him to be concentrating on making sure his new album's a commercial success." Meanwhile, contemporary rockers Oasis and The Kaiser Chiefs are to record a new version of the song to mark the anniversary.
