Stewart Sticks Up For Mccartney At Gq Awards
SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY was awarded the Man Of The Year gong at the GQ Awards in London last night (05SEP06), while rocker ROD STEWART picked up the Outstanding Achievement trophy. The British men's magazine honoured the veteran hitmakers, alongside DOCTOR WHO star BILLIE PIPER, who bagged the Woman Of The Year award. But rock star Stewart still found time in all of the excitement to speak out in sympathy for the former BEATLE in the light of his current divorce battle with HEATHER MILLS. Stewart says, "My lowest point was when RACHEL (HUNTER) left. That was a bolt of lightning. "F**k me, it was terrible. Loot at Paul now, I feel so sorry for him. "I wasn't prepared for it at all. I grew up a lot after that."
