Rock legend Sir Paul McCartney may be one of the most famous men in the world, but he was painfully starstruck when he met childhood musical idol PHIL EVERLY.

Both McCartney and late Beatles bandmate John Lennon grew up listening to the EVERLY BROTHERS and together impersonated brothers Phil and Don.

McCartney says, "He was such a figure from my youth that I went all daft and said, 'Er, I used to be you... John was Don'... and all the most stupid things. He got very embarrassed."
