The Beatles front man doesn't fail to remember the importance of his closest relationships, and after the death of his friend and colleague Sir Richard Rodney Bennett on Christmas Eve, McCartney left a post on his website, clearly grief stricken.

The post is largely anecdotal and written from the heart. The time he spent with Richard, he said, "will remain in my memory for a long time" adding, "our time together [was] so special."

Continuing, he said: "I will miss his gentle but brutally incisive comments on music and life in general. I will miss his intelligence, quick wit and mischievous good humour. I will miss him."
