Thanks to the huge success of the Beatles "1" compilation album and his inheritance from Linda's estate, the British press reports that Sir Paul is about to become the world's first pop star billionnaire! He is already pop's first dollar billionaire but is expected to become a sterling billionaire next year.
Also a court correspondant from Buckingham Palace reported this week that in celebration of the golden anniversary of her reign, Queen Elizabeth is considering opening the grounds of several royal residences between May and August, 2002 to host free pop concerts reflecting the popular music of her 50-year reign. The featured artists at the top of her list: the three surviving Beatles. Will we see a royal command performance? We shall see.
