Sir Paul keeps an award he earned for outstanding record sales in 1979 in special protective storage not because of its value, but because of its composition:
"I've still go the disc somewhere but it kills you if you handle it, or even look at it. Maybe Superman can touch it but someone told me that rhodium is poisonous and that's why I don't go near it."
Rhodium is a costly metal, 10 times more precious then platinum. Experts claim it is perfectly safe and used in the creation of some of the world's most expensive watches and jewelry.
