Mccartney Arranges His Funeral
Music legend Sir Paul McCartney has already planned his own funeral - he wants to be laid to rest in Ireland.
The former Beatle, who celebrates his 65th birthday today (18Jun07), confesses he was consumed with thoughts about his own death while writing new album Memory Almost Full.
He says, "I fancied looking at death as a subject for myself. And then I thought, I like the kind of Irish approach where you have a wake and it's kind of celebratory.
"I remember an Irish woman wishing me well once and she said, 'I wish you a good death.' When I thought about that, that's actually a great thing to wish someone."
