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."

Why would anyone have a hard time believing that Its not true. It could be. Think of all the past news know one doesnt believe those either.We just have to understand death comes to all.When we die money or fame doesnt matter. I think its wonderfull that Paul is okay with It.If everyting is all in place for the ones you leave behind.I part scottish Irish my grandpa on my Moms side.I know It would be hard for others I would leave behind .But I dont wont no crying & lame music at my funeral .And I would want an open casket. I want people to remember me as I was. So for me I think Its wonderfull that he is okay with it and would be ready to move on when the time comes.Paul I hope you live to be 110 yrs old but only if your in good health.Love paul Jackie Wilm.NC.

This is a stupid, pointless article. Just because Paul had mentioned in an interview that he likes the way the Irish commemorate deaths that translates to "he wants to be buried in Ireland" and "he has planned his own funeral". Give me a break. You really stretch the truth to get your "news".
