“ The 69-year-old McCartney had his (meat-free) plate full for all of 2011. Whether it was releasing re-issues of his two truest solo efforts, ‘McCartney’ and ‘McCartney II,’ collaborating with the New York City Ballet, producing a film marking the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 or embarking on his huge ‘On the Run’ tour, he pretty much did it all. Congratulations, Paul!” (ultimateclassicrock.com)
