Washington: Sir Paul Mccartney has unveiled a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, almost 20 years after he was first nominated for in the honour.

He is the last solo Beatle to receive the honour, Contactmusic reported.

Mccartney was first selected for the honour in 1993 but never found the time to set a date for the unveiling, until now.

On Thursday, the singer unveiled the 2,460th star outside the Capitol Records building on Vine Street, where he was rehearsing for a free live iTunes streaming performance of his new album ‘Kisses on the Bottom’.

Elvis Costello and MCCartney’s wife Nancy Shevell joined hundreds of fans for the brief ceremony, but former Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr couldn’t be seen.

And MCCartney explained that Starr was “under the weather” and too ill to attend, but he insisted the drummer remains a “really good friend”.
