That's Dr. Beatle to You

5/26/2008 3:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paul McCartney got an honorary Doctorate of Music from Yale University this afternoon, pissing off Heather Mills who is now missing out on that "doctor" money.


Yale has produced some of the great music legends, like Elvis, Sinatra, Prince, the other three Beatles, and Smokey Robinson. Actually, none of them went there, but Ezra Sims (composer, microtonal music) is an alum. Exactly.

Sad how someone like this gets a diploma with no University work whatsoever, while others work for years to get a degree. Yeah, I know he earned this through his musical success, but it still isnt really right.

remember when tommy Lee of Motley Crue went to college on that silly realty show a couple years or so ago? He said he was lost in the college musical prgram becaseu he didnt really know how to read music. I know many famous musical artists cant reead music, but giving someone a degree like this is , I agree, not really fair, paul does seem like a friendly guy, at least, he appears to be waving to fans in th video. Give him credit for that.

A lot of people dropped out of school/society and didn't think you needed to be able to read music because of the Beatles.

I was there to see Paul receive his degree! After three long years I got my Masters from Yale today, so shout out to myself and Paul McCartney, members of the Class of 2008. I felt bad for Paul because the President's introductory speech about him was nothing but Beatles jokes. The poor man have heard every Beatles joke under the sun countless times.
