PAUL McCARTNEY

Pays His Respects to Whitney

2/13/2012 4:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy Shevell lay flowers at a makeshift memorial for Whitney HoustonPaul McCartney and his wife Nancy Shevell just swung by the Beverly Hilton hotel to lay flowers at a makeshift memorial for Whitney Houston ... and TMZ has the pics.

Paul and Nancy dropped a bouquet of yellow roses at the scene, shook hands with some of Whitney's fans at the memorial and talked about how much they loved the late singer.

We're told the fans tried to compliment Paul on his performance at the Grammy Awards last night ... but Paul brushed off the praise ... insisting, "This is about Whitney, not me."

We can't find any evidence that Paul and Whitney ever sang together ... but clearly, the Beatles legend had a respect for her work.

He, as a LEGENDARY singer/musician himself, knows one legendary talent when he sees one! I am SO BLESSED to be in a place in life where I know most Beatles songs and most Whitney Houston songs too. I am SAD for those that were all asking on Twitter last night who Paul McCartney was.

Good for Sir Paul. Glad to hear someone focusing on what's important here, her memory and her vocal instrument that has contributed to the music library of our lifetime. Whitney was not a big favorite of mine, but there was no doubt about her voice being one of the most incredible in history. RIP Whitney.

Why is his wife smiling? Does she think this is an appearance? Much admiration to Paul. Quality man.

Would have been more respectful if he wasn't wearing his jogging clothes.

Oh, that was very well done of Paul McCartney and his wife. For some reason that makes me feel really good, that all kinds of people are coming out and expressing their condolences for Whitney Houston.

Dang, he looks old. Wish he would stop dyeing his hair.

Ringo doesn't dye his hair, and he has aged so much better than Paul.
