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.

Paul McCartney is a real class-act. I love the Beatles, and I loved Whitney. Good to see he's showing his respect. Really couldn't ask for a more down-to-earth person than Paul McCartney. I absolutely love him! He's always managed to maintain a high level of class and poise in any situation.

wow    

Paul is a classy and gifted musician. At her prime Whitney was one of the best so Paul would definitely respect her work.
Off topic, it's interesting how all the older musicians who only smoked weed are still going strong and don't need rehab.

How disrespectful, insensitive and WRONG!!! That The Boss and The E Street Band should open the ceremony with not ONE WORD about the death of Clarence Clemons, THE BIG MAN!!!!! No! LL LOSER immediatly started the evening tribute to Whitney Houston. CLARENCE CLEMONS deserved something, shame on you, ll whatever, and shame on the grammys.

Not for nothing,Paul is a class act.
If not for him & the Beatles,EVERYONE ELSE would be nothing.
They were the first.
They were the best.
They were what everyone else was judged by.......

Paul is a nice guy and he did the politically correct thing if you're a left wing Democrat/Liberal/Labour/Social Credit supporter. The more insane among you are angry that he didn't wear a tux or suit. Boy, are you ever demanding!?! She killed herself with booze and overconsumption of dangerous prescription drugs. She wasn't killed by some psychotic murderer. There are plenty of people much more deserving of sympathy than Witless Whitney Houston. Children who develop life-threatening cancers or who are born with congenital heart defects or neuromuscular diseases like MS or MD. They are the people to sympathize with. Whitney was a crack/cocaine hoare (sic) who sealed her own fate. Yes, she had a glorious voice. And she used it to entertain and delight all of us and then she threw it all away by becoming addicted to mind-altering drugs. If you can't see that, you're blind or deluded. Get a life. Rihanna looks like she'll go the same route. She picks boyfriends who beat the crap out of her. Not smart, she is.

Give him a break, he's a very decent guy. I played a half-week with him at Carnegie Hall, and he was so humble and self-effacing among the orchestra musicians.

It's nice of him to pay his respects to Whitney. The Beatles will always be the best rock n' roll band ever. But that song Paul did last night about the Valentine, was just awful. I was really surprised.
