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 McCarthy has always been my favorite of the Beatles he is still excellent performer but, more than that he is a great human being with so much heart!!!! He doesn't put himself above people he is so geniune genius. A really good man and, the one he's with now seems to be geniune too I'm happy for him. It's so hard seeing things happen to people that you so admire. I bet he listen to her music alot. And I'm sure she listened and, admired him.

Sir Paul never ceases to amaze me, Where are the other artists? It's so plastic out in HW when your alive evryone hangs with you, loves you etc..but the minute your gone, then plastic people don't even bother to show respect. Paul will always be a class act I'm so proud to have been part of that 60's generation to see and watch the
Beatles grow and move on. Keep on Rockin Sir Paul, and take good care of Lady Nancy. Whitney, Your talent was superior, far beyond what words can describe. You will be missed so much by family, friends, fans...God Bless you and grant you love and peace.

Have you not noticed that macca only mentions or is seen with FAMOUS musicians. He will jump on any bandwagon to be seen in the papers, if it be Whitney , gaga, mnmt, kaisers, ect . Hes turned into a celeb like elton and rod. Paul weller encourages up and coming musicians.......weller is a music lover, macca a tabloid celeb these days.
