Sir James Paul McCartney is an English singer, songwriter, and musician who was born on June 18, 1942. He first rose to prominence as the co-lead vocalist, co-composer, and bassist with the Beatles. One of the greatest writers and performers of all time, he is renowned for his melodic bass playing, wide vocal range in the tenor range, and musical eclecticism, which includes influences like classical music and electronica as well pre-rock ‘n’ roll pop.
At the Glastonbury Festival, Paul Mc Cartney Honours Johnny Depp:
Paul McCartney honoured his pal Johnny Depp during his headlining performance at the venerable Glastonbury festival. A black-and-white film of Depp in the song’s original video clip was shown onto the screen as the former Beatle sang “My Valentine.”
The decision seems to be an expression of unity and support for Depp, who recently took part in a highly publicised, six-week defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The audience applauded as Depp’s picture flashed on-screen even though he didn’t mention the trial specifically.
Actually, this isn’t the singer’s first mention of Depp onstage this year; in May, he played the same video at a performance on his Get Back Tour before the case’s judgement was announced.

Social media users have criticised McCartney for endorsing Depp. One commenter said, “Justine Depp definitely isn’t the icon he’s presented as. Imagine how hard it is to explain that to a 14-year-old lad, who views much of life through TikTok.”
“I already have. Then, at Glastonbury, one of his heroes, Paul McCartney, broadcasts his image.” Paul McCartney and Johnny Depp have been close friends for many years, and the actor has appeared in a number of McCartney’s music videos.
Others have noted that female performers at the festival have brought up the recent Supreme Court decision that bans legal abortions throughout their performances.
Someone posted on Twitter, “On one stage Megan Thee Stallion is encouraging the crowd to yell, “My body, my mother f—-ing choice.” Paul McCartney is displaying a video of Johnny Depp on the other stage.

Phoebe Bridgers led her audience in chanting “f—- the Supreme Court,” Olivia Rodrigo dedicated her song “F—- You” to the court, and Billie Eilish remarked that “this is a really, really bad day for women in the US.”
Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl were among the special guests who McCartney invited to play with him. Along with performing on George Harrison’s ukulele, he paid tribute to his late bandmate John Lennon.
