McCartney demands to top Live 8 bill

Sir Paul McCartney will open and close Saturday's event after threatening not to appear at all.

After soldiering on through a performance of Let It Be at 1985's Live Aid and then being told he was too old to sing by producers of last year's Band Aid single Do They Know It's Christmas?, the former Beatle is determined that he is going to be in the limelight at the Hyde Park Live 8 event this weekend.

Sir Paul will now open the event with an altered rendition of Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and close it eight hours later with The Long And Winding Road, after he told organisers that he would 'think seriously' about not supporting the event at all if he did not get his way, reports the Daily Mail.

A source told the newspaper that the decision was met with hard feelings by certain other egos involved: "Some of the more fragile egos are upset. Bono, in particular, was quick to demand a share of the opening number and sees what he has done politically over the years as a bit more relevant to Live 8 than what Paul has to offer. Remember, these are the biggest rock stars around. Whatever order they sing in there is going to be friction."

As a compromise, Bono and U2 will join McCartney for the opener, sporting colourful miliatary garb as seen on The Beatles' Sergeant Pepper album cover.
