Sir Paul McCartney could soon be Lord Paul McCartney.
Word out of London is that he is being considered for a peerage ahead of his 80th birthday, June 18th, and 25 years after being knighted.
The Sun quotes a source who says, "He has given incredible service to British culture, so it could be a very fitting tribute and mark of all that he has done for his country.
"Paul is already in an extraordinarily exclusive set of people at the very top of the honors system.
"There is now quiet talk among officials about how to mark his 80th with something truly special. The idea of offering him the chance to sit as a cross-bencher in the Lords has been mooted."
Should McCartney receive this honor, he joins a select group of musicians, including Andrew Lloyd Webber and the late Benjamin Britten and the late violin virtuoso Yehudi Menuhin.
In 2018, McCartney's knighthood was upgraded to admit him to the rare Order of the Companions of Honour - of which there are only 61 living members.
