Paul McCartney Is Final Beatles Member to Receive Walk of Fame Star

The 69-year-old star is honored for his success: "I want to say thanks to those guys, John, George and Ringo...I couldn't have done it without them"

Paul McCartney became the final member of the Beatles to receive his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Thursday, just two days after the release of his new collection of standards, Kisses on the Bottom

The iconic singer-songwriter's star -- the 2,460th on the Walk -- is located right where you'd expect, alongside fellow Beatles Ringo Starr and the late George Harrison and John Lennon.

Legendary musician Neil Young was on hand to introduce the happy newlywed, saying the 69-year-old was still "at the top of his game," E! News reports.

"Like Charlie Chaplin was a great actor, that's how I look at Paul, he's at the top," Young said. "And yet even with all of that craft that he has and his ability to put melodies and chords and feelings together, it's the soul that comes out of his music and everything that he does that makes me feel so good and so happy to be here with him and honor him today."

McCartney dedicated his success to the rest of the Fab Four.

"Way back in history, in Liverpool when we were kids and we were listening to Buddy Holly and all the rock 'n' roll greats, I would have never thought that the day would come when I'd be getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame," McCartney said. "That was like an impossible thing to happen. But here we are today, and it's happening. But I couldn't have done it without, certainly, three boys -- so I want to say thanks to those guys, John, George and Ringo...I couldn't have done it without them, so I want to thank those guys and bless them for being in my life."
