Paul McCartney Says Vegas Is Where Musicians Go to Die

It would probably be easier to name the musicians who HAVEN'T done Las Vegas residencies than the ones who have. But one person you'll NEVER see setting up shop there is PAUL MCCARTNEY.

In an interview with the British edition of "GQ" he says, quote, "That's something I've been trying to avoid my whole life. Definitely nothing attracts me about the idea. Vegas is where you go to die, isn't it? It's the elephant's graveyard."

Paul also talks about the BEATLES' split, and how he had to SUE the band to save them from manager Allen Klein, who he thought was trying to take over. Quote, "If I hadn't done that, it would have all belonged to Allan Klein."
