Paul is named the first-ever Ultimate Classic Rock Awards Artist of the Year!

4 January 2012

Some of the biggest names in classic rock were up for awards across 10 categories. Nearly a quarter of a million fans voted for their favorite artist or band. Paul took 34% of the vote in the Artist of the Year category, followed by Nikki Sixx, Sammy Hagar and Alice Cooper.

€œThe 69-year-old McCartney had his (meat-free) plate full for all of 2011. Whether it was releasing re-issues of his two truest solo efforts, €˜McCartney€™ and €˜McCartney II,€™ collaborating with the New York City Ballet, producing a film marking the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 or embarking on  his huge €˜On the Run’ tour, he pretty much did it all. Congratulations, Paul!€ (
