Sometimes it pays off to create signs and bring them to concerts. When Sir Paul McCartney was performing last week in Rochester, New York, he noticed one of his fans was standing next to her boyfriend, holding a sign that said "He won't marry me until he meets you" and the boyfriend with one that said "I have a ring. And I'm 64". Paul brought them on stage and the man serenaded his new fiancee. (You can watch the video here).

McCartney's NY stint marked the return of a two-month hiatus the former Beatle had to take due to a viral infection which left him briefly hospitalized in Tokyo in May. McCartney's illness forced him to cancel all five of his Asian concerts and to reschedule seven U.S. concerts from June to October, before resuming his 'Out There' tour in Albany. At 72 years old, he's still rockin'.

McCartney has 19 U.S. shows scheduled, including one at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, where the Beatles made their final concert appearance in 1966. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of his first appearance with the Beatles on "The Ed Sullivan Show."

Here's what the rock n' roll legend had to say about fame.
