Paul McCartney Goes Back To Beatlesque Roots

Paul McCartney made a rare record signing appearance in London Thursday, drawing more than 2,000 exuberant fans to the Oxford Street HMV record store.

McCartney fans young and old, some from as far away as Poland, crowded the streets in an excited scene reminiscent of 1960s Beatlemania, eager to catch a glimpse of the Liverpool-born rocker. Approximately 250 people had copies of Flaming Pie, McCartney's latest solo effort, or Standing Stone, his new symphonic composition, signed by the recently knighted former Beatle.
