Paul McCartney married for the third time on Sunday, exchanging vows with businesswoman and heiress Nancy Shevell in a small civil ceremony at the Marylebone Town Hall in London.  The ceremony was followed by a reception at McCartney's home, with guests including his fellow Beatle Ringo Starr, George Harrison's widow Olivia and television journalist Barbara Walters, who is Shevell's cousin. The couple have plans to throw another wedding party in New York sometime in the near future.

McCartney, 69, was previously married to Linda Eastman from 1969 until her death from breast cancer in 1998, and to Heather Mills from 2002 until their bitter divorce in 2008. Shevell, 51, has been married once before, to lawyer and former New York State Republican senatorial candidate Bruce Blakeman.

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
