Paul McCartney will marry his fiancée, Nancy Shevell, this weekend at a farmhouse in Sussex, England. "It will be a small, intimate wedding," a source told Us Weekly. "It's going to be very elegant and classic."

In addition to the wedding in England, the couple will also celebrate in New York, where Shevell serves as a member of the board of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority. "They are having a big party in New York to celebrate later on," says the source.

This will be McCartney's third marriage. His first wife, Linda, died of cancer in 1998. His second marriage to Heather Mills ended with an acrimonious and expensive divorce in 2008.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
