No glum funeral for MaccaMay 21st, 2008 - 6:03 pm ICT by admin
Washington, May 21 (ANI): Sir Paul McCartney has revealed that he wants people to celebrate his death a light-hearted funeral.
The 65-year-old former Beatle insists on having a light-hearted funeral after he witnessed a “celebratory” ceremony in Ireland, and added that there is nothing worse than a “glum” funeral.
“I like the Irish approach, where it’s celebratory. I remember an Irish woman once wished me well by saying, ‘I wish you a good death.’ And I said, ‘Say what?’ Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“It’s actually a great thing to wish someone. I thought, ‘Well what would I like?’ Jokes, a wake, music, rather than everyone sitting around looking glum,” he added.
Meanwhile, McCartney has been asked by animal rights activists for monetary aid, to help relocate hundreds of kangaroos fated for culling in Canberra.
The activists revealed that they had contacted the singing legend, a member of British animal rights group Viva!, which is protesting against the planned cull of more than 400 kangaroos on Defence Department land. (ANI)
