Tyler Honors McCartney In DC

In his intro for the Kennedy Center Honors tribute to Paul McCartney Sunday (12/5), actor Alec Baldwin proclaimed that the world will never recover from Beatlemania.  A happily afflicted Steven Tyler described the opportunity to honor McCartney at the event as one of his proudest moments as an artist.  The Aerosmith front man, who Sir Paul contacted just recently to ask him to sing a medley of Abbey Road songs during the Kennedy Center Honors segment for the former Beatle (story), said, 'I've done a lot of things and I've been a lot of places.  But I've never been prouder than I am standing here at the corner of Pennsylvania Avenue and Abbey Road.'   Willie Nelson and Sheryl Crow sang Today I Started Loving You Again for fellow honoree Merle Haggard, and the program closed with James Taylor and Mavis Staples delivering versions of Let it Be and Hey Jude.  Highlights of the program will air on CBS-TV Dec. 28.
