Sir Paul Mccartney Wants A Light-Hearted Funeral
( CM ) - Former BEATLE SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY wants people to celebrate when he dies - because there is nothing worse than a "glum" funeral.
The 65-year-old singer has already made plans for his funeral as he wants it to be a light-hearted affair - preferring the service to include jokes and not serious tributes about his life.
And MCCartney admits he got the inspiration for an uplifting memorial service after witnessing a "celebratory" ceremony in Ireland.
He says, "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?'
"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."
