McCartney neighbors mad about wedding party noiseLONDON - Once a rocker, always a rocker.
Former Beatle Paul McCartney, known in his early days for the earsplitting volume of his Little Richard covers, got in trouble with noise enforcement officers who visited his London home early Monday morning after neighbors complained about the loud music coming from his late-night wedding party.
Officials said McCartney - one of the most famous musicians in the world - agreed to turn down the music. He does not face any legal problems because of the raucous party, which followed his Sunday afternoon wedding to Nancy Shevell, the dark-haired American who became his third wife after four years of dating.
“Officers visited and the volume was reduced on request,” said Andrew Ralph, head of noise and licensing at Westminster City Council. “No further action is being taken.”
McCartney’s neighbors in the affluent St. John’s Wood neighborhood, which also includes the Abbey Road studios where the Beatles recorded their classic albums, were complaining about recorded music, not McCartney’s own performance, which included an emotional new ballad he wrote for his 51-year-old bride.
