Yale University gave Paul McCartney an honorary Doctor of Music degree on Monday, saying no one compares to the legendary Beatle. They added that the 65 year old awakened a generation, giving it a fresh approach to rock 'n' roll. Other Yale honorees included U.S. Trade Representative Carla Hills, astronomer Martin Reese, architect Cesar Pelli, poet John Lawrence Ashbery, and more.
McCartney's last major award was in 1996, when he was given a "Sir" title and knighted.
