Home Celebrity Paul McCartney, Congrats on Engagement to Nancy Shevell

It looks like Paul McCartney popped the question to Nancy Shevell, and they’re getting married. Shevell, who was married to New Yorker Bruce Blakeman (a failed Republican candidate for different positions) and has a teenage daughter, is terrific. I’ve gotten to know her a little bit over the last couple of years. Shevell, who’s 51 but looks ten years younger, has taken her time getting to be a Beatle girlfriend. Slowly but surely she’s adapted to being with an icon, and maybe the most famous rock and roll star in the world other than Mick Jagger. Good for Paul. After his long and happy marriage to Linda Eastman, McCartney tried a second marriage to Heather Mills. We all know how ill fated that was; I’ll never forget Mills telling me she knew no Beatles song but was a big fan of Colin Hay of Men at Work. Yikes! Shevell is more like Linda in many ways: from a good family, smart, and has her own money.They also each went to college in Arizona, which is pretty unusual. Nancy sits on the board of the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority and works for her family’s trucking company. Obla Di, Obla Da, life goes on. Congrats!

  1. I know this is late, but I just now saw this. How is being a fan of Colin Hay a bad thing, exactly?? He’s an amazing talent, still going strong in his solo career. Don’t judge Colin by Heather Mills–even though Heather & Paul McCartney ended up being friends with Colin & his wife Cecilia Noel, doing charity work together (Paul even did Colin’s dishes once!). Paul was/is a fan of Colin Hay’s as well. Do your research, man. Maybe you didn’t mean to sound insulting, but it’s hard to see it any other way.

    A Colin Hay and a Beatles Fan….it’s possible!
