Paul McCartney Only Paid $1.57 To Play Olympics

Despite all the glitz involved in the Olympic opening ceremonies, Paul McCartney and the other performers were only paid one pound each, or $1.57 US.  Although they would have done it for free, the organizers paid them a very small fee to make the contracts binding.  Sir Paul performed a rendition of “Hey Jude” to open the Olympics.
