The unimaginable happened after the 2016 Grammys — Sir Paul McCartney got turned away from an after party not once, but twice! The rock legend was just as baffled as we were by the snub. Click through to see his hilarious reaction!
This is crazy. Paul McCartney, 73, and Beck were happily on their way to a Grammys after party hosted by Tyga, 26, and were stopped at the door to the club. Wait, what!? The bouncer apparently didn’t know who Paul was, and turned him away not once, but twice! The former Beatle and rock legend had a pretty amazing response to the insane moment. Click through to watch it all go down!
This is actually pretty hard to watch. Paul, his wife Nancy Shevell, Beck and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins are all having a good time, chatting as they wait outside the Argyle nightclub in Hollywood on February 15 for a Grammys after-party…hosted by Tyga, of all people. In a moment that if so baffling, we’re still balking at it, the bouncer doesn’t know who Paul is, and doesn’t let him into the party! CLICK HERE to watch it happen!
Hello, he’s one of the most famous, accomplished musicians in the world — and has been for about 50 years. What rock have you been living under, dude? Paul looked incredulous when the bouncer turns him back, and is overheard joking to his crew “How VIP do I gotta get?” So damn funny! Then, the bouncer turns the group away a shocking second time. Seriously?? Paul walks away from the door, giving up and telling Beck and Taylor: “We need another hit guys, we need another hit.”
That joke is particularly funny because Paul could literally never release another song again, and still be one of the most incredible musicians the world has ever known. The man has 20 Grammys; he should be able to just waltz into any Grammys party he damn well pleases! This is all too puzzling when you factor in that Tyga threw the bash that turned Paul away.
I don't control the door. I had no knowledge SIR PAUL was there. I just performed and left.

Though he didn’t seem too broken up about the bizarre incident, Tyga defended himself on Twitter on February 16, insisting that he would never turn Paul away, and that he didn’t even know that he was trying to get into the party! “I don’t control the door. I had no knowledge SIR PAUL was there. I just performed and left,” Tyga tweeted.
Good point; Tyga wasn’t the bouncer who didn’t recognize Paul, but he’s still going to get a lot of heat for this one! But hey — we’re sure that Paul, Nancy, Beck and Taylor had a great night wherever they went next, because nobody else would make the mistake of turning him away!
