The great Paul McCartney of the Beatles took to his page to post a touching tribute, beginning by writing, "Very sad news to wake up to on this raining morning. David was a great star and I treasure the moments we had together."
He continued: "His music played a very strong part in British musical history and I’m proud to think of the huge influence he has had on people all around the world. I send my deepest sympathies to his family and will always remember the great laughs we had through the years. His star will shine in the sky forever."
