Sir Paul McCartney, along with five-time Grammy winner Beck and Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins were kept out of rapper Tyga’s post-Grammys party at The Argyle in Hollywood.
In an incident captured on video by the celebrity news website TMZ.com, Monday, the 73-year-old McCartney approached the night club’s door with his party before being stopped by a bouncer. The group was blocked from entering by the security guard, and continually told to back up.
“How VIP do we gotta get?” McCartney asked, laughing. “We need another hit.”
Another man came out of the building and appeared to tell the group they couldn’t get in. McCartney and his party then walked to their car and moved on to the Republic Records party at Hyde Sunset Kitchen & Cocktail.
TMZ caught up with Tyga as he left The Argyle party and informed him about McCartney’s security run-in.
“He’s a legend,” the rapper responded.
Similarly taken aback was Bow Wow.
“You have to be lying,” he told TMZ. “There’s no way.”
Managers for The Argyle bar couldn’t be reached immediately for a comment.
