Despite the rumors, Generalissimo Paul McCartney is still not dead. He’s alive and well and playing in a succession of increasingly private NYC gigs, beginning last year with the Letterman stage marquee, then Citi Field, then Ringo Starr’s Radio City birthday bash. This time, Macca is performing at the Apollo Theater in an invite-only affair to celebrate satellite radio company Sirius XM reaching 20 million subscribers and their new Paul-centric program. Considering the 1,700-seat capacity of the Apollo, the odds of getting in are so tiny, most calculators won’t display the number. Even the guy who dances bad singers offstage on Amateur Night can’t get in. . . so good luck!
