Paul McCartney Nearly Pinned Down By Hurricane Sandy

Paul McCartney says he narrowly escaped the path of Hurricane Sandy while on vacation in the Bahamas. The former Beatle says he and his daughter escaped the islands just before the storm blew in.

"I actually just escaped Sandy. I had taken my little one on holiday to the Bahamas. The day I was supposed to be leaving, they told me there was a storm blowing in. I'd just flown out of there and that evening the storm hit. It was terrible. I just scraped out of that," he told Britain's The Sun.

Sir Paul has since signed on to appear at the upcoming "12.12.12: The Concert for Sandy Relief" event set to take place in New York City.

The appropriately named event will take place on December 12 at Madison Square Garden.
