Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, And More Pens After Queen Elizabeth II’s Death
The death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8 made headlines everywhere in the world. Like many others, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, and other music icons decided to pay tribute to the Queen with their recent tweets.
Queen Elizabeth II passed away at 96 peacefully at Balmoral Castle in Scotland. Throughout her reign, the Queen witnessed many historical events, like the horrors of World War II, the death of former Princess Diana, and of course, the global COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, the Queen was the world’s longest-serving monarch.
Almost all British music acts mourned the death of their Queen in their recent tweets. The Beatles’ Paul McCartney wrote a simple tweet, wishing the Queen rests in peace. On the other hand, Mick Jagger stated that the monarch was always there his whole life, describing her as the ‘much-beloved grandmother of the nation.’
Ozzy Osbourne said he mourns with the rest of the country because it’s devastating thinking of England without her. Stevie Nicks also penned a lengthy tribute to the monarch. According to Nicks, the Queen inspired her with her strength, smartness, and devotion.
Here is what Paul McCartney tweeted:
“God bless Queen Elizabeth II. May she rest in peace. Long live The King. Paul McCartney.”
In his tweet, Mick Jagger chose to express his sincere thoughts about the Queen:
“Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II has always been there for my whole life. In my childhood, I can recall watching her wedding highlights on TV. I remember her as a beautiful young lady, to the much-beloved grandmother of the nation. My deepest sympathies are with the Royal family.”
Ozzy Osbourne’s tweet read:
“I mourn with my country the passing of our greatest Queen. With a heavy heart, I say it is devastating the thought of England without Queen Elizabeth II.”
Stevie Nicks wrote a lengthy tribute to the Queen, which said the following:
“Elizabeth became Queen on February 6, 1952. Can you imagine having a job for that long? She said, ‘My whole life will be devoted to your service — whether long or short.’ She would never look away. She knew when to get in the way and when to get out of the way to think about what she would do next.
She was very smart and beautiful, and she made it clear to all the brilliant men who surrounded her that she was the Queen — and they were not. She showed all women how strong they could be — for 70 years, she did this. She inspired me. She was an anointed Queen, a beautiful Queen, and an unforgettable woman. The world is an empty place without her.”
