Sir Paul McCartney has been voted America's most beloved beatle.
More than 30 per cent of those surveyed for a new Zogby International poll chose MCCartney as their favourite Fab Four member.
Over 4,800 American adults were asked for their votes.
Sixteen per cent opted for John Lennon, who was shot dead in 1980, while the other deceased band member, George Harrison, was third with 10 per cent. Ringo Starr was last.
John Zogby, CEO of Zogby International, says, "Americans over 30 and those over 65 love Paul. It must be the crazy love songs and Yesterday. Interestingly, John is the main answer for people who never go to church."
