Paul McCartney Rescues Mark Ronson From Drowning! And Five Other Life-Saving Pop Stars

He's one-fourth of the Beatles and he's arguably one of the most influential musicians of all time. But in Mark Ronson's eyes, Sir Paul McCartney is a goddamn hero.

When Ronson was a child, he and his family spent a lot of time at a beach in Long Island. Coincidently, McCartney and first wife, Linda, also frequented the area, often running into Ronson's parents there.

But the McCartneys and Ronsons got particularly close on the day when Paul saved young Mark from drowning.
