Good call . 7 on stage. He's a Sir, but not a BE. Finally someone for Sir Paul to "lord" it over. I guess there's a whole different category of British honorifics.
Were Eric and Bernie not knighted when they got their MBEs or is it just a Wiki lapse?The title of Knight Bachelor (Latin: Eques auratus, lit. 'gilded knight', abbreviated eq. aur.) is the basic rank granted to a man who has been knighted by the monarch but not inducted as a member of one of the organised orders of chivalry; it is a part of the British honours system. Knights Bachelor are the most ancient sort of British knight (the rank existed during the 13th-century reign of King Henry III), but Knights Bachelor rank below knights of chivalric orders. A man who is knighted is formally addressed as "Sir [First Name] [Surname]" or "Sir [First Name]" and his wife as "Lady [Surname]".
