On this day, Paul McCartney received the Q award for the Best Songwriter, for his album “Flaming Pie“.
From The Beatles Monthly Book N°260, December 1997:
Paul McCartney attended the annual Q Awards ceremony at the Park Lane Hotel in London on 4th November, where he was presented with a Best Songwriter Award for Flaming Pie. Also attending the proceedings was legendary producer Phil Spector, who received a Special Q Award. When video clips of some of Spector’s best-known recordings were played on a giant screen, Paul stood up and applauded an excerpt of John’s “Stand By Me” (which Spector didn’t actually produce!), but when Phil took to the stage to make a speech, Paul got up from his seat and walked out – apparently, in protest at Spector’s overdubs on Let It Be nearly 30 years ago!

The Beatles Diary Volume 2: After The Break-Up 1970-2001
"An updated edition of the best-seller. The story of what happened to the band members, their families and friends after the 1970 break-up is brought right up to date. A fascinating and meticulous piece of Beatles scholarship."
We owe a lot to Keith Badman for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles after the break-up and how their stories intertwined together!
