Paul McCartney pays tribute to John Lennon

Thursday was a special night for music fans as Paul McCartney appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.

McCartney paid tribute to his late partner, John Lennon, the day after the 30th anniversary of his passing.

Paul played “Here Today,” from 1982’s “Tug Of War,” and dedicated it to Lennon.

"This is a conversation that we never had. I always say to people, 'if you want to say to someone you love them, tell them now, 'cause, you know, there may come a point when it's too late, and you think, 'I wish I'd said that.' "
