According to London Olympic organizers, former Beatle Paul McCartney and other star performers who took part in Friday's opening ceremony essentially donated their time, receiving a mere pound for their performances.

The nominal fee was offered, to make the Olympics contracts binding, but pales in comparison to the millions big names like McCartney can command for a stadium gig.

Other performers such as Mike Oldfield, Dizzee Rascal and Emeli Sande are also thought to have received the nominal fee.
