Skip to comments.Paul McCartney: Yoko Ono did not break up The Beatles

Sir Paul McCartney has admitted that it wasnt that bad a thing for John Lennon to leave the Beatles and said that Yoko Ono did not break up group.
In an interview with Sir David Frost for Al Jazeera, Sir Paul, 70, said the departure of John Lennon from the band in 1969 was expected by the whole group.
Sir Paul also absolved Yoko Ono, Mr. Lennons then-wife of responsibility for the group breaking up. She certainly didnt break the group up, he said. The group was breaking up and I think she attracted John so much to another way of life that he then went on to, very successfully, add a sort of second part to his career, writing things like Imagine and Give Peace a Chance. I dont think he would have done that without Yoko.

Ooookay. I guess time does change all stories.
I can sleep better now that I know this.
David frost writes for Al Jazera? Is that a joke?
A great band, and I still love their music, but frankly, I would like it if I never hear another detail about their lives ever again or see McCartney or Starr again.
....and drugs weren’t a problem either.
^ Ballad. My error.
I was a huge Beatles fan but I never enjoyed their solo music.
Imagine is the freaking communist manifesto as a lullaby. It is the music they play as they march you to the ovens. It is not a “peace” song.
Since this is not the real Paul McCartney, you can’t believe a word he says. lol /sarc goo-goo-ca-choo
Well here’s another clue for you all, the Walrus was Paul.
You are absolutely correct. It is a hideous song. I’m a boomer, but I never liked the B.
I see an updated version of that, "Give Papa John's Pizza a Chance"
This from one of the richest guys on the planet.
“..he blew his mind out in a car...he hadn’t noticed that the light had changed...”
Yeah, those were fun days...running the album backwards to pick up clues from the “White Album”.
The late BEATLE’s teenage sweetheart, who became his secret wife for six years at the height of Beatlesmania in the 1960s, had returned home early from a holiday in Greece when she encountered her husband and Ono, dressed in bath towels, in her conservatory.
She recalls, “I was so devastated... I felt as though I didn’t even exist in this situation because they were so tightly knit. It was so obvious that they’d been up all night.
“I said the most stupid thing that I’ve ever said and I’ve regretted it ever since.
“I’d come back from holiday; I’d come from Greece to Rome and planned dinner in London - I thought that was a great idea. I came back with friends, got in, saw what was going on and I said, ‘Do you fancy going out? We’ve had breakfast in Greece and lunch in Rome, do you fancy coming out for dinner in London?’
“Yoko didn’t look at me and John said, ‘No thanks.’”
Cynthia was too sweet to deserve this. She also was the mother of his child. Did he care? No.
Seems no one remembers this of the ‘great’ John Lennon. I love his music, but from the guy who said ‘give peace a chance’ give me a break.
Paul's dead. This guy's an actor just doing his job.
He’s a pretty good impersonator. I’ll grant you that ;-)
