Sir Paul McCartney wanted to “continue” to be in The Beatles.
The “Let It Be” hit maker denied being a band member who “incited” the division of the iconic Liverpool group in 1970, and was tragically killed in 1980 at the age of 40 by the late John. It’s a day that Lennon claimed was behind the decision to make a call.
In a future interview with BBC Radio 4’s new series “This Cultural Life,” Macca said: That was our Johnny.
“This is my band, this is my job, this was my life, so I wanted to continue it.”
A 79-year-old musical legend argued about the prevailing speculation when their demise was his act: All I can do is say “no”. “
“I’m not the one who caused the division.
“No, no, no. John came into the room one day and said he was leaving the Beatles. Is that causing the division?”
Lennon told the other members of the band that he wanted to leave the group.
And McCartney suggested that other members, including drummer Ringo Starr, 81, and the late George Harrison, who died in 2001 at the age of 58, had reached the same time in life, even if they didn’t transfer. .. At that time, we will realize it.
The “Penny Lane” star had previously had a meeting saying “John came in and I’m leaving the group.” And in retrospect, he had reached that stage of his life.
Macca also previously denied that the “intrusive” nature of Lennon’s wife Yoko Ono caused the Beatles to collapse.
Many fans of Fabfor blame the 86-year-old musician for the division of the iconic band, but the bassist suggested she was so involved because the couple loved each other. ..
He states: “I thought she was in the way because she was sitting in a recording session, but it never happened.
“But in retrospect, you think,’The man loved her completely, and you have to respect it.’ So we did, and I do.”
The full interview will air on BBC Radio 4 on October 23rd.
