Paul McCartney Says John Lennon Broke the Beatles Up


For years, many Beatles fans have blamed Paul McCartney for the breakup of the Beatles, since he was the one who broke the news to the public, but in a new interview with the BBC, he says the actual break-up was all John Lennon, saying "that was our Johnny coming in one day and saying 'I'm leaving the group.'" According to McCartney, he thought the band was working on some good material, and he wanted to continue, but John, in Paul's words, "rather like a divorce," walked into a room and said I am leaving the Beatles." McCartney went on to say John was looking to start a new life with Yoko, and when the band actually knew they were breaking up, they had to keep it secret so their manager could finalize some unfinished business. Paul says he was the one who "let the cat out of the bag," while he was promoting his 1970 solo album because he "was fed up of hiding it." Here's much more from Sir Paul.
