Paul McCartney says John Lennon split the Beatles – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

In a new BBC interview, Sir Paul has said John Lennon prompted the break-up of the Beatles.

For almost 50 years, blame for the split has fallen on Sir Paul McCartney.

The supposed evidence was a press release for his 1970 solo album, McCartney, where he revealed he was on a “break” from rock’s biggest band.

But now Sir Paul has said: “I didn’t instigate the split. That was our Johnny.”

“John walked into a room one day and said I am leaving the Beatles. And he said, ‘It’s quite thrilling, it’s rather like a divorce.’ And then we were left to pick up the pieces.”

John Lennon said that the reason that they broke up was because mccartney was not putting enough effort into the songs was trying to destroy them by changing them. Mccartney stated that he felt that Lennon was trying to be controlling. In 1970 the beatles were set to release an album on April 24 and mccartney wanted his solo album to release a week before (april 17) Lennon and Harrison said that releasing the two albums so close together was “stupid” and so The Beatles had told the record company to postpone McCartney’s solo album until June 4. That led to mccartney upset and rage against them.. Mccartney also tried to get the song writing credits changed from Lennon-mccartney to mccartney-Lennon. I feel like Paul McCartney is the main cause of The Beatles breakup let's break up and now that him and Ringo Starr as the only one's left alive he will proudly say that it was John Lennon that fucked everything up but before he was claiming it was Yoko Ono, so hes just a pathological liar

John couldn’t stand another minute of your horrible voice!

AliciaLand October 11, 2021 - 11:23 PM

This isn't breaking news as it's been known for years.

This is why meritocracy is important, hiring journalists based on merit rather than box ticking. Sir Paul talked about this in detail years ago. If the BBC still hired qualified journalists, they would know this. Absolute bloody amatuers. It's high time the license fee was abolished.

Kaian Ácrata October 11, 2021 - 11:24 PM

That's old news. He said that in an interview years ago.

ABC's of Salvation

A – Admit you're a sinner in need of a Saviour (Romans 3:10, 6:23)

B – Believe that Jesus Christ died for your sins (1Corinthians 15:3-4)

C – Call upon the Name of the Lord and be saved (Romans 10:9-10, 10:13)

Believe what Jesus Christ did for you on the cross and be saved. As Paul said in the book of Ephesians 2:8-9For by grace are you saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God. Not of works lest any man should boast.

BELIEVE & BE SAVED

Christina Massey-Stucki October 11, 2021 - 11:27 PM

He’s a resentful little old man. A shame, considering how amazing a songwriter he is, just a bit too clingy to the past.

The Beatles were a terrible boy-band anyway.

Daniel Warren October 11, 2021 - 11:41 PM

Why is this news? It's in ANY credible book on the history of the Beatles, I remember reading it in 2004 and Paul's said the same thing on record before.

James Nelson October 11, 2021 - 11:42 PM

We've known this for decades now… not new news

Megan Hughes October 11, 2021 - 11:42 PM

This is a new news. He said months ago that John was the reason why The Beatles broke up. But that isn't true it was Yoko Ono that broke up The Beatles.

Old Man October 11, 2021 - 11:43 PM

Ok then

Ge Mail October 11, 2021 - 11:44 PM

This story is 100% fake news. This is such old news. BBC this is sad for you

bearsagainstevil October 11, 2021 - 11:45 PM

My cousin Sonia had tickets to see the Beatles when they split and got a letter saying she could have a refund or tickets the next time they performed. She chose the latter but they never did perform we still have the letter although Sonia died many years ago in the 1970s . She would have been interested that john caused the split

Elly Bell October 11, 2021 - 11:47 PM

Mimimi…who cares and Yoko Ono just made better love to him.

Let him rest, still milking off a dude that died years ago. Shame on you BBC, don’t put the spotlight on someone who isn’t here to defend themselves

Talking shit about a dead man

andrew ashdown October 12, 2021 - 12:05 AM

Why is this news? It's all on record – in every book, film and video – the meeting where Lennon announced his departure – PLUS McCartney has recently said – what was obvious to anyone – that Ono was the cause – I mean not Ono per se but Lennon's fixation on her – bringing her into the studio – which basically broke up the 4-man dynamic. They may have been drifting apart – but she was the final straw. It's just too obvious to even discuss.

Magicgazz October 12, 2021 - 12:05 AM

Finished off with speculation.

Please do better!
