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.”
