    Paul McCartney Reflects on The Beatles Breakup – Says John Lennon ‘Instigated’ it

    Published on

    Paul was criticized for 50 years for the group’s split

    For 50 years, Sir Paul McCartney was blamed for the reason why The Beatles broke up.

    It began when he had a press release for his 1970 solo album. At that time, Paul happened to admit that he was on a “break” from the band. While interviewing himself, Paul said that could not “foresee a time when Lennon-McCartney becomes as active songwriting partnership again.” All these confirmed that Paul was indeed the catalyst. However, that has now changed.

    John’s idea

    McCartney revealed in a new BBC interview that John Lennon was the one who prompted the split. “I didn’t instigate the split. That was our Johnny,” he said to interviewer John Wilson. He said John once walked into a room and said that he was leaving the Beatles. John added that it was quite thrilling, like a divorce. The other bandmates were left to pick up the pieces.

    Wilson then asked if the band would have continued, and Paul said it could have. But the entire point was that John wanted a new life with Yoko (Ono) and they couldn’t argue with that. Paul added that it was the most difficult period in his life.

    Dispute with Allen Klein

    Paul said that their break-up news festered due to their new manager Allen Klein. Paul sued the entire band later on so that their music doesn’t fall under Klein’s custody. He made sure to never align with Klein as soon as he took up the job. Paul was at odds with his teammates in those years, but they thanked him for it years later.

    Hear the full interview on the new BBC Radio 4 series This Cultural Life, which will be broadcast on October 23.
