London – Paul McCartney rethinks The Beatles’ breakup
Speaking on the issue of BBC Radio 4’s “This Cultural Life”, which will air on October 23, McCartney said he wanted to disband the Beatles, John Lennon.
“I didn’t trigger a split,” McCartney said. “That’s our Johnny.”
Fans of the band have long debated who was responsible for the breakup, and many blamed McCartney. But McCartney said he was the main driver behind Lennon’s desire to “break”.
This was allowed to increase confusion about the divorce because their manager asked the band members to remain silent until several business deals were concluded, McCartney said.

The interview features Peter Jackson’s six-hour documentary detailing the band’s final months. “The Beatles: Get Back,” is set to release on Disney + in November, which is sure to revisit the legendary band’s breakup. McCartney’s comments were first reported by The Observer.
Asked about John Wilson’s decision to expel himself, McCartney replied: “Stop right there. I’m not the person who prompted the split. Oh, no, no. John went into the room one day and said, ‘I’m leaving the Beatles.’ Is it provoking division or not? “
McCartney lamented the breakup, saying the group was still “doing good stuff.”
“This is my band, this is my job, this is my life. So I want it to continue,” he said.
McCartney, 79, previously revealed about the Beatles split, saying that after it happened, he became depressed and turned to alcohol.
“I was supposed to be the guy who broke the Beatles and sued his partners. Said in the interview.
The traditional British band, formed in 1960, lasted for a decade before splitting in the 1970s. McCartney sued the band after controversy with new manager Allen Klein.
“The only way for me to save The Beatles and Apple (Records) is to sue the band,” he told the newspaper, adding that he could not sue Klein directly because he was not a party to it. “
The result, McCartney says, is “terrible.” He was abused.
“I drank too much and did too much of everything,” he told GQ. “And it was insane, but I only know how to do it, because I have no way to save it, because I have no way to work hard all my life and all of them will disappear in the smoke of it. I knew that.
