Paul McCartney Tells Howard Stern John Lennon Broke Up The Beatles

Paul McCartney was a guest on the Howard Stern radio show in New York last week and set the blame on The Beatles break-up with John Lennon.

Stern said he didn’t really know who broke up The Beatles, no-one did. “I do,” said Paul. “John. There was a meeting where John came in and said ‘hey guys I am leaving the group’. He had found Yoko and John loved strong women. His mother was a strong woman, his aunty who brought him up was a strong woman but, bless her, his first wife wasn’t a strong woman”.

Paul admitted it was hard for the others when John brought Yoko in. “John had met up with Yoko and even thought we thought it was intrusive, because she used to sit in on sessions and we had never had anything like that, but the guy was totally in love with her. You have to respect that”

Sir Paul also talked about weaponising songs at each other. Paul McCartney’s ‘Too Many People’ was an attack on John.

That was your first mistake
You took your lucky break and broke it in two
Now what can be done for you?
You broke it in two

“We got over it and I am glad we got over it, because if we hadn’t and John goes and gets killed, I don’t know how I would have dealt with that. We got it back together and I would ring him and see him in New York,” Paul said.

Sir Paul McCartney was in New York for the launch of his 18th solo album ‘Egypt Station’. He released the video for ‘Fuh You’ today.

Mingling amongst the crowd were Meryl Streep, John Bon Jovi, Chris Rock, Sean Lennon. See if you can spot Meryl Streep during ‘Letting Go’.

Bob Dylan still has the ability and surprising agility to shoot the occasional missile deep into our hearts and minds. The title of his latest release ‘Murder Most Foul’ comes directly from Shakespeare’s Hamlet, a fitting reference since Bob’s opus deals with the assassination of John F Kennedy, surely the last great leader of the U.S.A. - his death indeed a ‘Murder Most Foul’.
