Paul Says The Beatles Break-Up Was John’s Call

Posted by at 10:50 am on June 19, 2011

In an interview with Absolute Radio’s Geoff Lloyd, Paul McCartney blames the break-up of The Beatles on the late John Lennon. Why you ask? Paul went with the tried “Yoko Factor” reason.

“Basically, me, George and Ringo, said, ‘Does this have to be final? Could we do a couple of gigs or can we think about this tomorrow?'” McCartney says. “But John was off with Yoko and he was saying, ‘No, no, it’s great — I feel a release,’ and all that. So that was kind of final.”

In the same interview, McCartney “criticized” the Queen of England for not knighting his band mate Ringo. All four members of the band are Members of the Order of the British Empire, but only McCartney was knighted (in 1997).
