YOKO UNLEASHED: ‘Paul Broke Up The Beatles’

A lot of Beatles fans credit Yoko Ono with breaking up the lads, but in a newly discovered interview from the 80s conducted by the British press she seems to be saying that it was actually Paul McCartney who broke up the Beatles….

 YOKO UNLEASHED: Paul Broke Up The Beatles

“The Beatles were getting very independent. Each one of them [was] getting independent. John, in fact, was not the first who wanted to leave the Beatles. [We saw] Ringo [Starr] one night with Maureen [Starkey Tigrett], and he came to John and me and said he wanted to leave. George [Harrison] was next, and then John. Paul [McCartney] was the only one trying to hold the Beatles together. But the other three thought Paul would hold the Beatles together as his band. They were getting to be like Paul’s band, which they didn’t like,” she says.

Conversely it has been McCartney who has always tried his darndest to dispel rumors Ono was behind the band’s break up.

“She [Ono] certainly didn’t break the group up, the group was breaking up.” Going on to credit her for introducing Lennon to new styles of music through culture and art.

“I don’t think he would have done that without Yoko, so I don’t think you can blame her for anything. When Yoko came along, part of her attraction was her avant garde side, her view of things, so she showed him another way to be, which was very attractive to him. So it was time for John to leave, he was definitely going to leave [one way or another].”
