Paul McCartney admitted earlier this year that he doesn't consider Yoko Ono the reason behind the breakup of the Fab Four. But what does Yoko have to say about it?
A lost 1987 interview between the late John Lennon’s widow and record executive Joe Smith has recently surfaced, in which she addresses the Beatles’ split, according to the Huffington Post.
The interview’s audio, which is now available in the Library of Congress, features Yoko stating that she believed that all of the band’s members sans McCartney were ready to move on at the end of the 60s, likening the situation to a “divorce.”
Ono explains, “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.”
As all four Beatles went on to have successful solo careers, and Yoko and Paul seem to be getting along these days, we’re hoping the artist’s 25-year-old words don’t cause any rifts between those who survive the band’s legacy.
