Paul McCartney says John Lennon ‘instigated’ the Beatles’ break-up

For almost 50 years, Sir Paul McCartney has shouldered the blame for breaking up the Beatles.

The supposed evidence was a press release for his 1970 solo album, McCartney, where he revealed he was on a “break” from rock’s biggest band.

Interviewing himself, Sir Paul said he could not “foresee a time when Lennon-McCartney becomes an active songwriting partnership again”.

But in a new BBC interview, he has said the split was prompted by John Lennon.

“I didn’t instigate the split. That was our Johnny,” he told interviewer John Wilson. “I am not the person who instigated the split.

“Oh no, no, no. John walked into a room one day and said I am leaving the Beatles. And he said, ‘It’s quite thrilling, it’s rather like a divorce.’ And then we were left to pick up the pieces.”

Sir Paul McCartney insists he 'wanted to continue' being a Beatle

Sir Paul McCartney “wanted to continue” being in The Beatles.

The ‘Let It Be’ hitmaker has denied he was the band member who “instigated” the iconic Liverpool group’s split in 1970 and insisted it was the late John Lennon – who was tragically murdered aged 40 in 1980 – who was behind their decision to call it a day.

Speaking in an upcoming interview on BBC Radio 4’s new series ‘This Cultural Life’, Macca said: “I didn’t instigate the split. That was our Johnny.

“This was my band, this was my job, this was my life, so I wanted it to continue.”

On the speculation that was rife at the time that their demise was his doing, the 79-year-old music legend insisted: “I had to live with that because that was what people saw. All I could do is say, ‘no’.”

“I am not the person who instigated the split.

“Oh no, no, no. John walked into a room one day and said I am leaving the Beatles. Is that instigating the split, or not?”
