    Obvious Paul McCartney: John Lennon responsible for Beatles breakup

    FOX News Staff




    Paul McCartney has revisited the breakup of The Beatles, flatly disputing the suggestion that he was responsible for the groupís demise.

    Speaking on an episode of BBC Radio 4ís "This Cultural Life" that is scheduled to air on Oct. 23, McCartney said it was John Lennon who wanted to disband The Beatles.

    "I didnít instigate the split," McCartney said. "That was our Johnny."

    The bandís fans have long debated who was responsible for the breakup, with many blaming McCartney. But McCartney said Lennonís desire to "break loose″ was the main driver behind the split.

    Confusion about the breakup was allowed to fester because their manager asked the band members to keep quiet until he concluded a number of business deals, McCartney said.

    The interview comes ahead Peter Jacksonís six-hour documentary chronicling the final months of the band. "The Beatles: Get Back," set for release in November on Disney+, is certain to revisit the breakup of the legendary band. McCartneyís comments were first reported by The Observer.

    When asked by interviewer John Wilson about the decision to strike out on his own, McCartney retorted: "Stop right there. I am not the person who instigated the split. Oh no, no, no. John walked into a room one day and said, ĎI am leaving The Beatles.í Is that instigating the split, or not?"

    McCartney expressed sadness over the breakup, saying the group was still making "pretty good stuff."

    "This was my band, this was my job, this was my life. So I wanted it to continue," McCartney said.

    I always thought Yoko was the wedge that caused the split.

    If you use it for your doorbell Halloween night you'll get to keep most of your candy.

    Are those the sounds she made when John was railing her in the ass back in the day?
