At long last, Paul explains relationship with John

Lennon’s outbursts due to drugs and showing off


 

In an interview with Radio Times, McCartney spoke more openly about his relationship with Lennon than perhaps he ever has. McCartney told the magazine that the abrasive image of Lennon is “seriously flawed” and attributed Lennon’s outbursts to drugs and showing off. “John said so much crap that he later said he hadn’t meant,” he said. Noting that his favorite song as a child was “a smoochy old standard that his mum liked,” called Little White Lies. McCartney also noted that “he was a very soft-centered guy and we had a lot more in common than people think. Whatever bad things John said about me, he would also slip his glasses down to the end of his nose and say, ‘I love you.’ ”

At long last, Paul explains relationship with John

  1. This is to cover up the recent tapes made by Lennon right after the break up that have come to light : quite hilarious as John said the main reason for the break up was that they were all tired of being Paul's sidemen = ouch! .. and get this appar4ently George was the worst ot on giving John a hard time re: Yoko – little Georgie who would have thunk.

  2. Interesting stuff from Sir Paul as he reminesces about the hazy 60's. It is definitely something to keep in mind with Lennon…drug usage contributes to feelings and opinions that are often misrepresented verbally. Great to see Mccartney rockin' New York on Letterman a short time ago. Long live 'The Cute Beatle'!

  3. John liked acid.
    People on acid say lots of interesting things – you might say they tend to rant at times.
    40 years later, those rants become deep, insightful glimpses into the inner machinery…… or they're still rants…….
