McCartney: “We cannot blame Yoko Ono for anything”
October 28, 2012
The presenter David Frost interviewed Paul McCartney for a television program that will air next month. However, there were spread some of the statements of the former Beatle.
The most controversial is undoubtedly the one related to the role of Yoko Ono, John Lennon’s widow, in the dissolution of the English band. Remember that for decades many fans around the world blamed her for having generated the conditions for the separation of the Beatles.
“She certainly did not separate the group. The group was disarmed” McCartney said, and added “I do not think that she was responsible for anything,” arguing that Lennon “definitely was going to leave the band”.
On the other hand, he stressed that she allowed Lennon to “exploit his edgy side”, exemplifying with the song “Imagine”.
“I do not think he could had written (” Imagine “) without Yoko, so I could not blame her for anything. When Yoko appeared, part of her attraction was her edgy side, her way of seeing things. She showed him another way of being, which caused him a great attraction. Then it was time for John to go, because he was going to leave” said Paul.
