London, United Kingdom (4E) – The Beatles star Sir Paul McCartney, in an hour-long interview with David Frost to be broadcast next month, said that their bands’ breakup was not Yoko Ono’s fault.
“She certainly didn’t break the group up, the group was breaking up,” the famous Beatle Lennon left the group in 1970.
The interview also reveals McCartney saying that Lennon would not have written his hit song ‘Imagine” without the influence of Ono. Sir McCartney said, “When Yoko came along, part of her attraction was her avant garde side, her view of things.
“She showed him another way to be, which was very attractive to him. So it was time for John to leave, he was definitely going to leave,” he continued. The group officially disbanded in 1970, and each member has gone on to pursue various individual projects.
The interview with veteran David Foster will also show the famous Beatle talking about his family, children and friends. He will also talk about losing his mother at the age of 14, and how this bonded him to John Lennon, who has lost his at 17.
Meanwhile, this is one of the longest interviews that Sir McCartney has given. He typically only allows 15-minute interviews.
David Frost’s interview for the Al Jazeera English channel marks his return to “Nixon style” interviews, which features 60-minute episodes that will start on November 9. He said, “The longer conversation not just allows us to go into more depth, but relaxes interviewees to talk more about their life and work.”
