Perhaps more significantly, NME reports that during the same interview, McCartney placed the blame for the Beatles' breakup squarely on John Lennon. "Basically me, George [Harrison] and Ringo said, 'Does this have to be final? Could we do a couple of gigs or can we think about this tomorrow?' But John was off with Yoko [Ono] and he was saying 'No, no, it's great -- I feel a release,' and all that. So that was kind of final."
Sir Paul McCartney has had a lot to say about the Beatles as of late. Earlier this month he attended the fifth anniversary of the Beatles LOVE by Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas and gave an unannounced speech at the end of it. All this timed with some fancy repackaged rereleases from his solo catalog, new plans for an upcoming all-covers album, and the announcement that he'll perform two shows in New York's Yankee Stadium as well as engagements in Chicago, Detroit and Cincinnati this summer. You know -- stuff knights do.
