New Old John Lennon Interview Revealed

John Lennon

An old interview with John Lennon has recently come to light, revealing that there might have been a great deal of animosity among the post-breakup members. In an interview with Rolling Stone’s Jann Wenner, Lennon unleashed some anger toward former band mates.

“We got fed up with being sidemen for Paul [McCartney],” says Lennon at one point. He also said the “music died” in the group and that “we never improved,” which I think plenty of critics would argue with.

Lennon also shed some light on the Yoko Ono factor, long believed to be a major part of the band’s breakup. “It seemed I had to be happily married to them or Yoko, and I chose Yoko.”

All this and more will be laid bare in a new article, Why The Beatles Broke Up, which will soon appear in Rolling Stone. One does wonder where the hell this interview was before it mysteriously appeared, and why these comments of Lennon’s were never made public to begin with. Could it be a farce? Or could it be that Lennon later regretted his comments and therefore the interview never ran?
