Paul McCartney spoke of the dissolution of the Beatles during an interview for BBC Radio 4, clarifying once and for all how it really went: it was John Lennon to want the separation of the Fab Four, not him, on which however fell most of the blame. “It wasn’t me who instigated the split. That was our Johnny”, McCartney said, recalling the “most difficult period of my life”. “This was my band, this was my job, this was my life, so I wanted it to continue. I’m not the person who instigated the split. One day John walked into a room and said ‘I’m leaving the Beatles ‘“, he added.
