Although Wilson emphasized that McCartney was the one who sued his band members to terminate the business partnership, he also stated that being accused of disbanding the band “frustrated McCartney for half a century.”
McCartney said: “The key is that John and Yoko start a new life. He wants to put it in a bag. For peace, he wants to lie in bed in Amsterdam for a week.” “You can’t argue.”
McCartney described the breakup as “the most difficult period of my life” and said that if Lennon hadn’t instigated the division, he could have imagined the Beatles would last longer.
“The Beatles are disbanding, this is my band, this is my job, this is my life,” he said. “I want it to continue, I think we are doing some very good things-you know,’Abbey Road’,’Let It Be’, not bad.”
McCartney will release a collection of lyrics commentary edited by Irish poet Paul Malden next month, which includes songs written for the Beatles.
He also told Wilson that before the Beatles started, he and Lennon had written a four-page script of the “kitchen sink” type.
The full interview will be broadcast on October 23.
