John Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono claims that Paul McCartney is the reason why the Beatles split and it was not, as many others claim, her, at the root of the band's dis-integration.
In a recently un-archived interview she said that the Beatles were getting very independent. Each one of them was getting independent.
She added that Ringo Starr one night came to John and her, and said he wanted to leave. George Harrison was next, and then John.
She also said that Paul McCartney was the only one trying to hold the Beatles together, but that the other 3 thought Paul would hold the Beatles together as his band, and they were getting to be like Paul's band, which they did not like.
