Yoko Ono, widow to John Lennon, has been the focus of plenty of fan hatred over the years because it is generally believed that her relationship with him led to the breakup of The Beatles. However, in an upcoming interview with British journalist David Frost -- who you may know from his legendary interview with Richard Nixon, and the film “Frost/Nixon” -- Paul McCartney admits that the end of The Beatles was not Yoko’s fault.
According to The Observer, McCartney says that Yoko “certainly didn't break the group up,” because “the group was breaking up." Though he apparently admits that it wasn’t easy having her around at recording sessions, he says that his main problem was with new manager Allen Klein, as well as the rifts appearing between himself and his four bandmates: "I was fighting against the other three guys who'd been my lifelong soul buddies. I said I wanted to fight Klein."
He also admits that she had a strong influence on John’s song writing. Speaking about “Imagine,” he says “I don't think he would have done that without Yoko,” and explains that part of Yoko’s “attraction” was “her avant garde side, her view of things.” He adds that “she showed him another way to be.” Do you think Yoko Ono broke up The Beatles?
