Paul McCartney Places Beatles Breakup Squarely on John Lennon

While Morrissey has come out swinging against the Queen of England, calling her the "ultimate dictator," Sir Paul McCartney has a different issue to take up with her Royal Highness -- he thinks his fellow bandmate in the Beatles, Ringo Starr, should be knighted. While all four Beatles enjoy MBE status (Member of the Order of the British Empire), only McCartney was knighted in a ceremony that took place in 1997. Speaking to Geoff Lloyd on Absolute Radio this week, McCartney joked that he would like to poke his head in the Queen's quarters and suggest that the only other living Beatle receive the same honor.Perhaps more significantly, NME reports that during the same interview, McCartney placed the blame for the Beatles' breakup squarely on John Lennon. "Basically me, George [Harrison] and Ringo said, 'Does this have to be final? Could we do a couple of gigs or can we think about this tomorrow?' But John was off with Yoko [Ono] and he was saying 'No, no, it's great -- I feel a release,' and all that. So that was kind of final."

Like the beatles have said before... They were like our own families, growing up we think we'll always be the same but something always changes.

We grow up and our brothers and sisters leave home and start their own families, and thats what happened to the beatles.

for better or for worse

yes thats true, I think all the bitterness arrived when John & Paul integrated their wives into their 'jobs' Yoko and Linda were never going to get on were they, and John & Paul were determined to involve them. Whereas Mick & Keith never did that.
