Paul McCartney has spoken out against the persistent rumor that Yoko Ono was behind the Beatle's breakup. In a new interview with David Frost, airing next month, Sir Paul says that the Beatles were ready to split regardless of Lennon's relationship with Ono.
"She certainly didn't break the group up, the group was breaking up," he says during the sit down, which airs November 9 on Frost's show on Al Jazeera.
He adds that while Ono certainly had a major influence on Lennon, he was already prepared to move on with his life away from the Fab Four:
"I don't think you can blame her for anything. When Yoko came along, part of her attraction was her avant-garde side, her view of things, so she showed him another way to be, which was very attractive to him. So it was time for John to leave, he was definitely going to leave."
