Exposed! Lennon interview that gives reasons for Beatles split!
Newly released tapes of an interview by Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner with John Lennon shortly after The Beatles split in 1970 reveal some of the reasons behind the decision to part ways, something the members of the band have rarely discussed. Previously unpublished, Wenner recently gave the tapes to journalist Mikal Gilmour for a new article on the band's split, which will appear in the next issue of Rolling Stone. Excerpts from the tapes were also aired on US TV show Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday. Audibly angry, Lennon tells Wenner: "We sold out... and I felt sick. We got fed up with being sidemen for Paul". He added that he felt the "music died" when they first rose to fame in the early 60s, saying: "That's why we never improved". On the subject of the band's relationship with his wife, Yoko Ono, Lennon was most angry, telling Wenner: "They despised her... It seemed I had to be happily married to them or Yoko - and I chose Yoko. George insulted her right to her face and I didn't hit him, I don't know why. Ringo was alright but the other two really gave it to us. I'll never forgive 'em".
