The Beatles: Were John Lennon and Paul McCartney REALLY friends?

Thursday, October 15, 2020

The Beatles was a foursome who, throughout their time working with each other, had some tricky relationships to work through. Eventually the group split up and each member released their own solo work, to differing levels of success. Lennon-McCartney was a famous songwriting brand - but were they really friends?

The pair fought throughout their time in the band, and the songwriters did disagree a number of times during their careers, including when it came to songwriting credits on their songs.

In time for John’s 80th birthday, however, Sir Paul McCartney spoke about how happy he was to reunite with his friend before his death.

He has told John’s son Sean Ono Lennon on BBC Radio 2: “I always say to people, one of the great things for me was that after all The Beatles rubbish and all the arguing and the business, you know, business differences really ... that even after all of that, I'm so happy that I got it back together with your dad.
