In Swing’s mid-60s, The Beatles were taking the world by storm as the four members of the band quickly rose to stardom.

The iconic quartet has been recognized as the biggest band the world has ever seen, consisting of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.

Millions of fans around the world were left heartbroken when four friends from Liverpool parted ways when Paul announced the end of The Beatles more than 50 years ago – in April 1970.

After their incredible time as worldwide rock stars – rumors initially arose that there was animosity between the band members, especially between close friends – Paul and John.

While these rumors quickly spread, since it was revealed, it has been completely different from the truth.

In fact, Sir Paul described the post-match ordeal against his former bandmate as “quite painful”.

He tackles the accusation of hatred between the Fab Four – that initially flared up when the band split after a decade with multiple hit records, celebrity stars, and world tours coming in.

Despite rumors at the time, the rock star insisted the band members never hated each other – despite what was reported in the press.

In an interview with British GQ in 2020, Paul appeared to blame then-manager Allen Klein for the band’s demise – and the threat to their Apple Records label.

“I think when The Beatles broke up, there was probably a misconception that we all hated each other,” he said.

“What I realize now is a family, a gang.

“Families argue and there are disputes. Some people want to do this and some want to do it.”

“The only way for me to save The Beatles and Apple is to sue the band.

“If I didn’t do it, it would all go to Allen Klein,” he added.

“The only way I was given to get us out of that was to do what I did.”

He said his actions helped with the release of “This Great Remastered Anthology and All of the Beatles’ Recordings” as well as the upcoming documentary Get Back by director Peter Jackson. .

Paul will add another chunk of time to his solo career by taking the iconic Glastonbury festival stage as the lead on Saturday, June 25.

The festival is going well for the long-awaited comeback – and will continue until Sunday.

The rock star will take to the stage after the Covid-19 pandemic canceled the festival in both 2020 and 2021.

Paul wasn’t the only event host – along with other stars appearing, including Diana Ross, Kendrick Lamar and Billie Eilish – who made history as the show’s youngest host. .

Before appearing at the festival, the superstar revealed that he “‘loves the cosmic vibes’ of the festival before making his headlines.

Sir Paul – who last topped the bill in 2004 – wrote in his book Lyrics: “I like the idea that we might be at the confluence of ley lines, crisscrossing lines. across the globe and along it are our ancestors. to set up important sites.

“Glastonbury is also said to be the burial place of King Arthur.

“So one way or another, it’s a very special place and it has a very definite vibe,” he added.

“There’s no denying that it has a distinct aura.

“Since the 1960s, I have been interested in constellations, cosmology, and cosmic sound.”
