Sir Paul claims new Beatles’ documentary shows he was not to blame for band splitting


Sir Paul McCartney claims a new documentary about the Beatles shows he was not to blame for the band splitting up.

The film “Get Back” has been made by Peter Jackson – the director of the Lord of the Rings films.


Jackson tells the story behind The Beatles’ final album “Let It Be” which was released in 1970.

The documentary also challenges the belief the group constantly fought and bickered at the time.

After the Beatles broke up Sir Paul filed a lawsuit calling for a legal ending.

He said he wanted to protect the band’s music rights.

As a result, many think he caused the split.

However, Sir Paul maintains footage in “Get Back” disproves that belief.

He said: “It was so reaffirming for me.

“Because it proves that my main memory of The Beatles was the joy and the skill.

“The proof is the footage.

“I bought into the dark side of The Beatles breaking up and thought, ‘Oh God, I’m to blame.’

“I knew I wasn’t, but it’s easy when the climate is that way to start thinking so.

“But at the back of my mind there was always this idea that it wasn’t like that, but I needed to see proof.

“There’s a great photo Linda took, which is my favourite, of me and John working on a song, glowing with joy.

“This footage is the same.

“All four of us having a ball.”
