Paul McCartney Reveals Yoko Ono’s Presence in the Beatles’ Recording Studio Was Upsetting

Paul McCartney

Paul McCartney recently revisited a significant moment from The Beatles’ history when they were recording “Let It Be” in the studio, and Yoko Ono was a constant presence. The Beatles disbanded in 1970 after releasing their final album, “Let It Be,” and the breakup led to numerous theories, with many fans holding Yoko Ono responsible.

In a recent episode of his podcast, “McCartney: A Life in Lyrics,” McCartney discussed The Beatles’ complex relationship with John Lennon’s partner, Yoko Ono. He acknowledged that her presence in the recording studio was disruptive. He stated, “Yoko being literally in the middle of the recording session was something you had to deal with.” McCartney explained that the idea was that if John wanted her there, then she should be there. Despite this, he admitted that anything that “disturbs us is disturbing.” For McCartney and the other members of The Beatles, Ono’s presence was an interference in their workspace, but they chose to go with the flow and kept their feelings bottled up.

While McCartney was also blamed for the breakup of The Beatles, decades later, he clarified that it was John Lennon who initially suggested disbanding the group, as Lennon believed they couldn’t work together anymore. Lennon informed the band of his decision to leave before the actual breakup, which some fans initially blamed on McCartney. Ultimately, Lennon’s departure led to the band’s breakup, despite efforts by The Beatles’ manager at the time, Allen Klein, to negotiate and keep them together. McCartney also revealed in the documentary series “The Beatles: Get Back” that tensions had arisen due to a two-week deadline to write and record an album, almost leading to an earlier breakup. At that point, the members began to focus on other projects, with Ringo Starr filming “The Magic Christian,” Lennon focusing on Ono, and George Harrison expressing creative differences.
