McCartney: Don’t Blame Yoko

Just imagine—Yoko didn’t do it. Paul McCartney absolves John Lennon’s widow of any blame in the break up of the Beatles in a new interview with David Frost. “She certainly didn’t break the group up. The group was breaking up,” the famed singer and songwriter says in the hourlong special to debut next month. Yoko did lead Lennon to become more interested in avant-garde art, however. “When Yoko came along, part of her attraction was her avant-garde side, her view of things, so she showed him another way to be, which was very attractive to him.”
