David Crosby Says Paul McCartney And John Lennon Hated Each Other Towards The End


David Crosby recently revealed some information about The Beatles while responding to his fans’ questions on Twitter. After being asked whether he had watched the band’s new documentary, ‘The Beatles: Get Back,’ Crosby stated that he is in the process of watching it, and he knows more about the dramas of the band than what is shown on screen.

‘The Beatles: Get Back’ is a new documentary series directed and produced by Peter Jackson. The documentary is about the band’s experience in creating their iconic final album ‘Let it Be.’ Released in April 1970, the making process of the album marked the last moments of the bandmates, which also drove them apart. The dramatic break-up of The Beatles was worth making a documentary for.

The iconic band broke up for several reasons: their manager Brian Epstein’s death, Lennon’s relationship with Yoko Ono, and Paul McCartney’s disagreements over who gets the band’s copyrights. Even though it was a tough time for them in terms of their personal relationships, in the documentary, this wasn’t reflected. In fact, the fans who watched it thought that they were tighter than ever. Yet, Yoko Ono’s constant presence in The Beatles’ life seemed to have bothered them.

David Crosby recently addressed these remarks and stated that he could feel the tension in the air, and he knows exactly what was going on. He continued to say that Yoko Ono’s constant presence was not normal and revealed that even though they look like they’re having fun, that was the time band members hated each other.

The first fan asked:

“This seems like the place to ask: have you watched The Beatles: Get Back yet? If so, what do you think? For many of us, it is the best opportunity to approach knowing them and how it all went down.”

Crosby replied:

“I am watching it… The air is so thick you can cut with a knife… I could tell you what’s going on, but I don’t think I will.”

A fan wondered:

“Can I ask something? Is it normal for a non-member of a band to just sit in the middle of the band while rehearsing?”

Crosby clarified by stating:

“Not ever.”

Another fan made this statement:

“Having only watched the first episode, I feel like George’s issue is jealousy (left out feeling) of the intense bond and friendship between Paul and John. Their chemistry is everything. Beautiful.”

To the fan’s surprise, Crosby revealed:

“At that point, actually, they hated each other.”

By revealing such details about the band, Crosby’s tweets got immediate attention from the fans, and questions kept coming. Even after half a century since their disbandment, The Beatles remain one of the most discussed bands in rock and roll history, and it doesn’t look like this will change any time soon.
