John Lennon Leaves the Beatles (1969)

Tensions were high during the recording sessions for what were to be the Beatles' final albums. John Lennon described working on Let It Be as "hell." Exactly a month after finishing "I Want You (She's So Heavy)"—the last time all four Beatles would be in the studio together—Lennon told his bandmates that he was going solo. To avoid jeopardizing sales of Abbey Road, which was released just days later, Lennon's departure was kept a secret. When was the group's dissolution formalized? More...

I'm named after a Beatles song.
When it came up in conversation once, my young niece innocently asked: "Which one?".
My sister nearly choked on her drink laughing.
I answered: "I am the eggman".
My sister's choking got worse.

"When I got back [from Toronto] there were a few meetings and Allen said, 'Cool it,' 'cause there was a lot to do [with The Beatles] business-wise, and it wouldn't have been suitable at the time. Then we were discussing something in the office with Paul and Paul was saying to do something, and I kept saying, 'No, no, no' to everything he said. So it came to a point that I had to say something. So I said, 'The group's over, I'm leaving.' Allen was there, and he was saying, 'Don't tell.' He didn't want me to tell Paul even. But I couldn't help it, I couldn't stop it, it came out. And Paul and Allen said they were glad that I wasn't going to announce it, like I was going to make an event out of it. I don't know whether Paul said, 'Don't tell anybody,' but he was damn pleased that I wasn't. He said, 'Oh well, that means nothing really happened if you're not going to say anything.' So that's what happened."

John Lennon, 1970
