Paul McCartney Still Gets Songwriting Advice from John Lennon

Some human bonds, despite the rough edges (not to mention the separation of death) just never really break.

Paul McCartney says he sometimes turns to his old friend and imagines having a conversation with John Lennon when he’s writing a song but stuck on how to proceed. reports that according to Sir Paul, “If I’m at a point where I go, ‘I’m not sure about this,’ I’ll throw it across the room to John,” he explained. “He’ll say, ‘You can’t go there, man.’ And I’ll say, ‘You’re quite right. How about this?’ ‘Yeah, that’s better.’ We’ll have a conversation. I don’t want to lose that.”

Considering that bond, it’s probably not surprising that Paul says the one person he can never forgive is John’s killer, Mark David Chapman.

Paul adds he could pretty much forgive anyone else, but says, “why should I bless him with forgiveness?”

Meanwhile, he seems to have let go of any hostility towards Yoko Ono, saying that ‘If John loved her, there’s got to be something. He’s not stupid,’”

“It’s like, what are you going to do? Are you going to hold a grudge you never really had?”


That means there’s finally one person not holding a grudge against Yoko. 😀
