McCartney Calls Lennon Killer 'Jerk of All Jerks'
Lennon's killer Mark Chapman (in jail) reportedly said he had heard voices in his head telling him to kill the musician. McCartney said: "The phrase kept coming in my head, 'The jerk of all jerks.' It was just like 'this is just a jerk, this is not even a guy politically motivated, it's just some total random thing.'"
Referring to the Beatles' break-up in April 1970, McCartney said, "We got to a point where we got really crappy over business." They didn't see each other for four years. McCartney said they became "good friends" again after becoming new fathers in the mid-1970s
McCartney said the fighting between them had become "boring" and they bonded over "normal stuff" - being new fathers and bread-making recipes. "The story about the break-up, it's true but it's not the main bit, the main bit was the affection." McCartney spoke on the Jonathan Ross Show on ITV.
