Speaking to Jann Wenner in 1970, Lennon retold the story of his exit from the group, saying: “When I received again [from Toronto] there have been a couple of conferences and Allen stated: ‘Cool it’,
“‘Cause there was quite a bit to do [with The Beatles] business-wise, and it wouldn’t have been appropriate on the time.”
“Then we had been discussing one thing within the workplace with Paul,” he added. “And Paul was saying to do one thing.
“And I stored saying: ‘No, no, no’ to all the pieces he stated. So it got here to a degree that I needed to say one thing.”
The Sean Lennon and Paul McCartney interview shall be out there on three and 4 October on BBC Radio 2.
