Paul McCartney says the newly updated version of The Beatles' Let it Be film, which has been re-titled Get Back, actually exonerates him from being the cause of the band’s breakup.
says McCartney said in London's Sunday Times: “It was so reaffirming for me.” He added, “Because it proves that my main memory of the Beatles was the joy and the skill."
McCartney also said the footage to come out will serve as proof of that. McCartney added, “I bought into the dark side of the Beatles breaking up and thought, ‘Oh God, I’m to blame.’ I knew I wasn’t, but it’s easy when the climate is that way to start thinking so... But at the back of my mind there was always this idea that it wasn’t like that, but I needed to see proof. There’s a great photo [my late wife] Linda took, which is my favorite, of me and John working on a song, glowing with joy. This footage is the same. All four of us having a ball.”
Get Back is expected to open in theaters next August, and a book about the film will be published within that same month.
