DEAR FRIEND:

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Last week in an interview in Los Angeles Yoko finally confirmed a story that really is quite heartening, and i think say’s a lot about about the true friendship of John and Paul. It’s nice to see such calm in the Beatle family waters, even i (a card carrying drama queen) have to admit i like to see everyone chilling and getting along by and large.

Yoko also recently revealed that a lot of Beatle buisness these days is Paul, Yoko, Olivia and Ringo tying up loose ends to ensure the kids arent lumbered with lawsuits and confusion when they finally take the reins. It’s to talk about giving peace a chance, it’s even nicer to see it practiced by the proponants.

Read below for Yoko’s comment ..

“Paul and Linda visited me earlier in the year (1974) in New York, and Paul told me he was going to see John in LA,” she says. “He asked what it would take for me to go back to John, and I said, ‘Well, maybe if he courted me’.”

“I want the world to know that it was a very touching thing that he did for John. He’d heard the rumours that John was in a bad way, in a rough situation, and he was genuinely concerned about his old partner. I was getting calls from big-time music executives who were telling me very rudely that I should pick John up, take him back.

“There was talk that he could be suicidal, although I knew — because John and I were talking almost every day — that things weren’t that bad, and that he wasn’t. Their concern was not out of kindness. They wanted to make sure that one day the Beatles would get back together, and he was the boy they needed. But Paul and Linda were genuinely worried for him, and it was so sweet that he wanted to save John.

“I want people to know how kind and sensitive he was to him. Sure they were two macho, very talented guys, who had strong opinions, arguments, like most brothers. But when it came to the crux of the matter, when Paul thought John was in dire straits, he helped. Even though John was not even asking for help — John, Paul, all of them were too proud to ask anything — he helped. John often said he didn’t understand why Paul did this for us, but he did.
