Speaking to Jann Wenner in 1970, Lennon retold the story of his exit from the group, saying: “When I got back [from Toronto] there were a few meetings and Allen said: ‘Cool it’,
“‘Cause there was a lot to do [with The Beatles] business-wise, and it wouldn’t have been suitable at the time.”
“Then we were discussing something in the office with Paul,” he added. “And Paul was saying to do something.
“And I kept saying: ‘No, no, no’ to everything he said. So it came to a point that I had to say something.”
The Sean Lennon and Paul McCartney interview will be available on 3 and 4 October on BBC Radio 2.
