However, he gave some information about his opinion of the upcoming “Peter Jackson Let It Be” documentary scheduled to be released very soon.
Paul McCartney answered the question: “Why didn’t Paul McCartney keep the Beatles going with George Harrison and Ringo Starr?”
“I hear what you’re saying but the thing is, Howard, that’s like a family. When families break up, it’s to do with the emotion and the emotional pain, you know? Also, you can’t just think of a smart idea like that at the time. You’re hurting too much and so it wasn’t going to happen, you know? We’ve been through too much and I think we were just fed up with the whole thing. But I hear your point.”
“Yeah, I know, I take your point there, I think it was easy to underestimate George because I and John like you said had always written most of the stuff and it had most of the singles. And George was a late bloomer as far as writing is concerned. He wasn’t that interested in the beginning, but then he started to get interested and boy did he bloom, you know? He wrote some of the greatest songs ever… ‘Here Comes the Sun,’ how appropriate is that for now?”
