John Lennon Wanted To Redo Every Beatles Song

(Rock News Desk) Beatles producer Sir George Martin remains intensely proud of his work with the Fab Four but remembers how upset he was when John Lennon said he wanted to re-record everything they'd ever done.

The desk-jockey gave the band their big break in 1962 after every other label they'd approached refused them. He remained with them until their final days eight years later, but he can't forget the moment Lennon offended him.

Martin tells the Independent: "I said to John, 'I can't believe that. Think of all we've done, and you want to re-record everything?' He said, 'Yeah, everything.' And I said, 'What about Strawberry Fields?' He looked at me and said, 'Especially Strawberry Fields.' more on this story
