Unpublished John Lennon Letter Exposes Paul McCartney Dispute

(Classic Rock) A previously unpublished letter from John Lennon to Paul and Linda McCartney showcases the depth of the former Beatles' dispute in 1971.

In the note Lennon says: " "I hope you realize what s**t you and the rest of my 'kind and unselfish' friends laid on Yoko and me... We both 'rose above it' - & forgave you two - so it's the least you can do for us - you noble people."

"Linda - if you don't care what I say - shut up! - let Paul write - or whatever... I'm not ashamed of the Beatles - (I did start it all) - but of some of the s**t we took to make them so big - I thought we all felt that way in varying degrees - obviously not. Do you really think most of today's art came about because of the Beatles? - I don't believe you're that insane - Paul - do you believe that? [Jam]
