Lennon Opens Up About Beatles' Breakup

As the biggest band in the world was breaking up, John Lennon sat down with Rolling Stone to explain what happened in an extensive, groundbreaking interview about the fall of the Beatles. "After Brian [Epstein] died, we collapsed," Lennon said. "Paul took over and supposedly led us. But what is leading us, when we went round in circles? We broke up then. That was the disintegration."
