“We went off in the car,” (Yoko) later told Philip Norman, “and he turned to me and said, ‘That’s it with the Beatles. From now on, it’s just you – OK?’ I thought, ‘My God, those three guys were the ones entertaining him for so long. Now I have to be the one to take the load.’”

Mikal Gilmore’s stunning, clear-eyeds, fantastic ROLLING STONE article from a few years back, “Why The Beatles Broke Up”. The final word on a lot of different subjects and an absolutely great piece of writing whether you’re a Beatles fan or not.

EDIT: i wrongly used the word ‘swooning’ in the above to describe the piece and yet the piece is anything but. any swooning was wholly my own. sloppy writing on my part. sorry.
