This Historic Day In Music: The End, Officially

On this day, April 10, in 1970, a British newspaper, the Evening Standard, published an interview with Paul McCartney conducted by journalist Peter Brown.

The piece contained this exchange.

Peter Brown: “Have you (The Beatles) any plans for live appearances?”

Paul McCartney: “No.”

Peter Brown: “Is your break with The Beatles temporary or permanent, due to personal differences or musical ones?”

Paul McCartney: “Personal differences, business differences, but most of all because I have a better time with my family. Temporary or permanent? I don’t know.”

Peter Brown: “Do you foresee a time when Lennon-McCartney becomes an active songwriting partnership again?”

Paul McCartney: “No.”

On April 17, 1970, Apple Records released McCartney, Paul’s first solo album.
