has revealed that he still talks to John Lennon
about music making decisions.
In an interview with Rolling Stone
(via Classic Rock
), McCartney explained how his former Beatles song
-writing partner still offers him advice from beyond the grave:
"If I’m at a point where I go, ‘I’m not sure about this,' I'll throw it across the room to John. He'll say, 'You can't go there, man.' I'll say, 'You're quite right - how about this?' 'Yeah, that's better.'"We’ll have a conversation. I don't want to lose that."
McCartney also talked about how he has gotten past the grudge he held against Lennon
's wife Yoko Ono
, and how they have become closer in recent years:
"I thought, 'If John loved her, there's got to be something; he's not stupid."It's like, what are you going to do - are you going to hold a grudge you never really had? George would say to me, 'You don't want stuff like that hanging around in your life.'"
