Default The incident that split John and Paul

In '68,John and Yoko were living with Paul and his girlfriend at the time,Francie.
One breakfast John gets an "anonymous" note--'You think you and your Jap tart are hot s***'. Paul denies this and then writes it off as a joke
This 'joke' is what I feel ended the Lennon/McCartney partnership.

That doesn't deserve a response.

But you DID respond, even though it was only to say you shouldn't respond.

I think that the incident with the "joke" note from Paul caused trouble between them for sure, but I don't think that one incident or argument alone can be blamed for the deterioration of their relationship - the cracks had begun to show before this happened.

I think more than anything, the whole deal with the note showed that Paul just didn't seem to get it when it came to John and his relationship with Yoko.

No offense... but did anyone "get it" when it came to John and Ms. Ono L?

I sure don't. I think if one of my good friends all of a sudden had a girlfriend or boyfriend and changed their whole scene overnight I'd be kind of dumbfounded and miffed.. Oh wait.. that's highschool *hehehe*

I always thought that it was because Paul was too much of a perfectionist for John to cope with.
