Sir Paul McCartney has confessed he is visited by John Lennon in his dreams, nearly four decades after his passing.
The Beatles legend has revealed his late bandmate – who died in December 1980 – regularly appears in his dreams, nearly four decades after his passing.
Speaking on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”, he said: “I dream about him. When you’ve had a relationship like that for so long, such a deep relationship, I love when people revisit you in your dreams. I often have band dreams and they’re crazy. I’m often with John … I have a lot of dreams about John. They’re always good.”
Speaking about a 1968 photo of himself and John taken by his late wife Linda, he said: “This is me and John, in Abbey Road. It wasn’t too long before the break-up of the Beatles; this would be the end of our relationship and, at the end, when the break-up happened, it was kind of sour – very difficult to deal with. The rumour started going around that John and I didn’t get on well, we were arch-rivals, that it was very heavy and ugly.
“The strange thing is you sometimes get to believe something, if it’s said enough times. So I used to think: ‘Yeah, it’s a pity, you know, we didn’t get on that well.’ So this picture is a blessing for me. It’s like, this is how we were: this is why we related, or else we couldn’t have collaborated for all that time … Just seeing the joy between us here really helped me, because it reminds me that the idea we weren’t friends is rubbish. We were lifelong friends, our relationship was super-special.”
