It's been more than 50 years since Paul McCartney announced The Beatles were going their separate ways and, in a new interview, the rock legend discussed who actually was responsible for initiating the breakup.

"I didn't instigate the split. That was our Johnny," McCartney, 79, said regarding the late John Lennon when talking to BBC Radio 4's "This Cultural Life." The Guardian obtained an advanced copy of the special, which is scheduled to air Oct. 23.
