Sydney, Feb 17 (ANI): Paul McCartney is relieved that the Beatles scrapped reunion plans in the 1970s when all the members of the Fab Four were still alive because the get together could have wrecked the band's legacy.
In a new Rolling Stone interview, the 69-year-old rocker confirmed that there was talk of reforming the Beatles a couple of times after they split in 1970 but the plans "didn't jell" because "there was not enough passion behind the idea".
And now he admits he is glad the idea did not come to fruition.
"It could have spoiled the whole idea of the Beatles - so wrong that they'd (fans) be like, 'Oh, my God, they weren't any good'," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted McCartney as saying.
"The re-formation suggestions were never convincing enough.
"They were kind of nice when they happened: 'That would be good, yeah' - but then one of us would always not fancy it. And that was enough, because we were the ultimate democracy," he said.
But the individual members of band have often come together over the years to perform on each other's projects, most notably when songwriters McCartney and Lennon reunited briefly for the Toot and Snore studio jam session in 1974 that also featured Stevie Wonder and Harry Nilsson. (ANI)
