Lennon Sings Again
Singer John Lennon compares life in the Beatles to decadent ancient Rome in an interview to be broadcast in the UK for the first time.
"We got fed up of being sidemen to Paul after Brian Epstein (Beatles manager) died," he said. "Paul took over and supposedly led us. What's leading us when you wander round in circles?"
Lennon's use of heroin led to the treatment he and Ono received from "the Beatles and their pals". "We were in real pain," he said.
"I'd like to list what we did and what the Stones did two months later on every album," he said. "Mick imitates us."
