On this day, April 10, 1970,
27 year-old Paul McCartney issued a press statement, announcing that
The Beatles had split.
McCartney said "I have no future plans to record or appear with The Beatles again, or to write any music with John".
John Lennon, who had kept his much-earlier decision to leave The Beatles quiet for the sake of the others, was furious. Lennon said, "Paul hasn't left. I sacked him."
