Beatle Lou wrote:There is no denying how much John and Paul loved each other, even through the bitterness it is clear. George would always say that he was closest to John after the acid trip but to me that may have been one sided. Both men secretly followed the others solo career and sucesses. Paul was always more truthful about John whereas John would always double talk. During his last interview with PLAYBOY in 1980, John stated thst the last gasp from Macca was "The Long And Winding Road" A few questions afterward he went on to call Paul's latest single, "Coming Up" a "damn good piece of work". Prior to his death, Harry Nillson once stated that a girl told him that John was wearing an old Beatle button that said "I Love Paul" and the girl asked him why are you wearing that button??? "Because I love Paul" was John's reply. It's really as simple as that, even during the Mike Douglas show in 1972, John stated that Paul was "his best male friend" even though they haven't seen each other in awhile but they still spoke on the phone. The one major factor in keeping John and Paul apart was always Yoko Ono and her resentment towards the brother who John loved more than anyone else aside from her, she couldn't handle John's bond with Paul. She tried to break it and couldn't, heck she still tries 26 years after John's death. Bottom line behind hte insecurites and BS the guys loved each other.
Chris Speers wrote:The one move that Paul was guilty of that had a huge impact on John from what i read is the time he bought more of the Northern song stock behind John's back. When John found out about it, he really went off on Paul. I never understood why that mean so much to John but apparently this meant a lot since Yoko said many years later that John was hurt by Paul more than any other person in the world or something like that. I don't know Lennon went off on that since he had insecure things on his agenda by then anyway. But, John felt betrayed by this and later said "Paul tried to ruin my songs subsconsciously"....It's unreal how nasty things got between the two. While i think John is largely to blame, Paul always make it seem like he was an innocent victim and i don't think that was true.

and John was definitely controlled by her. Working singularly with either George or Ringo was not threatening to her....but Paul and the group intact would have been very threatening to her.
