McCartney Angry With Ono's Beatles Song Ban

Subscribe to Sir Paul McCartney alerts

Sir Paul McCartney is fuming over Yoko Ono's refusal to allow him to include his ballad YESTERDAY on a new solo album.

Ono, the widow of late Beatle John Lennon, insists the classic 60s song was a collaborative effort and has denied McCartney access to the track for upcoming disc PAUL McCARTNEY LOVE SONGS, even though he wrote it.

In order for any Beatles song to be released all four principals in the Apple group - McCartney, Ono, Ringo Starr and George Harrison's widow OLVIA - must agree on every detail.

But Ono's decision has reportedly infuriated McCartney, reigniting a similar feud over the song from four years ago.

A source says, "He can't believe she is being so petty. Even though she knows John did not have a hand in writing Yesterday she insisted that as a Beatles song it should not be included on a Paul McCartney solo album.

"The situation is becoming more and more petty. And what infuriates Paul the most is that he knows if John were still around there would not even be a problem."
