(Newser) – Yoko Ono says she's thankful Paul McCartney appears to have gotten over his grudge against her. McCartney, in a recent Rolling Stone interview, said he's getting along fine with the widow of John Lennon, his old songwriting partner. The bad feelings dated back to when Lennon's romance with Ono caught fire as the Beatles were falling apart. Ono, in an interview with the Associated Press, said it was good to hear those words. McCartney even called her a "badass," in a good way. She said of him: "He's a rocker."

'Thankful' for Paul's words. Probably not half as thankful as she is for John's words.

Good grief, get over it people. The Beatles ended because their audience had turned the group into a kind of quasi-religion, investing it with expectations that couldn't possibly be fulfilled. John had to leave to keep (recover?) his sanity. Maybe Yoko was the one who convinced him of that but if she did, then good for her.
