The Let It Be project has long been renown for spotlighting the Beatles’ split and the ultimate breakdown of John Lennon and Paul McCartney‘s partnership. In the early years of the band’s split, John Lennon admittedly went over the line when bashing McCartney — slamming him personally, along with his extended family, and the music he made in the years following the group’s breakup.
