Totally absorbed in this, Let it Be was a film that almost every Beatles fan had nothing but disdain for. Jackson has dispelled the myth surrounding the Beatles final year with this doco and Yoko was not to blame. Paul was trying to hold the band together under impossible circumstances, Apple was going bust, management was zilch and a there was really no direction. The idea of a concert was a good idea, but both John and George were taking copious amounts of drugs including Heroin which saw their interest wane considerably. To John's credit he wasn't as bad as i was expecting, he was still his flippant and jovial self, George just wanted his songs given a little bit more attention. Paul had become condescening and this irked the other two, especially George who simply walked out and wanted nothing to do with playing live'. The compromise was the rooftop performance, they look happy doing that. Ringo, was well Ringo. It was ultimately the Allen Klein involvement that killed the Beatles.
