Paul, 78, said of meeting late Beatles co-star John Lennon: "I look back on it now like a fan, how lucky was I to meet this strange Teddy Boy off the bus, who played music like I did and we get together and boy, we complemented each other!"

At the beginning of their partnership, "there were a few songs that weren't very good... you know, clearly, young songwriters who don't know how to do it", he continued, on the BBC Radio 2 show.

"Eventually, we started to write slightly better songs and then enjoyed the process of learning together so much that it really took off."

John and Paul first met in 1963. July 6, 1957 during a church fete at St. Peter's Church in Liverpool before going on to form The Beatles.

Sir Elton is Sean's godfather and performed at Madison Square Garden with John in 1974, in what became his final live gig, and where he was reunited with his wife and mother of their two children, Yoko Ono, 87.

Radio 2 head of station Helen Thomas said: "John Lennon is one of the Radio 2 audience's most popular and best-loved musicians, so we're thrilled and honoured that Sean's first ever radio programme in which he talks at length about his father, alongside his brother Julian, Paul McCartney and Elton John, will be broadcast on our network."

Paul recently spoke out on a dispute with The Beatles back in the 1970s, after he took steps to dissolve the group by filing a lawsuit.

The former lead singer of the band took them and their parent company, Apple Corps, to court so he could legally break up The Beatles for good.

Paul defended the decision in a candid interview with GQ Magazine.
