Sir Paul McCartney, 78, who is best known for being one-fourth of the most influential band of all time, The Beatles, alongside John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, has opened up about how their break up was like a "divorce". However, the crooner has now said it wasn't all as "gloomy" as it may have appeared, after discovering a picture his late wife Linda McCartney took of himself and John, who died in 1980.
Yeah, that was a picture Linda had taken
It comes after Paul spoke to John Lennon's son, Sean Ono Lennon, in a new interview set to air tonight.
Sean brought up the "glimpses" of studio banter he has previously seen from the time The Beatles were breaking up.
He told Paul how from the footage he had seen, it looked as though they were enjoying themselves despite it nearing the end.
Paul explained that at the time, he was expecting director Peter Jackson to tell him they were looking "gloomy" in the footage, when in fact he told them they looked "jolly".

Sean asked him about a picture of him and John writing together.
He divulged: "Yeah, that was a picture Linda had taken. And it really gave me hope, that picture.
"Before the Peter Jackson thing, that was one little picture I held onto. In fact, we had an exhibition where Linda's pictures were blown up and I bought one of them."
Paul continued to go into detail about the memorable photograph as he said they both looked invested in something "interesting".
