When you think of The Beatles, I’m sure the first thought that doesn’t come to your mind is drugs. Am I close? Former Beatle Paul McCartney tells us otherwise.
In a new interview, McCartney says, “We were overdoing substances and really getting crazy, as we all were….falling asleep – the kinda thing when you can hardly get your head off the pillow. You go, ‘Woah, I’d better get my head off this pillow.’”
He said that their drug induced days inspired them to write “Let It Be.” McCartney explains, “I had a dream, where my mother, who had been dead, by then, ten years came to me in the dream and was very sort of helpful and very calming, and it was lovely just to see her…and she said, ‘Don’t worry about it…Let it be.’”
He adds, “I went, ‘Okay’, and I felt so good… and I woke up and wrote Let It Be. I thought, ‘That’s a good idea for a song.’”
