Paul McCartney Thankful for Repaired Friendship Before John Lennon's Death

Originally posted 12/07/2014 02:15PM

Paul McCartney says his bitter rift with Beatles bandmate John Lennon may have drawn headlines, but their real story at the end was one of forgiveness, as the two put aside differences to bond over fatherhood and "bread-making recipes."

On Saturday's episode of The Jonathan Ross Show, McCartney told the host that he's thankful the musical legends had reconnected before Lennon was tragically shot to death in 1980 at age 40.

"The story about the break-up, it's true but it's not the main bit, the main bit was the affection," the musician, 72, lovingly recalled days before the Monday anniversary of Lennon's murder outside the famed Dakota apartment building in Manhattan.

Ringo Starr Shares Never-Before-Seen Photos of The Beatles

Originally posted 05/29/2013 08:30AM

Little remains unknown about the Beatles – they're one of the world's greatest rock and roll bands and have likely been photographed more times than Bieber and Britney combined.

But now Ringo Starr is unveiling more than 100 never-before-seen images of the Fab Four that he took during their '60s prime.

In a new e-book, Photograph, the Beatles drummer reveals intimate pictures of the group, including black-and-white and color photos of Starr, now 72, Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison during their first U.S. tour, their fabled trip to India to meet the Maharishi, and their last days together as a band.

Capturing the Beatles' casual, off-duty moments never felt like work for Henry Grossman.

"We were friends," says the former photographer for both Life and PEOPLE, now 76. "I almost didn't know them as performers."

His new 500-page photo book, Places I Remember, features nearly 1,000 never-before-seen photos taken at the height of the band's fame, between 1964 and 1968. Why did it take him so long to share?

"I had pictures I didn't know had never been seen," says Grossman.

It was a rock and roll reception for Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell after their Sunday wedding, with a party afterward that included a special song the groom delivered for his bride.

"There was a lovely song that our kid did, and they had a lovely dance together," Paul's brother, Mike McCartney, told reporters. "That was a nice little highlight of the evening."

The sibling – who served as Paul's best man – spoke outside the house in St. John's Wood where the reception took place, with such guests who include fellow Beatle Ringo Starr, Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, the bride's second cousin Barbara Walters, and such fixtures from the '60s as model Twiggy and artist Peter Blake.
