In an interview with David Frost which is due to be Aired next month Sir Paul McCartney tries to dispell the theory, commonly held amongst Beatles fans, that Yoko Ono was to blame for the breakup of the Fab-Four.

 

Avid Beatles fans have been blaming Yoko Ono for the break-up of the Beatles for over 40 years. In a surprise gesture, Paul McCartney has come to her defense, stating that she did not cause the break-up, during an interview with Sir David Frost that will air later this year on Al Jazeera English Television. 

 

"She certainly didn't break the group up," the 70-year-old rock-star will be seen telling Sir David Frost in an interview to be broadcast next month.

 

"I don't think you can blame her for anything," he says, claiming John Lennon was "definitely going to leave".

Manic Street Preachers have announced gigs in Australia so they can follow this summer's 2013 British and Irish Lions tour.

 

Their announcement follows news that 15 Wales players will be among the 37-man squad for the 10-match tour.

 

The "massive rugby fans" describe the prospect of watching the team take on Australia as an "once in a lifetime opportunity".

 

The band's song Australia was used in tourist board ad campaigns.

 

Bass player Nicky Wire told BBC Radio Wales: "The dangling carrot was that we'd never been to New Zealand. We could go to Australia, see the Lions and hop over to New Zealand.

 

"We've never been to New Zealand and we have a lot of Australian fans. It all came together in the most magical way."

 

The group called themselves "massive rugby fans" and the chance to play some gigs and watch the Lions play Australia was described as "an amazing once in a lifetime opportunity".

 

Wire added: "The Lions are a rare animal to see".

 

As for the show audiences, he said there would be a mix of "feather boas" and "middle-aged men in rugby tops".
