Paul McCartney has revealed John Lennon's greatest fear, and it could easily make your soul cry.
In a "60 Minutes Overtime" segment, in which correspondent Sharyn Alfonsi talks about her interview with the legendary Beatles bassist aired on Sunday, a revealing behind the scenes clip is played. 76-year-old Sir Paul, who spoke openly about his own insecurities throughout the interview, surprisingly announced that Lennon was also suffering from self-doubt.
"I remember John was a bit unsure," McCartney said before emotionally sharing an anecdote.
"And I remember him, especially weird and totally weird:" I'm worried how people are going to remember me. "
McCartney remembers trying to console him by saying," John, listen to me, look at me. You will be remembered as one of the greatest people. "I am suffocated. I said … "" Because you are, you are fantastic.
The story eerily points to Lennon's evil fate and is remembered as one of the greatest musicians of all time.
On December 8, 1980, Mark David Chapman shot the iconic Beatles singer and songwriter in front of the Dakota, Lennon's apartment building in Central Park West, New York. Chapman has been denied parole ten times since his assassination by Lennon and Beatles fans. To this day, he honors the musician on the occasion of his death year by gathering around his memorial in Central Park, leaving love and appreciation.
Although McCartney's confessional clip is sure to rattle everyone's heart, not everything he said on "60 Minutes" was tissue-friendly.
McCartney said Lennon commented on just one of the songs he wrote. "
" John says, when it's done, 'That's a really good song, boy. I love this song. "I said," Yes, he likes it. "You know, and I've remembered it to this day, it's really pathetic."
