Incredibly, The Beatles broke up on this day in 1970.
It started with Paul McCartney officially leaving the group but the guys had not played together for about a year.
2 months later, McCartney released a solo album. It was so "solo" that he played every instrument. The most popular song was "Maybe I'm amazed" although it was never released as a 45 in the US.
In retrospect, Paul would have been better off with some studio musicians but that's the way it was. Paul's next single was "Another Day" and it reached the top of the US charts.
His second LP "Ram" was a huge bestseller. It included "Uncle Albert", a big song for Paul.
The last Beatles' hit was "The long and winding road". It was their last hit as a group and over-produced by Phi Spector. The "naked" version, or the one not produced by Spector, was a much better song. Either way, the song ran a bit too long
On the day that Paul quit The Beatles, the #1 song in the US was 'Let it be".
