The official Twitter account for Paul McCartney and The Beatles recently revealed the following quote. The quote is actually an old interview snippet from acclaimed Beatles co-founder Paul McCartney reflecting on when The Beatles were in Rishikesh, India, studying Transcendental Meditation at the ashram of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. George [Harrison] would celebrate his 25th birthday. Paul McCartney recently unloaded on this Michael Jackson ripoff. McCartney said that The Beatles, including Harrison, were rich, and weren’t dumb with their money going broke.
The quote’s overall message of the quote was while it was great to be famous and rich, it was questionable whether or not that was fulfilling on a spiritual level. Therefore, the band was mentally broke and exhausted. The official quote states:
“I think by 1968 we were all a bit exhausted, spiritually. (…) I think generally there was a feeling of: ‘Yeah, well, it’s great to be famous, it’s great to be rich – but what’s it all for?” – Paul.
