The Beatle continued: “So then the three of us would have been on, but then it wouldn’t have been the Beatles.
“It would have been Plastic Ono because I would have the final say. There would be no decision making by George or Ringo, other than if I liked an idea I’d take it — which is what happened with the Beatles — but then it was more diplomatic.”
“So yes, it’s quite possible about the Beatles working as a unit, because I might play on George’s or Ringo’s if they wanted my style of playing.”
Lennon went on to point out how The Beatles had grown creatively since their break-up.
