Alice Cooper Recalls Enjoying Conversations and Drinks with Lennon and McCartney After The Beatles’ Split, Affirming Their Continued Mutual Affection
Alice Cooper Posits that The Beatles Would Have “Absolutely” Reunited if John Lennon Hadn’t Been Assassinated in 1980.
As a part of Cooper’s renowned Hollywood Vampires drinking club, he spent time with both John Lennon and Paul McCartney after The Beatles disbanded, even though they socialized separately. Cooper attests that despite the band’s acrimonious breakup in 1970, Lennon and McCartney maintained their status as “best friends.”
When questioned by QFM96 about the possibility of a Beatles reunion had John Lennon survived, Cooper confidently asserts, “Absolutely.” He goes on to highlight the remarkable dynamic between Lennon and McCartney. Even during tumultuous periods such as their breakup, Cooper observes that their bond remained incredibly strong. He provides a glimpse into their camaraderie by recounting their interactions within the Hollywood Vampires drinking club. Cooper notes that in those days, if anyone within the group spoke negatively about Paul McCartney, John Lennon would swiftly defend his best friend by confronting the detractor. This unwavering loyalty illustrates the enduring friendship that persisted between the two iconic musicians.
Cooper further delves into the intricacies of Lennon and McCartney’s friendship. He notes that when it came to speaking about each other, there was a code of respect. If someone criticized John to Paul, the latter would exit the room without engaging in such discussions. Their bond remained unwavering, transcending any challenges they faced.
Despite their divergent paths after the split, Cooper believes that John Lennon aimed to engage more in political matters, while Paul McCartney was less inclined towards that realm.
In a recent revelation, McCartney unveiled his efforts to incorporate John Lennon’s voice from an old demo into a piece of music. The track, which has yet to be officially disclosed but is rumored to be the unreleased 1978 song “Now And Then,” has been completed with McCartney’s contributions. He confirmed its upcoming release within the current year, further underscoring the enduring connection between the two iconic musicians.
