Paul McCartney: 'For The Record'



It was rumored on T.V. that Michael Jackson left McCartney his 50 per cent stake in ATV/ Sony publishing - which own a lot of the Beatles music catalogue. McCartney responded on his website Paulmccartney.com in a message entitled 'For The Record'. McCartney wrote, "Some time ago, the media came up with the idea that Michael Jackson was going to leave his share in the Beatles songs to me in his will which was completely made up and something I didn’t believe for a second.

"Now the report is that I am devastated to find that he didn’t leave the songs to me. This is completely untrue. I had not thought for one minute that the original report was true and therefore, the report that I’m devastated is also totally false, so don’t believe everything you read folks!

"In fact, though Michael and I drifted apart over the years, we never really fell out, and I have fond memories of our time together. At times like this, the press do tend to make things up, so occasionally, I feel the need to put the record straight."

  2. He should have left Paul his share of the catalog. It would have only been right.
