McCartney has also been making nice with frenemy Yoko Ono, reports Forbes. Though Ono and McCartney have occasionally gotten along, their relationship has often been rocky. Ono is the widow of McCartney’s bandmate and writing partner John Lennon and has often been blamed for the breakup of the Beatles, though McCartney has refuted the blame.
McCartney and Ono have come together over the issue of fracking, the drilling practice of hydraulic fracturing. Both believe that the practice should not be allowed and have “come together” to campaign for the issue.
Ono recently attended an anti-fracking event in New York and has launched an “Imagine No Fracking” installation at ABC Carpet & Home in Manhattan’s Flatiron district.
Ono had only nice things to say about McCartney at the event, even though he wasn’t in attendance.
“Well yeah, of course,” they’re working together on fracking, Ono said in response to an interview question.
“I mean, he’s very intelligent. Look, we know each other from the 60s, so it’s like family, really,” she added.
McCartney has also been seeing a lot of his old Beatles bandmate Ringo Starr recently, reports TMZ. McCartney and Starr were spotted dining together two days in a row earlier this week. They ate together alone at Cecconi’s in Beverly Hills one night and were joined by guitarist Joe Walsh at Mr. Chow’s the next night.
TMZ speculates that “these recent meals” may be “a sign of an on-stage reunion in the future.”
