Paul McCartney Opens Up About His Favorite Moment In The Get Back Documentary

The Beatles’ “Get Back” documentary, directed by Peter Jackson, has taken the world by storm. With its generous runtime of nearly 480 minutes, fans were provided with an in-depth look into the legendary band’s creative process. Sir Paul McCartney recently opened up about his favorite part of the documentary.


A Comprehensive Look at The Beatles’ Creative Journey

One of the key aspects of “Get Back” is its detailed portrayal of the Fab Four’s rehearsals and songwriting sessions. These were captured during the preparation of the songs that eventually formed the “Let It Be” album.

A Contrast to the Original 1970 Documentary

However, the original “Let It Be” documentary, released in 1970, primarily focused on the friction within the band. It highlighted the tension, overshadowing the friendship and camaraderie that the Beatles shared.

Peter Jackson’s Fresh Perspective

In contrast, Peter Jackson’s extended version presents a broader view. It emphasizes not only the Beatles’ creativity but also showcases how they had their partners join them during the process. This inclusion went beyond Yoko Ono’s presence with John Lennon, highlighting an often-overlooked aspect of the band’s life.

Paul McCartney’s Personal Connection

Paul McCartney’s appreciation for “Get Back” stems from the documentary’s accurate representation of events during that period.

“That was really the most special thing about it for me personally. Because when you get those bad narratives, it’s every easy to feed into it, to buy into it yourself.”
