Paul McCartney reveals he often reforms The Beatles in his dreams and thinks about the late John Lennon and George Harrison ‘with a lot of sadness’

Sir Paul McCartney has said he often reforms The Beatles in his dreams as he admits sadness over the loss of bandmates John Lennon and George Harrison. 

Talking to BBC Radio Scotland, the 76-year-old said: ‘John and George are still a big part of my life, always will be.

‘It would have been great to get the Beatles back together again. People always say what if? But we can’t, so, sadly, that’s not going to happen.

‘I often think about them with a lot of sadness, because they should still be here. In John’s case, it was a terrible thing. In George’s, a terrible illness.

‘If by some strange fluke it was to happen, it would be beautiful.’ 

He continued: ‘As a musician, you often have dreams about being in the studio or on stage, so I’m often with the guys.

‘Just the other morning, I woke up and I was with George. And that was very nice. I think of George as my little mate – he was the youngest in the group.

‘That’s how I run into John and George these days. So the Beatles have re-formed – in my head.’

Paul added: ‘Even though there is sadness, the main thing is the joy of knowing those two guys. I miss them a lot.’
