In 1980 John Lennon told Playboy magazine that how he was perceived by his fans was often delusional: "I don’t think anybody should be that interested in every detail of my life from Beatles till now. But anyone, who claims to have some interest in me as an individual artist, or even as part of the Beatles, has absolutely misunderstood everything I ever said if they can’t see why I’m with Yoko. And if they can’t see that, they can’t see anything. I absolutely don’t need it. And let ‘em chase Wings, y’know, just forget about me. If that’s what you want, then go after Paul (McCartney) and Mick (Jagger); I ain’t here for that. Go play with ‘The Rolling Wings’ (laughs)."
