It’s a story that’s been played out time and time again. A group of friends take a shot at the big time. They start a band and make it, spend a few years at the very top, at first navigating the limelight before all that pressure gets too much. Professional and personal relationships clash, and in the end, both collapse. Oasis, The Smiths, Simon and Garfunkel, the list goes on. Maybe the saddest amongst them, though, is The Beatles and the way John Lennon, especially, turned on his oldest friends.Luckily, just before Lennon was killed in 1980, the Liverpudlian boys managed to reconcile, but it was a close call. After the messy and drawn-out breakdown of the band, crumbling under the weight of drugs, personal arguments and musical disagreements from around 1968, the final dissolving of the group in 1969 felt like a relief.
