Beatles Tour Manager Defends Criticism Of Ono

The BEATLES' former tour manager has defended his decision to speak out about JOHN LENNON's wife YOKO ONO - insisting fans need to know the truth about her role in the band's history.
Tony Bramwell recently penned his memoirs, titled Magical Mystery Tours, about his life with the Fab Four - and the book featured some harsh criticisms of Ono, who married the late Lennon in 1969.
Bramwell accused Ono of contributing to the disintegration of the legendary band and even suggested her interest in Lennon was based on his vast fortune.
But the writer insists he did not aim to upset Ono - he just wanted to tell another side to the story.
He says, "I have no axe to grind against Yoko. I wanted to let Beatles fans know the real stories about what it was like when Yoko came into John's life and the problems she caused for the Beatles, their fans and the staff at Apple."
