David Wigg : "The interview was held in the Apple offices in London. Paul sat in a handsomely carved chair that belonged to George Harrison. Paul talks of enjoying life as a family man. Paul also explains about the musical, business and personal differences within the band. He is very unhappy with the whole situation, largely because he never favoured Allen Klein to handle their financial affairs. After my interview, Paul joined the other three Beatles to discuss this very issue, and when it was put to the vote, Paul lost. He stormed out of the meeting and resigned from the Apple board .

David Wigg, a reporter for The Musical Express, interviewed The Beatles separately on various occasions between 1969 and 1973; when a second surge of Beatlemania hit the States in the late '70s, Wigg stitched the audio interviews together and called it an album.
