Paul McCartney misses John Lennon

LIVERPOOL, England, May 26 (UPI) -- Former Beatle Paul McCartney says collaborating with other musicians will never live up to his time with fellow Briton John Lennon.

The 64-year-old singer told BBC 6 Music he was "a little bit spoiled" by working with Lennon at the start of his career.

"I'm a little bit wary of collaborating with other people because it doesn't happen as easily or as amazingly as it did with John," he said.

McCartney and Lennon started their partnership when they were teenagers in Liverpool, England, and went on to be considered one of the most successful songwriting partnerships ever.

McCartney has since worked with numerous other artists, including Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, but he said none of them lived up to Lennon's legacy.

"It's a funny subject, the collaboration thing, because I collaborated with John and you're a little bit spoiled after that," he said. "That was one hell of a collaboration."
