Washington, (ANI): Previously unseen interviews with an angry John Lennon have surfaced, offering insight into what may have caused the Beatles to split.

The singer made a few revelations about the break up when interviewed by Rolling Stone publisher Jann Wenner, who released the 1970 tapes for rock journalist Mikal Gilmore"s Why The Beatles Broke Up article. The tapes were also released to U.S. TV news show Entertainment Tonight, which recently aired the Beatle"s comments, reports Contactmusic.

Lennon told Wenner, "We sold out... and I felt sick", adding "We got fed up with being sidemen for Paul."

The musician also spoke about the band"s disrespect towards his wife Yoko Ono, saying, "They despised her... It seemed I had to be happily married to them or Yoko - and I chose Yoko." He added: "George insulted her right to her face and I didn't hit him, I don't know why. Ringo (Starr) was alright but the other two really gave it to us. I'll never forgive 'em."
