JOHN TO PAUL: 'GET OFF YOUR GOLD DISK'



  Everybody knew that John Lennon and Paul McCartney didn't get along, and now confirmation comes in the form of a a letter written by John and sent to Paul and wife Linda back in 1971, shortly after the formal break-up of the Beatles. .

 In the typewritten letter, which is expected to sell for around £40,000 in an online auction, John launched a bitter rant at the couple over six pages about the demise of the Beatles and their treatment of Yoko Ono.

 "I hope you realise what ... you and the rest of my kind and unselfish friends laid on Yoko & me since we have been together," he wrote, also predicting the McCartneys' marriage would be over within two years, adding: "Do you really believe that most of today's art came about because of the Beatles? I don't believe you're that insane Paul ... Didn't we always say we were part of the movement -- not all of it? Get off your gold disk and fly." 

   Despite the vitriol, he signed off: "Inspite of it all, love to you both, from us two."
