Paul McCartneyLondon, Sep 15 (IANS) Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney has dismissed claims that his late band mate John Lennon was gay.Biographer Philip Norman claims that Lennon had gay fantasies in the new book “John Lennon: The Life”. But McCartney in an interview clarified that Lennon never made any moves on him though they shared beds many times while touring, reports.

He said: “I don’t think (the gay claims) are true. John never ever tried anything, I slept with him a million times. I’ve seen him on tour roaring drunk, out of his mind in the early days before he sobered up and went to rehab. Roaring drunk and it was always with a female…. If you’ve got a little gay tendency and you’re roaring drunk I’d have caught him once.”

Lennon was married twice - first to Cynthia Lennon and then to Yoko Ono.
