Paul McCartney announcement of quitting The Beatles

More Beatles trivia. This time from April 10, 1970:
27 year-old Paul McCartney issued a press statement, announcing that The Beatles had split, (one week before the release of his solo album). McCartney said, „I have no future plans to record or appear with The Beatles again, or to write any music with John”. John Lennon, who had kept his much-earlier decision to leave The Beatles quiet for the sake of the others, was furious. When a reporter called Lennon to comment upon McCartney’s resignation, Lennon said, „Paul hasn’t left. I sacked him.”
The date of the rooftop performance was January 30, 1969.
