In a new interview, Paul McCartney revealed something surprising about his last conversation with fellow Beatles' John Lennon before the latter died.

"I was baking bread and got quite good at it. So when I heard John was doing it, it was great. We could just talk about something so ordinary. It was really nice, and I was so glad that we got back to that relationship that we always had when we were kids," he told Sirius XM on Nov 9.

Yes, their final conversation was about their mutual love for bread making. This was also in line with the country-wide bread shortage which occurred during the 1970s, pushing many people to try baking it for themselves. Lennon left the Beatles in 1969. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman and died on Dec 8 1980.

Radio host Howard Stern continued the interview by asking McCartney whether it would have been easier to converse with Lennon without his "bully" personality that he sometimes embodied. The 79-year-old replied: "That's true, but I'd swap it all out for him to be alive. Sometimes you'd get annoyed back, but not often, you'd just go, "That John. What a d***'."

McCartney had previously spoken about his strained relationship with Lennon after the group disbanded. "After the breakup of the Beatles, there were some very sad moments for me in there. You would get really down and I'm sure I cried a few times," he added.
