So let's dive right into it! Recently we talked to BuzzFeed’s Kayla Yandoli about the recent Beatles documentary — and how Yoko Ono did not, in fact, break up the band. Here's some of what we learned:
BuzzFeed Daily: So you recently wrote a piece for Buzzfeed about the Beatles, specifically the narrative that Yoko Ono was the reason the band broke up. But before we get into that, what is your relationship with the Beatles? Would you consider yourself a super fan of them?

Kayla Yandoli: I definitely am a fan. I'm not like a Beatlemania expert. I don't know the lyrics to every single song, but I did grow up listening to them. My cousins introduced me to their music. My cousin and my brother and I would listen to the Beatles 1 CD over and over again, and we started our own rock group in elementary school. Obviously, it didn't go anywhere but it was still fun and I've been lucky to see Paul McCartney in concert and Ringo Starr in concert. Their music always feels like home to me.I will say I do love the Beatles a lot, but I don't believe that they're the end all be all of music. I get a lot of hate for saying it. It's not me negating their impact on the musical world or pop culture or anything like that. But they had musical influences of their own and they wanted to be like Elvis and Chuck Berry and Carole King. So I think that's also important to note.
