In Rolling Stone‘s upcoming cover story,Paul McCartney says that despite years of bitter conflict with Yoko Ono, they now enjoy a more friendly relationship.

“I thought, ‘If John loved her, there’s got to be something,” he said of Ono, whom he also called a “badass.” “He’s not stupid. It’s like, what are you going to do? Are you going to hold a grudge you never really had?”

Macca started mending fences with her years ago, and unsurprisingly, he did this on the advice of another former Beatle. “George [Harrison] would say to me, ‘You don’t want stuff like that hanging around in your life.'”

He says that he’s also in touch, in a way, with another former bandmate: John Lennon himself. Paul consults his one-time songwriting partner when he’s working on new music: “If I’m at a point where I go, ‘I’m not sure about this,’ I’ll throw it across the room to John. He’ll say, ‘You can’t go there, man.’ And I’ll say, ‘You’re quite right.
