Paul McCartney Shares What He Believes John Lennon Would've Thought About Auto-Tune

Paul McCartney is talking about his late friend and The Beatles bandmate John Lennon.

While chatting with Mark Ronson on his new Apple TV+ docu-series Watch the Sound with Mark Ronson, the 79-year-old musician revealed what he thinks John would have thought about using auto-tune while creating music.

“I’d say that if John Lennon had had an opportunity he would have been all over it,” Paul said. “Not so much to fix your voice, but just to play with it.”

John‘s son Sean Lennon agreed with Paul, saying that John most definitely would have used auto-tune, if it was around when he was alive.

“It’s definitely true that my dad didn’t like his voice alone, like a single voice,” Sean explained. “Part of it is why he found all those phase effects, because he was always trying to find a way to make his voice sound better to him.”

Sean added, “He always was not just keeping up with the technology, but the Beatles and my dad, they were always on the cutting edge of what was happening. I think for sure he would have tried Auto-Tune.”

In another recent interview, Paul looked back on The Beatles breaking up, and the biggest misconception fans had about it.

The first episode of Watch the Sound with Mark Ronson is available for streaming on Apple TV+ now.
