PAUL MCCARTNEY shocked fans of The Beatles in 1988 when he didn't attend the band's official induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Although the star later revealed why he didn't attend, at the time George Harrison told fans he still "loved" McCartney.
The Beatles were finally inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. At that point, the band had split up 18 years prior in 1970, following the release of their 12th and final album Let It Be. Eight years earlier, On December 8, 1980, John Lennon was tragically murdered in New York City outside his home. The band's position in the Hall of Fame was long overdue - but there was a problem. Paul McCartney refused to attend the event which was hosted by Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger.
