GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

Decades of hostility have ended between former Beatle Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono, wife of the late John Lennon, the Sunday Times reported.

Ill feelings between Ono and McCartney reportedly contributed to the breakup of the band after she married Lennon in 1969. Lennon was killed in New York City on Dec. 8, 1980.

The newspaper said Ono visited McCartney's studio in England with her son Sean Lennon, and spent a weekend with the McCartney family. It did not say when the visit took place.

To mark the end of the rift, the newspaper said, the two families recorded a piece by Ono called "Hiroshima Sky Is Always Blue."

The newspaper said McCartney gave her the master tape to use as she wishes and that it was "understood" she agreed to give McCartney some of Lennon's unfinished songs.

The newspaper quoted Ono as saying: "It was a healing for our families to come together in this way. That feeling was very special."

It also quoted Sean Lennon as telling Rolling Stone magazine that the recording was not planned and "it was incredible working with Paul."
