Sir Paul McCartney has revealed that he often dreams about his late Beatles band member John Lennon and they are usually good.

The 77-year-old music legend spoke about Lennon coming in his dreams during an emotional interview on The Late Night Show With Stephen Colbert. The iconic singer shared, "I dream about him. When you've had a relationship like that for so long, such a deep relationship, I love when people revisit you in your dreams."

"I often have band dreams and they're crazy. I'm often with John ... I have a lot of dreams about John. They're always good," he shared. McCartney had earlier said in the interview that he had forgotten how well he and Lennon had got along despite the rumors suggesting otherwise.

He also got very emotional when Colbert pulled up a candid picture from 1968 of him and Lennon which was taken by his then wife Linda. McCartney recalled that the picture had been taken in Abbey Road and it was not too long before the popular band had broken up. 

"This would be the end of our relationship and, at the end, when the break-up happened, it was kind of sour - very difficult to deal with," he shared. McCartney also spoke about the rumors that claimed that he and Lennon were rivals and it was ugly.

He added that the picture of the two smiling and laughing together was a "blessing" for him and said the rumors were rubbish. Lennon was killed by Mark David Chapman who shot him four times while he was outside his Manhattan apartment in 1980. The murder had taken place around 6 hours after Lennon was seen signing an autograph for Chapman. 

Chapman was then sentenced to 20 years to life in the Wende Correctional Facility in New York.
