McCartney Urges Ono to Mend Rift

LONDON (AP) _ Paul McCartney has urged Yoko Ono that ``there's still time'' to mend a rift between the two over the Beatles song ``Yesterday,'' according to a magazine interview.

McCartney revealed earlier this year that he and John Lennon's widow had argued over the writing credit to the song during the making of the Beatles ``Anthology'' album.

``Yesterday,'' like most of the Beatles songs, was officially credited to McCartney and John Lennon.

But McCartney maintains that none of the other Beatles had anything to do with the song. He said in May that he asked Ono to put his name first on the credit, but she refused.

``It actually is one of the reasons that we're not the greatest of friends,'' McCartney told Reader's Digest. ``But if you're reading this, Yoko, there's still time.''

On Oct. 20, McCartney will take part in ``The Concert for New York City'' at Madison Square Garden, also featuring Mick Jagger, Macy Gray, Eric Clapton and The Who, to aid victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the United States.
