“George too has his moods though I cannot recall any particular row. I
don’t enjoy arguments, nor do the Beatles so we avoid anything too
contentious. George is remarkably easy to be with. He, like the others,
has expanded as a person and though collectively—on first sight—they
appear to behave alike, they have specific characteristics.
And George is the business Beatle. He is curious about money and wants to know how much is coming in and how and what best to do with it to make it work. He would like to invest. He is generous but shrewd. He enjoys spending but would always remain in credit. He likes cars, big and fast, but would be careful to secure a good trade-in price for his old one.
Strangers find him an easy conversationalist because he is a good listener and shows a genuine interest in the outside world. He wants to know and I find this an endearing trait in a young man who is so successful and so rich that if he never learned anything new he would not suffer any loss. And in addition to all these characteristics, he is, though not one of the prolific composers, very musicianly. “ - Brian Epstein on George - 1964
