“What are the Beatles really like? This is the question everybody asks me (as well as asking me to get their autographs!). It’s also the most difficult question to answer. I suppose, basically the boys are more or less like their public images; Ringo the quiet one; Paul the tactful one - the diplomat; John the witty one (often the slightly sarcastic one too!); and George the handsome, funny one.” - DJ Chris Denning, “A D.J’s View of The Beatles,” The Beatles Book, August 1965 [x]

“Hello. I’d like to send a request to somebody who I used to go to school with too, and he used to play bass in the group: Paul McCartney.
(Laughter)
And if yer listening, Paul, at work, it was great going to school with you and we had a nice time, and I’d like to play a nice one called ‘Love Me Do.’” - George Harrison in an interview with Chris Denning during the Another Beatles Christmas Show run, Radio Luxembourg, 1964 [x]
