“George was the friendliest of the Beatles. He always spoke close to your face - was interested in being a good listener. George was very affectionate. He did not have an ego in the normal range of a music superstar, and he was the most serious musician of the group. Ironically, because he was such an inward, creative person, he was most affected by the hysteria of Beatlemania. Occasionally, he let his disenchantment with celebrity show.” - Tony Barrow, quoted in Larry Kane’s Ticket To Ride [x]
