“[George] is probably the most conscientious autograph-signer of them all. He believes in fair play for the fans: if he hears of someone who has waited at the stage door for an autograph, he goes to enormous lengths to ensure they are rewarded.” - Melody Maker, 7 November 1964 [x]

“Out of all The Beatles, I’d say George was the best one for signing things. He would come in and he’d go, ‘Do you want me to sign anything?’ or ‘What have you got in your cupboard?’” - Freda Kelly, Good Ol’ Freda [x]
