Scans - George Harrison and Ringo Starr, 1964

"Some of the fans – a couple of them – were shouting ‘Pete is best!’ and ‘Ringo never, Pete Best forever!’, but it was a small group and we ignored it. However, after about half an hour our it was getting a bit tiring so I shouted to the audience. When we stepped out of the band room into the dark tunnel, some guy nodded me one, giving me a black eye. The things we have to do for Ringo!" – George Harrison, The Beatles Anthology

"George fought for me." - Ringo Starr, The Beatles Anthology

"All my early life they’d tried to bring me up as a Catholic, but I wasn’t really into that. The whole ‘Christian’ attitude (and I say ‘Christian’ in inverted commas, because there are a lot of people who represent themselves as Christians who aren’t - who don’t really, to my mind, have the franchise on Christ, and are not necessarily representative of what He was trying to say) seemed to be telling you to believe what they’re telling you and not to have the direct experience.
For me, going to India and reading somebody saying, ‘No, you can’t believe anything until you have direct perception of it’ - which was obvious, really - made me think, ‘Wow! Fantastic! At last I’ve found somebody who makes some sense.’ So I wanted to go deeper and deeper into that. That’s how it affected me - I read books by various holy men and swamis and mystics, and went around and looked for them and tried to meet some."

"Alun [Owen] wrote a scene about us being harassed by the press - which was a real part of our daily duty. They would ask things like, ‘How did you find America?’ and we’d say, ‘Turn left at Greenland.’
I think this was an important part of The Beatles - people associate humour with us. When all the new bands first came out, Gerry and the Pacemakers and others, nobody could tell who was who; one hit was the same as another, everybody got the same amount of coverage. So even if you had a hit you needed something else to carry you. The Beatles actually were very funny, and even when our humour was transported to New York or somewhere else, it was still great. We were just being hard-faced, really, but people loved it.
Everyone in Liverpool thinks they’re a comedian. Just drive through the Mersey a Tunnel and the guy on the toll booth will be a comedian. We’ve had that born and bred into us.
And in our case the humour was made even stronger by the fact there were four of us bouncing off one another. If one dried up, somebody else was already there with another fab quip.” - George Harrison, The Beatles Anthology

"I think because I loved films I was less embarrassed than the others to be in one; John really got into the movie, too. I felt a lot of the time that George didn’t want to be there. It was something he was doing because we were doing it." - Ringo Starr, The Beatles Anthology

"I don’t know what he’s talking about, I loved it! The only thing I didn’t like was having to get up at five in the morning.
It was a very early start. We’d have to arrive and get dressed and have our hair and faces done. While all this was going on they would set up with stand-ins. They wouldn’t call us until they were ready to rehearse us for a scene.
There was always so much happening that I never knew how many cameras there were. We didn’t take too much notice of every detail - we were in the middle, surrounded by everything.” - George Harrison, The Beatles Anthology

"There were some things that we made up as we went along (although I must say they don’t look very spontaneous) - for example, the press conference scene. We made up a lot of answers and Dick Lester said, ‘Keep that one, use that one.’ He was very good like that." - George Harrison, The Beatles Anthology

"On balance, I would say the person that was the most accurate of all The Beatles in terms of ‘give him a line and he will get the right elements in it without trying too hard’ was George. In ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ if you watch George he just gets his lines right. Paul is all over the place, and John, sometimes it’s wonderful and sometimes it’s thrown away too much. George was just so wonderfully accurate." - Richard Lester, Very Naughty Boys: The Amazing True Story Of HandMade Films

"I wrote for Mersey Beat. Some things went into In His Own Write, and I used to write a thing called ‘Beatcomber’, because I admired the column ‘Beachcomber’ in the Daily Express. That’s when I wrote with George, ‘A man came on a flaming pie…’ because even back then they were asking: ‘How did you get the name, “The Beatles”?"

"There was a big party afterwards. Nobody thought that Princess Margaret would agree to come, so no one invited her. I said, ‘We should, at least, ask her.’ Anyway, it turned out that she and Lord Snowdon had an engagement for dinner but they’d love to be asked to stop in for a drink first. We were all in the anteroom, having drinks before going in for food. George gave me a look and whispered, ‘When do we eat?’ I told him, ‘We can’t, until Princess Margaret leaves.’ Although the Princess and Lord Snowdon had this dinner engagement, they stayed longer and longer at The Beatles’ party, having drinks and chatting. Finally, George went across to Princess Margaret and said, ‘Ma’am. We’re starved, and Walter says that we can’t eat until you leave.’ With that, the Princess just burst out laughing, and said, ‘Come on, Tony. We’re in the way.’"
