Q - What did you think of The Beatles when you first saw them? Did you think "this is the future of Rock 'n' Roll"?
A - Well, they were fairly un-disciplined in the very early days, which was nice. I enjoyed them. I'm a big fan.
I would stand at the side of the stage and watch every performance. I really loved them. It was interesting to see them kind of polish up their act during the run of the tour. They learned to be a bit more professional in terms of presentation without losing that raw stuff that they had, which was great and which everybody enjoyed.
We had a lot of fun together on the road. We would sing on the bus, everybody on the tour. We would all sing like Beach Boys songs and a lot of the early Tamla / Motown stuff, which they knew before any of us did because Brian Epstein used to import stuff from the States to his record shop in Liverpool. So, we used to do all that. We just got on really well.
