    JOHN: (excitedly) "Play Tiny Tim! That's what you gotta play! Tiny Tim! He's the greatest ever, man! You see if I aint right, Kenny Everett! He's the greatest fella on earth! Play Tiny Tim, gentle-readers."

    PAUL: "He's real."

    JOHN: "He's real, man. We saw him."

    "No group, be it Beatles, Dylan or Stones have ever improved on “Whole Lot of Shaking” for my money. Or maybe I’m like our parents: that’s my period and I dig it and I’ll never leave it." -- John Lennon

    "John [Lennon] wasn't competitive. He just thought everyone else was s-h-*-t." -- Ray Davies
