"I talked to Yoko the day after [John] was killed and the first thing she said to me was, ‘John was really fond of you.’ The last telephone conversation I had with him we were still the best of mates. He was always a very warm guy, John. His bluff was all on the surface. He used to take his glasses down - those granny glasses - and say, ‘It’s only me.’ They were like a wall, you know? A shield. Those are the moments I treasure."
-Paul McCartney [x]
