"I still miss him."
”John Lennon and Paul McCartney pose on the streets of Liverpool before fame and moptop hairstyles take hold”
Paul can’t even handle it
Breakfast with John Lennon. By Klaus Voormann.
One very late night into the early morning hours after everyone else had gone, we were having breakfast when suddenly John fell face first into his plate, fast asleep while still holding his burning cigarette! Eventually when the cigarette burned down to his fingers, John awoke, sat up, and continued on as if nothing had happened! -klaus-voormann

She made John a birthday card and got up to sing “Happy Birthday” to him on the table, but became to shy when she stood up! SO CUTE! Does anyone have this video? I saw it years ago and haven’t been able to find it since! I just can’t take this! How can you not watch this gif set over and over!!
"Mrs Harrison, George’s mother, remembers the effect it had on John. They were still practicing a lot at George’s house, the only house where they got endless hospitality and encouragement.
"I remember when I’d given them all beans and toast one evening. It was several months before John’s mother died and he was just getting really close to her. I overheard him say to Paul, "I don’t know how you can sit there and act normal with your mother is dead. If anything like that happened to me, I’d go off me head."
"When John’s mother did die, he didn’t seem to go off his head, but he wouldn’t come out. I forced George to go round and see him, to make sure he still went off playing in their group and just didn’t sit and brood. They all went through, a lot together, even in those early days, and they always helped each other. George was terrified that I was going to die next. He’d watch me carefully all the time. I told him not to be so silly. I wasn’t going to die" -Louise Harrison (Hunter Davies, “The Beatles”)
