I'm 18 and I love The Beatles, The Smiths, and other classic bands. Paul is my favourite (but Ringo would definitely be my best friend). If you wanna know more or chat about the Fab Four, inbox me :)

George Harrison with Kathleen Martin at Kenloch
Fifty years ago, a skinny, mop-hair lad sporting a funny accent made a surprise visit to an Olinda restaurant.
Kathleen Martin was toiling away in her kitchen, preparing the lunch menu for the day, when she was interrupted by her German housekeeper, Sylvia.
"Ms Martin, a Beatle, a Beatle," she yelled in her thick German accent.
Focused on the task at hand, Katherine instructed Sylvia that if she needed to kill a bug there was Mortein in the cupboard.
"No, no, no, you misunderstand. It’s a Beatle, Beatle," Sylvia replied.
Kathleen broke away from her cooking to follow Sylvia out of the kitchen and into the restaurant. There standing in front of her was George Harrison, long and thin and seeking “a little bit of loonch”.
Eve Martin-Grey, the daughter of Kathleen, who became the most popular girl at Genazzano after George’s visit to Kenloch restaurant, retold this tale to 3AW Breakfast on Friday.
"He didn’t want anything off the menu, he just wanted steak and chips," Eve told Ross and John.
Eve said the Baby Beatle was intrigued by the historical property and wandered the gardens with his entourage, filming with his camera as he went.
Apparently George had left the other three while they were getting their hair cut, fancying a drive to the hills instead.
Eva told 3AW Breakfast she still keeps some momentos from that momentous day: the guest book he signed and the glass from which he drank his milk. [x]

Hey Jude | The Beatles

"I thought, as a friend of the family, I would motor out to Weybridge and tell them that everything was all right: to try and cheer them up, basically, and see how they were. I had about an hour’s drive. I would always turn the radio off and try and make up songs, just in case… I started singing: ‘Hey Jules - don’t make it bad, take a sad song, and make it better…’ It was optimistic, a hopeful message for Julian: ‘Come on, man, your parents got divorced. I know you’re not happy, but you’ll be OK.’

"I was saying, ‘These words won’t be on the finished version,’… [but] John was saying, ‘It’s great!’ I’m saying, ‘It’s crazy, it doesn’t make any sense at all.’ He’s saying, ‘Sure it does, it’s great.’ I’m always saying that, by the way. I’m always never sure if it’s good enough. That’s me, you know."

"In actual fact, Ringo was in the toilet. I started the song without drums, I thought he was in his drum booth. He heard me starting: ‘Hey Jude, don’t make it…’ Hey, he does up his fly, leaps back into the studio and he’s creeping past me. I’m doing this take realizing the drummer is trying to make his way back to the booth. He makes his way very quietly and just got there in time for his entry, so it was kind of a magic take.

-Paul McCartney

"Hey Jude is a damn good set of lyrics and I made no contribution to that."

"He said it was written about Julian, my child. He knew I was splitting with Cyn and leaving Julian. He was driving over to say hi to Julian. He’d been like an uncle to him. You know, Paul was always good with kids. And so he came up with Hey Jude.

But I always heard it as a song to me. If you think about it… Yoko’s just come into the picture. He’s saying, ‘Hey, Jude - hey, John.’ I know I’m sounding like one of those fans who reads things into it, but you can hear it as a song to me. The words ‘go out and get her’ - subconsciously he was saying, Go ahead, leave me. On a conscious level, he didn’t want me to go ahead. The angel in him was saying, ‘Bless you.’ The devil in him didn’t like it at all because he didn’t want to lose his partner.
