Q: Your program was reviewed by a music critic…

Ringo Starr: Oh no! Not again!

Q: …and he said that you had ‘unresolved leading tones, a false modal frame ending up as a plain diatonic.’ What would you say to that?

John Lennon: He ought to see a doctor about that.

Paul McCartney: No, he’s just copying the fella in the London Times who did a review like that. The only difference is, I don’t know if that’s favourable or not. The London one was, you see.

Ringo: Why doesn’t he just say if it’s good or bad?

Q: What do you think of the reaction of Amer… What do you think of American girls in the first place, now that you’ve had your first contact with them?

Paul: Marvellous. They’re the same as British girls only they’ve got a different accent.

Q: Is it your ambition to continue what you’re doing, or what do you plan to do?

John: Yeah.

Paul: Well, as long as it lasts like this. As long as we keep enjoying it. Once we stop enjoying it, and people stop enjoying it, then er…

George Harrison: We’ll pack in.

Ringo: We’ll have to pack in if people don’t enjoy it.

George: That’s a British saying for ‘give up’.

Q: One of the big attractions is your haircut and your manner of dress. What prompted that? The haircuts, for instance.

Ringo: It just happened, you know.You just wake up one day and there you are.
