John Lennon on the Beatles Playing in Hamburg, Germany

"We had to play all the tunes for hours and hours on end. That's why every song lasted twenty minutes and had twenty solos in it. The Germans like heavy rock, you know, so we had to really keep rocking all the time, and that's how we got stomping. It was all four in the bar, because the drummer, Pete Best, could only do four int he bar on his bass drum. So, everything we did was just boom, boom, boom, boom, like that."
