John Lennon on Visiting Paul McCartney in New Orleans (1975)

"I was supposed to be going down to join Paul in New Orleans, but my personal life sort of interfered with that. I was just too busy being happy. I reconciled with Yoko . . . we're happier than ever before. It's like the old, old story, when you get someone back that you've lost, it is better than ever. We were so wrapped up in each other that I just never made it to New Orleans, sorry Paul."

Paul McCartney on Britain, Family, and Taxes (1977)

"We'll never leave England, despite tax problems. We plan to stay here and so does the Wings pop group. There's no point in living somewhere just for convenience sake, so far as money is concerned. I like it here, so does Linda and so do the children. It's the best place to bring up the kids. I've even taught the missus how to make a cuppa. I am also pleased that our new baby will be a British citizen. I don't mind which it is, but we're expecting another girl. We're used to girls."

Frank Sinatra, Jr. on the Beatles (1977)

"The Beatles have ruined the world! The Beatles are to blame for almost everything that's wrong with the young generation. You name it and it's their fault. I rue the day that the Beatles were, unfortunately, born into this world. They are, in my mind, responsible for most of the degeneration that has happened, not only musically but also in the sense of youth orientation and politically, too. They are the people who made it first publicly acceptable to spit in the eye of authority."
