Quotes by others...
[Rory Storm and the Hurricans] would do their show and Ringo was the cocky one at the back, and with the way he looked, with
that grey streak in his hair and half a grey eyebrow and a big nose, he looked a real tough guy. But it probably only took
half an hour to realize it was actually... Ringo!" – George Harrison
Quotes by Ringo...
"When we first started, we were the nice clean moptops and every mother's son
and everyone loved us. And then suddenly there's a few things that they don't understand and that they don't get, and so it
turns them off us a bit. But I still think we're very popular. It's just that we're men now, we're a bit older than those
lads that started out, and we've got a lot of things to do. You've got to do a few of them, it doesn't matter what people
say. You can't live your life by what they want. We can't go on forever as four clean little moptops playing 'She Loves You.'"
