Looking back, we were like college kids. We had lots of great times. Sometimes I picture John and I wandering down the streets of Liverpool, dressed in black, in tight trousers – drain pipes, we used to call them – with our guitars slung over our shoulders and without a thought in the world that there was ever going to be this group called The Beatles or that it would be a phenomenon. We were just two kids with no money. One day we walked into a sweet shop, and John bought some chocolate. He said, ‘would you like half?’ I said, ‘Wow, you’re willing to share your chocolate with me?’ What a dude! (Laughs) The things that stay most in my memory are the smallest things, the ordinary things.

    People forget that Britain was under rationing until 1954. Sweets actually were rationed until late 1953, but British youth was accustomed to going without.
