I used to throw the papers on the fire - maybe I should've kept hold of them! They used to play all the rock n' roll hits in the 60s and we used to listen out for the early Beatles recordings. He used to wonder how successful the band could become and I remember him saying that if it didn't work out he was going to join the merchant navy and go on to live in New York. As it happens, the latter part of that came true. After school and some time together in the army, our friendship gelled. Brian always wanted to be an actor and I, having such a passion for music, actually wanted to be a singer.
I remember Brian coming to me and asking if I'd go round the clubs taking bookings for The Beatles because he was very well spoken and didn't think it would suit if he was going round taking the bookings.

I in turn told him that I didn't think it was possible because the river hadn't been dredged. I did, however, contact the Cunard offices who were more than happy to fulfil John's wishes. In fact, John had also asked for Clive and I to fly over to New York to meet with his entourage and join him for the return journey. Sadly John never got the chance to carry out his journey home.
