The Beatles were in a different stratosphere, a different planet to the rest of us. All I know is when I heard 'Love Me Do' on the radio, I remember walking down the street and knowing my life was going to be completely different now the Beatles were in it.
The Beatles saved the world from boredom.
The Beatles will exist without us.
The Beatles will go on and on.
Everyone's seen the Beatles.
I think when I was a kid, and I was in England and it was all about The Stones, The Who, The Kinks and The Beatles and that's what my dad was into.
If it weren't for the Beatles, I would not be a musician.
From one generation to the next, The Beatles will remain the most important rock band of all time.
The Beatles weren't like any other band. Everybody in the band sang, which is why you knew everybody in the band.
I grew up on a lot of early Beatles, DC5, Cream, Clapton, Page, Beck and Hendrix.
Probably my two biggest musical influences were the Everly Brothers and the Beatles, in chronological order. Both of them have had a very simple-sounding musical style that's actually quite complex as far as popular songs are concerned.
I suppose, counting back, if the Beatles had been influenced by music in the same length of time ago - you'd have to put that into better English for me, thank you - they would have been like a banjo orchestra. They would have been doing show tunes.
We always had a guitar at home, but it wasn't until I was 14 when I picked it up myself when my father handed me these sheets of music of the Beatles and some other classics. That's where I learned all the chords and learned how to play and sing at the same time.
I'll be honest. We copied everyone... the Beatles, the Bachelors. It was the only way people would even listen to you.
We were very influenced by The Beatles, no question.
