I really wanted to find out more about them [The Beatles]… there was something about them that I wanted to investigate. I said [to Brian Epstein], “The only way I can really check ‘em is to see them. Bring them down to the studio. Bring them to London and I’ll spend some time with them.” So they came down later, a couple of months later, and I spent an evening, afternoon, and evening with them in Abbey Roads Studios. I fell in love with them. I thought they were wonderful people… they had tremendous charisma. They had great sense of fun and you could tell they had star quality, you know, whether they were rock ‘n’ roll artists, or actors, or politicians, they would’ve made it. They just had that special something.
