Over John Lennon (17) en Paul McCartney (15): "John's house, on a busy dual-carriageway, was a semidetached suburban villa given the name Mendips by its previous occupants. Paul came here [...], turning up mostly on weekends. [...] After the first visit, Paul knew not to use the front door but to walk down the side and knock at the back, which led into the kitchen. The front was rarely used. Mimi would call upstairs: "John, your little friend is here."
Over Liverpudlians: "[...] In the Blitz week of May 1941 [...] Germany attempted to obliterate Liverpool, to wipe it off the map [...]. Liverpudlians, for whom tough times were a way of life, buried their dead, swept the rubble into piles and carried on. They couldn't be extinguished any more than their humor. One street-corner chip shop simply put up a sign - 'Owing to Hitler, our portions are littler'- and kept the home fryers burning."
