"I liked George doing ‘Three Cool Cats’; I loved that one. Or ‘The Sheik of Araby’. Because he used to do a little dance, and I liked him doing the little dance. He used to sort of like kick his feet along the stage." - Freda Kelly, Good Ol’ Freda
"George was motionless except when kicking out one foot or the other involuntarily - what he’d call his ‘Liverpool Leg’." - Mark Lewisohn, The Beatles: All These Years: Tune In
Interviewer: You and Linda have been married 28 years-
Paul: 28 years, man!
Interviewer: In a business and a world where divorce is everywhere-
Paul: Unfortunately, yeah.
Interviewer: What's the secret? You're still writing love songs with her in mind!
Paul: Yeah, well I love her. That's the- I mean if anyone asks what the secret is, that's the secret. We just fell in love. We were lucky. We had our ups and down, you know, I don't want it to seem all rosey posey. I mean, we argue, you know, cause you gotta have that. But we've always had a good sense of humor, we've always been quite honest with each other, and we've been lucky.
