Walter Shenson on John Lennon

"John, I felt at the very beginning, was a real genius. I never met anybody that young, at twenty-three, who was a musician, a composer, a songwriter, an artist, an actor, and a poet all rolled into one."

"John was my favourite - he also kept one on one's toes. You did not want to say stupid things around John because he would catch you at it and think less of you. And in those days he was outspoken enough to tell you you were a fool if you were acting like one. "

(quotes by Walter Shenson, producer of "A Hard Day's Night" and "Help!")
