Not sure if this was posted.

“Pete was the closest friend John ever had, apart from the Beatles,” Bill Harry, the publisher of Mersey Beat, the Liverpool newspaper that played a large role in the group’s early days, told the Echo. “John respected Pete because he stood up to him and could be a bit like John – a bit sarcastic and moody. John went to Pete for advice on lots of things, and their friendship from schooldays continued right through the 1960s. And I know they did meet up in New York in the 1970s.”

RIP Pete. It's nice that he and john stayed friends even after john became so famous. Unfortunately it seems Yoko made sure john had as few connections that pre-dated her as possible.

Not that particular article; just the topic.  It's easy enough to merge them together though, which I'll do in a bit on my computer. Bad things usually happen when I do stuff like that on my iPad.  ;D

I bought Pete's book a few years ago. Like a lot of other books it made it upstairs to my book shelf where it was promptly forgotten. I think I did look at the pictures though.  roll:)

Pete's book is great. You should read it. He really knew Lennon.
