I think it's so sad. He was always fun to listen to. He had some great memories. Did he write a book about his time with the Beatles?

He said he forgot most of what happened.

He's always said that. I think it's just a way of being able to avoid questions.

I know I've not been his biggest fan in the past, but looking after that lot for so long must have taken the patience of a Saint. There must have been times when he was tempted to walk out, and spill the beans. Fair play to him.

And Neil was a "looker" when he was young.....

For some reason, Neil always like to take that shirt off..........

Thanks for posting these. The third one, especially, is a keeper, and it's saddening to think that only two of the six people pictured there are still alive.

Should we try to identify the people in the back row of the picture? Second on the left is Don Short of the Daily Mirror and third on the left is Chris Hutchins of the NME

Thanks, Bill! I have a feeling you'd win this game.

That looks like Larry Kane, second from right.


Thank you for all these great Neil pics, aspinall_lover!
