"John rehearsing at the Cavern in his glasses. He’d walk to the art college, past our school, with his glasses off. I’d shout hello and he’d wave back to a lamppost or a postbox!" - Mike McCartney, Remember
“It was at the Liverpool Empire. I was looking at John on the stage, but all I could see was him as a little boy. I always used to take him to the Empire at Christmas for his annual treat. I remember the time we’d seen Puss in Boots. It had been snowing and John’s Wellingtons were still on in the theatre. When Puss came on in his big boots, John stood up and shouted, ‘Mimi, he’s got his Wellington boots on! So have I.’ His little voice was heard everywhere and everyone looked at him and smiled.”
"John met Tony and his fiancee, Marjorie, at their wedding in April 1960. I was a bridesmaid so I had to be there early and John agreed to come along later. As my entire family would be present, I prayed he would make an effort and turn up on time, looking reasonable. When he appeared my jaw dropped: he was the epitome of respectability, in a dark suit, white shirt and smart tie, with his hair sleeked neatly back. He had his glasses on, which made him look like an office clerk, but at least he could see the other guests. John seldom hid his dislike of social convention and I knew he had made an enormous effort for my sake.The whole thing went off beautifully. John was charming and polite to everyone, chatting to Charles and his girlfriend Katie, to Mum, Tony and Marjorie. In fact, it was the beginning of a friendship between John and Tony, who shared John’s dry sense of humor." -Cynthia Lennon (“John”)
