You start giving them all of your attention because they’re what makes you forget everything bad that’s going on in your life. They’re the first person you want to talk to in the morning and the last one before you sleep just so you can start and end your day with a smile.

“A couple of nights later, I was in their room again and Brian Epstein comes in to tell them they had just gone to N°1 in America with I Wanna Hold Your Hand and they had been booked to go on the Ed Sullivan show in New York in a few days.
“They were all so happy, and I said, ‘How about a pillow fight?’ They all said, ‘Yes’, but then John said, ‘No’ because they didn’t want to look ridiculous, and they all agreed.
