In reference to a big gig at the Odeon, the ‘Daily Mirror’ ran a story saying “the whistling banshee of the 2,000-strong audience was like a screaming power-dive from twelve o’clock high.” (The fist time that the Beatles had ever been compared to Kamikaze pilots!) The headline read: “Four Frenzied Little Lord Fauntleroys Who Are Making £5,000 Every Week.” Other stories running this week included Donald Zec’s at the same paper: “They are four cheeky-looking lads with stone-age hairstyles, Chelsea boots, three electric guitars, and one set of drums, who know their amps and ohms if not their Beethoven.” He went on to call Paul “a young David Tomlinson in search of a barber.” is not affiliated with or approved by The Beatles, Apple, MPL, EMI or Capitol Records.
