After all we went through together I had and still have great love and respect for him. I am shocked and stunned. To rob life is ultimate robbery. This perpetual encroachment on other people’s space is taken to the limit with the use of a gun. It is an outrage that people can take other people’s lives when they obviously haven’t got their own lives in order.
[George] called me up. He would always ring up himself, he never had other people call. He said, ‘Phil [Spector] wants more acoustics.’ More?! There was already him, me, all of Badfinger and God knows who else on acoustics! But you understand, Phil has to have 94 of everything - twice. But we admired his production, we were all in awe of the legendary sound he got.
