...the image, according to 1964 US Rock and roll standards, was mohair suit and tie, and nicey-nicey ol' boy next door. And all of a sudden here comes this truckload of English jackflies singing a Buddy Holly song! Damn!

Doesn't sight-read music, and actually panicked when asked to do a recording session for John Lennon
and expected Lennon to pass out horn charts. As it turned out, Lennon merely passed copies of his lyrics (with chords written in) around to the session players; he couldn't sight-read music either.
