Personal Quote:

[on Phil Spector's controversial overdubs to the "Let It Be" record] It was so uncharacteristic of The Beatles. It went against everything The Beatles wanted to do with the record. He tried to use the same techniques that he used on other people's records, and it didn't work. I could understand why Paul (Paul McCartney) got so mad over it. See more »
