"Broadcaster Art Schreiber speaks fondly of John’s phone calls home, and he was touched by John’s need for family. Schreiber says, ‘Lennon seemed to have a very traditional love for Cynthia [his first wife] and would call her nightly to check in and talk, in baby talk, to his son Julian. It was exciting to watch. Here was a Beatle, the idol of millions, savoring a few minutes on the phone with his wife.’" - Ticket To Ride by Larry Kane
Esquire: What makes a good frontman?
Turner: “Certainly, in this day and age, a sense of humour. Because it’s pretty ridiculous. In 1969, there probably weren’t many laughs in rock’n’roll. But then they were probably funny people. They had a sense of humour, they just didn’t use it. Not to name-drop, but we bumped into Robert Plant last night and he’s hilarious. Just funny, straight away. [These days] I think if you start taking it too seriously, which I’m, like, sometimes definitely in danger of doing… then it gets ugly.”
