'The Fifties and Sixties were a time when us working-class folk all had nothing and little to no chance of getting anything. We were all equal in our nothingness but at least we could dream of escaping our poverty, of winning the pools, or being bigger than Elvis! I trust that some of these images capture that feeling.' – Mike McCartney
'Paul would get lost in that guitar. I saw him in the garden, framed through Mum's net curtains, and wanted to capture it.' - Mike McCartney
'Paul said this was one of the most important photographs I had ever taken because it showed him and John exactly as they were together. They used to form ideas, write them out and then play them with the band. It shows the camaraderie, the togetherness and the professionalism of what they did.' - Mike McCartney
'It's great to see John in his glasses. In the early days he never let photographers take pictures of him with his glasses on, unless you were "family".' - Mike McCartney
