"The Beatles weren't that good"

This is hardly the first time that a sensationalist UK daily headline has masked a non-story (from The Sun).

Realising they sounded average at best, Macca wasn't surprised in 1962 when record label Decca refused to sign the band - who went on to become the biggest of all time.

In an interview with Xfm's IAN CAMFIELD, he said: "We obviously weren't that good. We were formulating it all.

"You wouldn't have thought we were that great. You'd have turned us down if you were a record company. And they did - Decca turned us down!"

. . .

And this quote from Paul truly speaks to his engaging humanity: Those are some of my happiest memories, being there among a group of people and having someone buy you a beer.
