Firstly you were in a Beatle film. How cool is that?!!!!

 

Secondly i dont want to hound you with questions (no one likes getting that thrown at them) so i will ask one.

 

Do you have any influence in getting Let It Be released on dvd? Anything you have on any of the 4 that will cause a rethink? There must be some way to get the damn film out again before im dead.

 

And welcome to the site, its a honour having someone with your pedigree on the site (yes im being shallow). Hope you enjoy the place and hopefully you will add some of your insider knowledge to the discussions.

Thankyou for the welcomes. 

3M's. sorry I have no influence on any thing Beatles.

Joe. For me Shepperton was not grim but it was not a nice place to work after the comfort of Abbey Road. The Beatles were a good band to work for and I still have happy memories of all, they were nice people.

Dipsey. It's not strange, I have lived with the images for decades, in fact I can't get away from them. LOL

Shepperton? Not Twickenham?

kneeler said
Kevin Harrington was the Beatles equipment manager ie roadie even though the only live gig he did was on the roof, (better late than never)  He worked for the boy's on their last three albums and also took care of them when they were in the studio's working on apple artist's, such as Mary Hopkins, Jackie Lomax, Doris Troy and Billy Preston, in fact he was with them any time they were working, he certainly did make a lot of tea, and a lot of coffee also, instant by the way, he fed them as well. To say Kevin was Mal's assistant is wrong, when he started Mal never really touched the gear again, Mal took over the roll that Neil had before apple was started, so as Mal was never classed Neil's assistant I never classed myself as Mal's, hope this has cleared thing's up for you.

Can I ask a bit more about this? Sorry for firing questions at you - I hope you don't mind. It's rare to get a first-hand account from someone who worked for The Beatles.

 

Firstly, how did you end up working for Apple? Job interview or friend-of-a-friend? When did you join/leave, and did/do you retain contact with any of the Beatles?

Which Beatles albums did you work for, and what did your day-to-day job entail (if there was ever a typical day) apart from making lots of tea and coffee?

Was Allen Klein as demonic as his reputation suggests?

Have you ever thought about writing your memoirs? Ever other person who ever met The Beatles seems to have done so.

Hi Joe. Yeah twickenham, doh. I was a office boy at N.E.M.S. from 1966 and was Brian Epstein's personal office boy. When Apple was formed I ask Peter Brown if I could move from N.E.M.S to Apple so I was one of the first to move into Wigmore st, Mal informed me one day that the boys were going into the studio that night and could I take a load of food ie; salad stuff, in for him after work. this I did and he invited me in to the studio, scary, the next night I took more food to the studio, without being asked and the following day at apple Mal ask me if I would like to come and work for the band setting up their gear and generally looking after them. Who in their right mind would say no ?  This was the start of the White Album and I worked on the next two. A typical day in the studio would start at 6pm setting up, make tea on their arrival stay in studio till I knew they had every thing they needed and were comfortable, then it's wait and be ready for anything that's wanted. guitar, sandwich, curry, joint, whatever, believe me it can be boring but then thing's happen which make it fun.

I was lucky I had nothing to do with Klein. I worked for the Beatles not Apple at that time so no dealing's no feeling's about him.

Their has been so much written about the Beatles that I could not add anything new to their story, I have thought about it but I don't think a publisher would be that interested in my tale. Hope the answers are any use. 

The following people thank kneeler for this post:
