George Harrison, photographed by Tim Boxer, 1 May 1970

"Well, I got the impression it was like, [Paul] still acted as if he was the groovy Lennon/McCartney. Because there was a point in my life where I realized anybody can be Lennon/McCartney, you know. ‘Cos being part of Lennon/McCartney really I could see, you know, I could appreciate them - how good they actually are. And at the same time I could see the infatuation that the public had, or the praise that was put on them. And I could see everybody’s a Lennon/McCartney if that’s what you wanna be. But the point is nobody’s special. There’s not many special people around. And somebody else… If Lennon/McCartney are special, then Harrison and Starkey are special, too. That’s really - what I’m saying is that I can be Lennon/McCartney too, but I’d rather be Harrison, you know." - George Harrison in an interview with Howard Smith, New York City, 1 May 1970
