Paul McCartney: “In our minds, it was the fat guy in the group who nearly always played the bass and he stood at the back. None of us wanted that.
Paul McCartney: “He wore his James Dean glasses, a nice pair of RayBans, and he looked groovy with his tight jeans and his big bass. Suddenly there was this transformation, and with his shades and haircut Stu became a complete dude.”
STUART SUTCLIFFE CHANGED LOTS OF IDEAS ABOUT LOTS OF THINGS AND THEN THINGS CHANGED A LOT.

My best friend Mary is jealous on my new friend Steven. When I introduced him to her, she didn´t talk to me more than a half hour, we three were just walking silently and I was thinking about this strange situation.
How could I explain her that´s her sense of betrayal is rubbish?
He was also struggling with what to do about Astrid. He said, ‘I haven’t seen her since the day we arrived. I’ve thought of going to see her but I would be so awkward—and probably the others would come as well and it would be even worse. I won’t write any more about it cause it’s not much fun.’ It was typical of him to appear to dismiss something so distressing with a phrase like ‘it’s not much fun’. He found it so hard to talk about, or show, his true feelings. Later he talked to me sometimes about Stuart and about the awful sense of loss and guilt he felt. He agonised over why he had lived and Stuart had died, and whether there was anything he could have done. But these glimpses of his real feelings were rare. Most of the time he kept it all deep inside himself. In that letter he also told me that he had lost his voice — perhaps a symptom of unexpressed grief. — Cynthia Lennon (“John”) (via beatlesneveroutofstyle)
When I say I’m a vegetarian and people argue with me saying “you need meat to live” and “it’s natural”
John was fascinated by Stu’s clothes. For Stu, in 1959, resembled neither Teddy Boy nor jazz cellar habitue. He had evolved his own style of skin-tight jeans, pink shirts with pinned collars and pointed boots with high, elasticized sides. His dress, in fact, was disapproved of by the Art College far more than John’s, but it was tolerated because of his brilliance as a student.—Philp Norman, Shout

Bob says: I actually think this was well thought out!
