PAUL MCCART­NEY ‘I have fond mem­o­ries of David in the Six­ties, when I used to live in lon­don, and still live ac­tu­ally. I was bach­e­lor­free then. and it was a bit like a sa­lon in my house; any­one could drop in, just to hang out. any­way, there was this young boy ly­ing about, hang­ing around out­side, and I said, “come on in then.” I in­vited ev­ery­one in. and it was a guy in a floppy cap, with curly hair. I said, “Who are you?” and he said, “David Jones, Davy Jones.” and he had a demo for me. He played me the demo, and I thought, that’s re­ally good. I must ad­mit I thought his voice was a lit­tle like an­thony new­ley, with the same kind of sim­i­lar­i­ties, you know. But I thought he was great – a very per­son­able, cool guy.
