‘HE WAS HANgINg OUTSIDE mY HOUSE WITH A DEmO TApE’
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.
