      Hi there, 

      Does anyone know of any direct quotes on Del that any of the Beatles said please? 

      I heard that Lennon once said something about wishing he wrote a song like Del?

      Anything would be highly appreciated.

      Thanks

          Thanks! That article also identified a location for an Apr. 18, 1963 photo I recently posted, but didn't know the venue!

            Hello, yes thank you, but it isn't what I meant, perhaps I explained it badly.

            I have googled for hours searching for somthing that might not exist in that of a direct quote from any one of the beatles about Del Shannon specifically. 

            It might be a wild goose chase, but this came about from a freind who said that one of the beatles (he thinks it was Lennon)  has been recorded somewhere, written or otherwise as saying something like 'I wish I could write like Del'.

            Again, this seems unlikely, but I wanted to check just in case.

            Thanks in advance.
