THE QUEEN (TO PAUL): How long have you been together now?
PAUL: Oh, for many years.
RINGO: Forty years.
THE QUEEN (TO RINGO): Are you the one who started it?
RINGO: No, I was the last to join. I'm the little fellow.
THE QUEEN (TO JOHN): Have you been working hard lately?
JOHN: No, we've been on a holiday.
PAUL: We've played so many palaces including Frisco's Cow Palace. But never this one before. It's a keen pad and I liked the staff. Thought they'd be dukes and things, but they were just fellas.
QUESTION: What about the Queen?
PAUL: She's lovely, great. She was very friendly. She was just like a mum to us.
QUESTION: Were you nervous?
JOHN: Not as much as some of the other people.
QUESTION: How did the other medal recipients act towards your award?
JOHN: One formally dressed middle-aged winner walked up to us after the ceremony and said, "I want your autographs for my daughter, but I don't know what she sees in you." So we gave him our autographs.
QUESTION: How did you know what to do during the ceremony?
JOHN: The big fellow drilled us. Everytime he got to Ringo he kept cracking up.
QUESTION: What will you do with your medals?
PAUL: What you normally do with medals. Put them in a box.
