Stuart Sutcliffe: June 23, 1940 - April 10, 1962
“Not long before he died, he showed up in Liverpool and he went around and hung out with us - almost as if he’d had a premonition that he wasn’t going to see us again. He came to visit me at my house quite apart from when I saw him with the others and it was a very good feeling I got from him.

I didn’t know Stuart was ill, but he was trying to give up smoking. He’d cut his cigarettes up into little bits and every time he fancied a cigarette he’d smoke a little piece, like a dog-end. All the stories make out that somebody kicked him in the head and he died of a haemorrhage, and I do remember him getting beaten up after a gig once in Liverpool - just because he was in a band - but that was a couple of years before.
There was something really warm about his return, and in retrospect I believe he was finishing something.”
-George Harrison
