During a recent interview with Express.co.uk, close friend of The Beatles members, Barry Miles (also Paul McCartney’s official biographer) has revealed an interesting story about Paul McCartney and his fake moustache.

Here’s the story:

“John was always a prickly, difficult character and a lot of the so-called rapier wit was really just old-style rudeness really – because he’d had a really quite dysfunctional upbringing.

Liverpool was a tough city to grow up in back then, maybe still is. So he had a lot of defences and what’s seemed like an argumentative, distant relationship toward the end was still there.”

He continued and revealed the moustache story:

“There was one incident at the height of Beatlemania in 1965 when he actually drove right down through France to the south coast in disguise.

He had a false moustache and had his hair combed differently. In fact, he was turned away from a French club because he didn’t look cool enough!

And then he came back as a Beatle and they couldn’t do enough to usher him in and give him the best table.
