    He was a pretty good guitarist, but I've heard that when the beatles met him, he was playing a precision. I heard he also played the bassline on "you're so square(baby I don't care)." :smug:

    Good enough to make a financially successful career as a musician.

    He was a much better guitar player than actor. He's got star quality though that lights up the screen despite always playing the same character its quite amazing.
