Sir Paul recalled:

“It was at the Delmonico Hotel on Park Avenue and 59th in New York City in August 1964.

“We were in a hotel room, all being good lads having our Scotch and Coke – it was an after-party, I think.

“Dylan arrived and he went into the bedroom with his roadie.

“Ringo went along to see what was up.

“So, he finds Dylan rolling up and he has a toke.

“He came back in and we said, ‘What was it like?’

“Ringo says, ‘The ceiling is kind of moving down…’

“We all ran into the backroom going, ‘Give us a bit, give us a bit!’

“So that was the very first evening we ever got stoned.”
