I am having a massively insanely busy day today here at work, but I wanted to quickly pay my respects...

Rest in peace, Neil... thanks for all you did to get the greatest music in the history of humankind heard and appreciated from the early days of Liverpool to more recent years.

Very, very sad news, and such a shock. He was a major part of the Beatles history, and he was a good and loyal friend to them from the very beginning. He will be very sadly missed. RIP Neil.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Good old Neil, been around
the Fabs since the early days. I remember him or George
talking about their smoking club on the playground at school,
and them getting into trouble together. Now, they're
together again.

Such sad news, and I only just found out he was sick over the weekend.

RIP, Neil. Thank you for all your hard work and dedication over the years. But most of all thank you for being such a good friend to John, Paul, George and Ringo through it all.

Thank you very much Neil for all you have done for the lads and for us fans. We appreciate everything you brought to the world. You weren't just a loyal and longtime friend to the Beatles, but you were also a beloved husband and father. No more pain for you. Enjoy the company you have missed in heaven. You too will be greatly missed. RIP Neil.

Neil,
Thank you for all you did for The Beatles. From the days of driving them to gigs and getting their equipment set up and taken down to heading Apple Records, you were there to look after them and stand up for them. You truly, shall be bestowed with the title of "The Fifth Beatle." God rest ye soul. May you find peace, love, and happiness, on the other side.
