The star recently described The Beatles as 'punks' in the Martin Scorsese documentary George Harrison: Living In The Material World, a clip of which you can watch by scrolling clicking below.

He said:

We were punks really. We were just incredibly grateful to be on the vinyl really. The idea of getting a record and then we'd be on the radio, we'd stop the car and we'd drive on up to the gig.
