The real Apple Scruffs Returned

Here is something I found written on the walls outside Abbey Road Studios in London. And not to be outdone I HAD to sign something myself!


  1. this is so great! we had been looking for suejohn for years, and one day a few months ago i see a message from her on facebook. her daughter had made a fb page for her and she found me, because i am the only one who kept the same name. i immediately hooked her up with the rest of the scruffs and some of them had a meeting that day - we're so glad to have found her! i'm enjoying reading about your trip, so great to know you had such a lovely time!

  2. Seeing the "Apple Scruffs" names there made me smile.

    And Lizze....Richard Porter talks about you on his tour. He doesn't mention your name (although I did!) but outside Abbey Rd Studios, he tells the story about "Across the Universe."

  3. This is a quite wonderful thing to see.

    "We've been together now for forty years."

  4. Sara,
    I'm smiling all over for you tonight reading about your trip. I'm so happy for you that you and your mom had the time of your life,( sounded like it)
    I did the tour with Rich Porter in 1990. I can't believe it's been 20 years ago today ( sorry had to throw that in there) It really WAS 20 years ago thought!. Whew time fly's. Never made it to Liverpool sad to say. Maybe when I retire in 10 years.
    I'll be waiting for your other stories.

  5. that is so funny to see my writing on the wall posted here! Anon Apple Scruff

  6. Fame at last!!! My name on 'the wall' if not up in lights!!! Another Anon Apple Scruff

  7. Haha Anon didn't think that I, Sara, would spot your writing and photograph it. :) It actually really made me happy to see that the Scruffs wrote on the wall and it was still there when I visited. It made me feel like I was part of something special.
