"Bill is sort of ah, he's a cross between a Will Rogers and a Lenny Bruce leaning more towards Will Rogers and Mark Twain, than Bruce. Bill isn't a controversial person, he's very non-offensive, he tries not to offend anyone and his humor is very general but humorous and intelligent...he has the ability to nail things down, describe something so ah, someone will know exactly what it looks like when he walks into the room, that ability you know, and that's coupled with a humorous sense that should be recorded by someone [laughs]."

Harry impressed most of the group when he auditioned several of his songs for them: "So I sang seven, eight or nine songs, and Michael Nesmith said, 'Man, where the fuck did you come from? You just sat down there and blew our minds like that. We've been looking for songs, and you just sat down and played an album for us. Shit! Goddammit!' He threw something on the floor. And he went and got Micky Dolenz and he said to him, 'Would you listen to this man? Listen to that!' Micky gave a surprised laugh, and Davy Jones started laughing over one song, and it was like the three of them were just out of their tree. Only Peter Tork couldn't give a shit."
