Paul McCartney once gave his rapt attention and “thumbs-up” of approval to one of Jan’s performances! Ringo Starr, after hearing Jan sing, remarked to his band, “Hey, this guy’s good – we should get him up to sing with us sometime.” Original Beatles Drummer Pete Best once wrote to Jan, "I really enjoyed listening to your songs. I didn't know...that I was talking to such a talented guy." Sid Bernstein (who brought The Beatles to Carnegie Hall and Shea Stadium in NYC) raved, “You’re more than good…you’re incredible!” Len Garry of John Lennon’s first band, The QuarryMen recently told Jan, “Hey, you don’t need a band – you’re a band all by yourself!!” And QM Rod Davis added, “You were brilliant!” Allan Williams (The Beatles’ first agent) told Jan “You’re wonderful!”
Long-time friend & legendary Radio Personality Bruce “Cousin Brucie” Morrow once told a live NYC & national SIRIUS Radio audience (just prior to Jan’s performance): "You know folks, John Lennon was a friend of mine. If John were alive, and he was here with us tonight, I know he would join me in my praise of this remarkable fellow....Jan Britten Owen!"
