Tony Taylor is Emeritus Professor at the School of Psychology, Victoria University of Wellington. He was the first professor of clinical psychology in the British Commonwealth, and is the author of the memoir, Cockney Kid: the Making of an Unconventional Psychologist (Silver Owl Press).

Tony Taylor interviewed New Zealand fans of The Beatles in 1964 for a paper about Beatlemania, and interviewed John Lennon during the group’s tour of New Zealand, as he tells Kim Hill.
