I have lived my whole life with the Beatles playing in the background. The Beatles are probably the most profound music group of all time, but where did they come from? How did they get started? I put together this chronological story to explore their humble beginnings, up through their stellar success.
This is the first image ever taken of Paul McCartney and John Lennon together. It was taken on November 23, 1957 in The New Clubmoor Hall on Broadway in Liverpool. Notice how Paul McCartney and John Lennon have Elvis lids, and are wearing Colonel Sanders suits ;-)
The Quarry Men band are pictured above. From left to right we see Colin Hanton on drums, Paul McCartney on guitar, Len Garry on tea chest bass, John Lennon on guitar, and Eric Griffiths on guitar. Photo taken by Leslie Kearney on November 23, 1957 in The New Clubmoor Hall on Broadway in Liverpool.
