But it is much more than that: it's a spellbinding story of how fate brought together two men who would radically change the face of popular music, from its look and feel to its sound.

It was here that teenagers Paul McCartney and John Lennon met for the first time-and the event is mentioned by all Beatle biographers. See all Product description.

Published January 1, 1996 by Penguin (Non-Classics).

The Cavern Club at 10 Mathew Street, in Liverpool was the venue where the Beatles' (formerly known as the Quarrymen) UK popularity started. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Pete Best were first seen by Brian Epstein at the club. Epstein eventually became their manager, going on to secure them a record contract. Best was replaced by Ringo Starr on 16 August 1962, which upset many Beatles fans. After taunts of, "Pete forever, Ringo never!", one agitated fan headbutted Harrison in the club.

But it is much more than that: it's a spellbinding story of how fate brought together two men who would radically change the face of popular music, from its look and feel to its sound.

6 July 1957 was a pivotal day for the history of modern music: it was the day that John Lennon met Paul McCartney for the first time. In the afternoon the Quarrymen skiffle group played at the garden fete of St Peter's Church, Woolton, Liverpool. The performance took place on a stage in a field behind the church. The fete was a highlight of the year for the residents of the sleepy Liverpool district. The entertainment began at two . with the opening procession, which entailed one or two wonderfully festooned lorries crawling at a snail's pace through the village on their ceremonious way to the Church field. The first lorry carried the Rose Queen, seated on her throne, surrounded by her retinue, all dressed in pink and white satin, sporting long ribbons and hand-made roses in their hair.

It’s a fascinating subject: what happened on the day Mick met Keef, Becker met Fagen, Verlaine met Hell or, er, Chilton met Bell. Of course, the most seismic first encounter of them all is the one that took place between John and Paul of The Beatles. And so it was that, on 6 July 1957, probably the most significant single day in the history of rock’n’roll, the 16-year-old Lennon met the 15-year-old McCartney at Woolton Parish Church Garden Fete, Liverpool. Here, O’Donnell offers an – not the, because much of this is based on speculation,.

The fabled day that John Lennon met Paul McCartney at a church social in Liverpool 60 years ago - on July 6, 1957 - can appear less-than-fateful from a chronological distance of six decades. The Beatles of course evolved out of the Quarry Men, the skiffle group Lennon had formed with several chums, skiffle being the rootsy, largely acoustic, folk-driven precursor to British rock. Quite how many skiffle groups were active in the summer of 1957 was, it seems, everyone's guess," Lewisohn wrote. But when he began chatting with Lennon and discovered someone else who was interested in writing his own words and music, McCartney felt he had found a musical soul mate.
