Lennon, McCartney meet

paul meets johnMcCartney sees Lennon perform with the Quarrymen in the garden of St. Peter’s church in Woolton, Liverpool. The band plays standards like Railroad Bill, Cumberland Gap and Maggie Mae, and Be Bop A Lula.

After the show, in the church hall, they are introduced by Vaughn, a former schoolmate of Paul’s, who occasionally played tea-chest bass in the band. Paul helps John tune his guitar and plays a few songs for him. McCartney:

I remember him in a checked shirt with slightly curly hair. It was a beautiful summer day and I walked in there and saw John on stage and he was singing Come Go With Me by the Del Vikings. But he didn’t know the words – so he made them up.
