John Lennon Meets Paul McCartney
On July 6, 1957, "The Quarry Men" played at an annual garden festival at St. Peter's Parish Church in Woolton, not far from John Lennon's home on Menlove Avenue. During their concert, one of the audience members was a young man named Paul McCartney, who was there with a mutual friend of John's, Ivan Vaughan. While "The Quarry Men" were setting up for another concert at the church that evening, Paul was introduced to the members of the band by Ivan. While with the band, Paul picked up a guitar and began to play one of Lennon's favorites, "Twenty Flight Rock." This impressed Lennon, but what impressed him even more was that Paul knew all the lyrics to the song, and wrote them down for John, as Lennon was bad at remembering lyrics. A few weeks past since this night when Pete Shotten went to Paul and asked him if he would like to join the group, and Paul agreed. Although Pete asked Paul to join on behalf of Lennon, John had mixed emotions in asking Paul, as he knew Paul was just as talented as he was, and wondered if maybe Paul was competition.
