oh my gawD this scene I cried
“I remember coming into the fête and seeing all the sideshows. And also hearing all this great music wafting in from this little Tannoy system. It was John and the band.
I remember I was amazed and thought, ‘Oh great’, because I was obviously into the music. I remember John singing a song called ‘Come Go With Me’. He’d heard it on the radio. He didn’t really know the verses, but he knew the chorus. The rest he just made up himself.
I just thought, ‘Well, he looks good, he’s singing well and he seems like a great lead singer to me.’ Of course, he had his glasses off, so he really looked suave. I remember John was good. He was really the only outstanding member, all the rest kind of slipped away.”
- Paul McCartney
July 6, 2012, marks the 55th anniversary of the day John Lennon met Paul McCartney for the very first time at the Woolton Village Fete in St. Peter’s Church.
The rest was history.
