Paul McCartney's first meeting with John Lennon before the Beatles was 'unremarkable,' pals claim

Friday, May 04, 2018

The world of music would forever change on July 6, 1957, when John Lennon first met Paul McCartney.

Lennon at the time was a 16-year-old up-and-coming musician who dreamed of becoming the next Elvis Presley. He was hoping to make that goal a reality by being the front man of a rock ‘n’ roll group he formed in Liverpool named The Quarry Men (also written as “The Quarrymen”).

A 15-year-old McCartney had shown up at one of the band’s performances to see them play at a Liverpool church hall.

“[It] was a rather unremarkable event,” Tony Bramwell, a friend of the band told Woman’s World Thursday. “You really didn’t say, ‘Wow! I was there!’ The Quarry Men were playing and not very well, and it was the day Paul said, ‘Hello.’ It actually wasn’t exciting at all.”

But Julia Baird, Lennon’s half-sister, quickly noticed a connection between the two aspiring artists.
