Rock ‘n’ roll history was altered forever on this day in 1957, well yesterday actually,  when a young skiffle group named The Quarry Men performed a short gig at the St. Peter’s Church garden fete in Woolton, England, as part of the annual Rose Queen parade and celebration.

After a lawn concert consisting of popular rock ‘n’ roll favorites like “Come Go With Me” and “Be-Bop-A-Lula”, guitarist and singer John Lennon met another young man named Paul McCartney, introduced to Lennon through a mutual friend, Ivan Vaughan.

And the rest is, as they say, history

Their story is fascinating to me. Who could have known what it would all lead to, for us, for them, forever.
