July 6th In 1957, John Lennon and Paul McCartney met for the first time at The Woolton Church Parish Fete where The Quarry Men were appearing. As The Quarry Men were setting up for their evening performance, McCartney eager to impress Lennon picked up a guitar and played ‘Twenty Flight Rock’ (Eddie Cochran) and ‘Be-Bop-A-Lula’ (Gene Vincent). Lennon was impressed, and even more so when McCartney showed Lennon and Eric Griffiths how to tune their guitars, something they'd been paying someone else to do for them.

If you're 14/15, then you missed Lennon by like 13/14 years or something.

EDIT: It;s also worth adding, because all the hippy wannabes will hate me for it...
Mark Chapman sure as hell didn't miss him.
Yea, I went there.

Why do people always feel the need to voice their opinion when it's obviously not wanted?

Okay, there's a fact about the beatles. Beatles fans will care. Move on.

1. I'm 16
2. I'm not criticising, 'miss' implies that he knew him, or knew/liked him while he was still alive, so since he's never met him, or was around at the same point, he can't miss him.

I know I probably ****ed up the point I was trying to make, but still...

EDIT: And how can you criticise me if YOUR only 15, July 21st boy?!?!

I'm 16. I think Lennon was great and I think his musical influence would have continued to make music better than it is today.

Because I can go into pretty much any music shop in the world, get a Beatles record, put it on and go

Heh, I've held onto a piece of the floorboards from the room that they met in. A Beatles collector came to our school one day for our history class... Had Lennon's report card from like grade 10, a guitar pick (the squared off one), a whole bunch of paintings and memorabelia, a scrapbook of stuff worth a combined like half million dollars, a signed card with the Beatles phone numbers and a couple of addresses etc...

It was pretty neat.

So. Get this, my nan was in the same school as Paul Mccartney.

People like to go on the slate-the-beatles bandwagon just for the fact that they are a highly regarded band, doing this without listening to any albums too.

Pretty much the same here. My parents blasted The Beatles, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton, The Eagles, Creedence Clearwater Revival and the like at me in my younger days, and the only one I really don't like now is The Beatles. I think having to listen to them on a very regular basis for 12 years gives me enough time to form an opinion.

if it wasnt for the beatles then we wouldnt have any kind of genre today. them, along with the rolling stones, and the rest of the bands of the 1960's revollutionized the music we hear today. elvis wazs the king of rock and roll. you know where all the metal bands got their influences from? the bands before them. and those bands? the bands before them. thats all there is to it. you dont have to like the beatles, but in my mind we should at least recognize the fact that if it wasnt for what they did, along with everyone else in the 50's/60's then we wouldnt have the music that makes us happy today.

im done =]

Uh no, that's not true at all. I've heard plenty of the beatles' material. It's not bad, but imo they don't deserve the hype they get.

If it wasnt for the beatles then we wouldnt have any kind of genre today.

That's not true at all. There were already plenty of famous rock musicians (Chuck Berry, Little Richard, etc) before The Beatles even formed. Would music today be exactly the same? Probably not, but it's all just speculation.
