CMN Vibes: The Beatles!

It was 61 years ago today… that Paul and John met for the first time.

Truly, July 6, 1957 was a pivotal day in music history. 61 years ago, legend has it, John Lennon’s skiffle band, the Quarrymen, were playing a gig at a church in Liverpool when the band’s bass player introduced Lennon to a classmate of his named Paul McCartney.

As McCartney told Record Collector magazine in 1995:

“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.”

And if that isn’t reason enough to celebrate with a Beatles playlist this weekend, on July 7, 1940, a certain Richard Starkey was born in Liverpool. He would later be better known as Ringo Starr.

Resident CMN music junkies Anna-Maria RahkonenNicole Kitchens and Patrick Foster put together some of their favorite Beatles tunes that will take you to the toppermost of the poppermost!

Enjoy!
