56 Years Ago: John Lennon Meets Paul McCartney

The first time John Lennon met Paul McCartney, Lennon was about ready to go onstage with his band the Quarrymen. One of the group members knew McCartney from school, so he introduced him to his bandmates. Lennon was 16; McCartney was 15. It was July 6, 1957, and the most significant meeting in rock history was about to go down.

45 Years Ago: The Beatles Begin Recording ‘The White Album’

In May of 1968 – nearly a year after the release of the triumphant ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ and a few months after the major movie blunder ‘Magical Mystery Tour’ – the Beatles began working on their next album.

45 Years Ago: John Lennon and Paul McCartney Appear on ‘The Tonight Show’

After their February 1968 trip to Rishikesh, India failed to provide the spiritual enlightenment they sought, the Beatles turned in the opposite direction, towards business matters.

43 Years Ago: The Beatles’ ‘Let It Be’ Album Released

‘Let It Be’ was supposed to be the album that would bring the Beatles back together.
