In 1956, a 15-year-old Liverpool schoolboy named John Lennon recruited five of his closest friends to join him in a skiffle and rock 'n' roll group called The Quarrymen.

On July 6th 1957, the group was performing at the annual garden party of the local village church St. Peter's. A friend of John Lennon attended the performance and brought with him another pal. He felt that his two friends should meet.  The friend he brought with him was a just-turned-15 lad named Paul McCartney.

John and Paul met. And made an immediate connection over their shared love of the new music coming from America - rock 'n' roll.  It was the Big Bang that eventually led to the Beatles.

"That was the day... the day that I met Paul that it started moving..."
-  John Lennon (1968)

"I had a group, I was the singer and the leader.  I met Paul and I made a decision whether to have him in the group: Was it better to have a guy who was better than the people I had in obviously?  Or not? To make the group stronger or let me be stronger? That decision was to let Paul in and make the group stronger."
-  John Lennon (1970)
