In the mid-1950s, John Lennon, who liked songs of popular artists of that time Elvis Presley and Eddie Cochran, assembled musical amateur band called The Quarrymen ( The name given in honor of the school Quarry Bank, where members of the group studied).
In 1957, Paul McCartney joined The Quarrymen . In the spring of 1958 for occasional performances, and since the autumn Paul’s friend, George Harrison, permanently joined the band. These three young musicians formed the backbone of a future world-famous group. At the end of 1959, the group entered the amateur painter Stuart Sutcliffe, with whom Lennon met at art college.
