It will take several days to relate what we saw on our tour here today with our cab driver, Jimmy, who now plays in The Quarrymen band with several of the original members. I spent a couple of minutes talking to Colin Hanton (who was playing drums behind Lennon in the old photos) and guitarist Rod Davis (who is standing behind John to his right on the stage. You can just see his head.).
We stood on the exact spot where John Lennon first met Paul McCartney at St. Peter’s Church. The field where John Lennon was playing guitar onstage with The Quarrymen is no longer there as a school has been built on it. Because this is Beatles weekend, there was a small festival in the church while we were visiting. This is one of the photos that was posted on the church bulletin board. All the photos were taken by The Quarrymen member Rod Davis’s dad.
