Barmy Old Codger
Celebrating 60 years of The Beatles!
On the 6th of July, 1957, 16-year old John Lennon and 15-year old Paul McCartney met at St. Peter’s Church in Woolton, Liverpool (shown here). John’s band, The Quarrymen, were playing at the annual church fête. John’s friend Ivan Vaughan was a schoolmate of Paul’s and thought young McCartney would like to see young Lennon’s band, and maybe meet some girls! Well, whether they met any girls or not, the meeting marked the start of the legendary story of The Beatles.
Sixty years later, on the 6th of July, 2017, Barmy Old Codger sparked into existence. The purpose of Barmy Old Codger is to celebrate the 60th anniversaries of important dates in the history of The Beatles. Why 60 years? No real reason. It’s just that it’s a nice round number and was coming close when the idea to do this began to develop. That’s all!
