McCartney reveals his and Lennons early bid to fameDecember 20th, 2008 - 12:13 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, December 20 (ANI): Former The Beatles stars Sir Paul McCartney and John Lennon once sent their personal ads to a local music magazine because they were very keen on seeing their names in print.
McCartney has revealed that the two of them and their guitarist bandmate George Harrison contacted a small publication in Liverpool, England, so as to get their written work published.
“There used to be this paper in Liverpool called Mersey Beat. And in it you had a column where you could put personal ads. And so John and George and I used to put them in. Just so we could see our words in print, you know? Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“It”d be like: ”Barry! Meet me behind the station at this time.” And then it would come out and we”d be like, ”Yeah! It got in!” Just seeing it there was a little kick,” he added. (ANI)
