Paul McCartney recalls being in school with George and John

The 78 year-old Beatle Paul McCartney recalled in an interview with GQ Magazine about being in school with George Harrison and John Lennon when they were kids.


Paul McCartney said about being in school with George Harrison and John Lennon:

“The memory of the school. I always think, is very important, because I say to people, “Half The Beatles went there!” Me and George went to that school and John went to the art school next door, which is now part of Lipa, so three quarters of The Beatles, in one way or another, are connected to Lipa.”

“That always hits me. Whenever I do a speech at the graduation, I always remember my mum and dad coming to events at the school when we were kids, like speech day, and your mum and dad would be there all proud of you and stuff, so when I’m standing there, talking to all the parents and all the kids, I get quite emotional.”

“I’ve got a million memories in that place and most of them are great, most of them are lovely. I was very lucky, i had a great family. I don’t remember anyone ever getting divorced or anyone being weird. There were a few drunks, but outside of that, it seems to be a very loving family. So I have a lot of very affectionate memories of that time and of those people.”


In 1979, the Guinness Book of Records declared him as the most successful musical composer in the history of world pop music of all time. He had 29 compositions of his own at the top of the US charts. Twenty of which together with the Beatles and the rest in his solo career or with his group Wings.

Paul McCartney is the most famous left-handed bass player in rock history. Although he also plays other instruments. Such as drums, piano, guitar, keyboard, etc. He is considered as one of the richest musicians of all time. In 2008, he was elected the 11th best singer of all time by Rolling Stone magazine. Apart from his musical work, McCartney advocates in favor of animal rights, against the use of landmines, in favor of vegetarian food and in favor of music education. In 1997 the biography entitled Many Years From Now was published, authorized by the musician and written by the British Barry Miles. His company MPL Communications owns the copyright to more than 3,000 songs, including all songs written by Buddy Holly.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
