July 6: Quarrymen Play Church Fete

In the Beatles calendar, July 6 ranks right up there with August 8, The Feast Of The Holy Crossing. Today, The Feast Of St John And St Paul at St Peter's…

Isn't Maggie Mae a perfect choice? And did you notice the photographer. Such a smart, deft piece of film making.

Definitely my favourite Fab biopic - with Backbeat following close behind. Chronologically, as well. A great double feature.

By the way, there's a book I really like - predictably enough, given this project, and the Beatles fascination. The Day John Met Paul, by Jim O'Donnell. Not just what was going on with the Fabs that day, but plenty elsewhere as well.
