The Quarrymen have an extraordinary and unparalleled legacy in the history of music. Formed by John Lennon and childhood friend Pete Shotton in 1956, the band and it’s various line-ups have contributed to the music legacy that led to the formation of The Beatles and their subsequent explosion onto the music scene, changing the face of popular music forever.

Plus Q&A. An absolute must for Beatle aficionados!
