The Beatles: Magical Mystery Tour
Travel “Across the Universe” as you listen to music from one of the most iconic and influential bands in music history -- The Beatles.Filed under:
On July 6, 1957, McCartney went to see a local band, The Quarrymen, perform at the village festival at St. Peter's Parish Church in Woolton, a suburb of Liverpool. It was on that fateful day that he met front man, John Lennon.
Did You Know? The cemetery at St. Peter's Parish Church is the final resting place of Eleanor Rigby. Initially, the iconic song, “Eleanor Rigby,” was written about a Miss Daisy Hawkins but McCartney felt the song required a name fit for a spinster. He took the name “Eleanor” from the actress that worked in the film, “Help!,” and “Rigby” from the name of a shop in town. McCartney later said that he may have also been subconsciously influenced by the name on the gravestone.
