It’s the little things that make me happy. Such as the original Quarrymen recreating the famous Harry Benson pillow fight shot in 1998. (Photo By Stan Godlewski/Getty Images)
I’m just going to post things separately as well, because it’s my blog and I’ll post what I want to, post what I want to.

This blog is so cool it posts pictures of the Quarrymen before they were Quarrymen. *adjusts hipster glasses*
In order: Eric Griffiths (1948, aged 8); Len Garry (1951, aged 9); Pete Shotton; Rod Davis; Colin Hanton
The original Quarrymen minus their leader in July 1997 on the same spot at St Peter’s Church, where the famous Quarrymen picture by Geoff Rhind was taken on 6 July 1957, the day John met Paul and everything changed.

On John Lennon’s 25th birthday, John and Cynthia along with George and Pattie attend a party at Lional Bart’s home. John’s childhood best friend, Pete Shotton and his wife, Beth, also attend the party. At one point all of the girls sit on a rug and Pete starts to mess around with a Polaroid camera (something none of them had ever seen before).
