Although they wouldn't officially disband until April 1970, the first signs that the four-headed beast known as the Beatles was starting to come apart at the seams took place on Aug. 22, 1968. A little more than six years to the day that he performed his first show with the group, drummer Ringo Starr walked out during the recording sessions for 'The Beatles.'
It's one of the most famous songs of the 20th century and an anthem that, to this day, still ends the main set of Paul McCartney's concerts. On July 29, 1968, the Beatles began recording 'Hey Jude,' a process that would take one week and two studios to complete.
The first time John Lennon met Paul McCartney, Lennon was about ready to go onstage with his band the Quarrymen. One of the group members knew McCartney from school, so he introduced him to his bandmates. Lennon was 16; McCartney was 15. It was July 6, 1957, and the most significant meeting in rock history was about to go down.
It went on to become the Beatles' biggest-selling U.K. single and arguably their defining song, but in the summer of 1963, 'She Loves You' was just the latest bid for worldwide success from a band whose music had yet to take over the world.
It looks like Paul McCartney's not collaborating with the surviving members of Nirvana again, after all. A report from earlier this week, citing an unnamed source at McCartney's label, has been quickly debunked by the former Beatle's spokesman.
