McCartney invited his friend George Harrison to watch the group. The fourteen-year-old auditioned for Lennon on the upper deck of a bus, playing Raunchy by Bill Justis. Lennon thought Harrison was too young for the band, but after about a month of persistence he joined as lead guitarist.

Personality tests are enjoying an online resurgence. Previously a staple of tabloids, they fell out of favour as sceptics began to doubt the veracity of the 'If You Answered Mostly B...' scoring system...

I could be wrong, but in another world, where John Lennon wasn't murdered and George didn't die, would The Beatles have ever got back together? Lennon and McCartney had become friends again, but George was still the dark horse. You know the multi-million dollar offers would've been on the table, but you know what? I don't think George would've done it.

For me, the Fab Four's arrival awakened an Anglophilia that remains to this day, as does my gravitation towards almost anything non-conformist.

There I was on the ropes at Abbey Road. Maybe it was a mistake to try and stand toe to toe with an uninterested, chatty audience. At least Jimmy Page was paying attention.

The End, it seems, is nigh. "It's strange in rock culture just now," Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie told BBC4's Review Show in December. "It's kinda dead, I think. It's over." The Cult's Ian Astbury, meanwhile, has decided that the album has also reached the end of the line.

On 29 November 2001, former Beatles guitarist George Harrison died in Los Angeles of lung cancer, aged 58. This was a sad day, the second Beatle to leave us and at just 58. Who'd of thought that by the turn of the century, we would've lost two Beatles?

Mick Fleetwood once said that the first time he saw me walking back from school in Notting Hill Gate he knew I was the girl he was going to marry. We were both sixteen and it was the summer of '64.
