The Fab Four grew up in Liverpool together but had drastically different family lives. In an interview with The Penguin Podcast last month, Paul McCartney spoke of his comfortable upbringing compared to John Lennon’s. The Beatles star admitted: “I was very lucky. I had a very lovely family in Liverpool.”
The 77-year-old added: “And I can’t remember any aggro. I mean how lucky is that?
“I thought everyone had that kind of a family.”
However, it was when he met John Lennon that he discovered his future bandmate had a much harder time.
The young musician had lost his mother, while his father had left at a very early age.
