On November 15, 1959 three ex-members of the band Quarrymen, later to become known as the Beatles, audition for a British talent program. These young men were John Lennon, Paul McCartney and George Harrison, who appeared on stage as “Johnny and the Moondogs”. After performing two Buddy Holly songs, Think It Over and It’s So Easy, they had to return home the same night as they had no money to rent a hotel room. They missed the next round of auditions.
