Sir Paul McCartney's Music Memory
Gene Vincent - Be-Bop-A-Lula
“'Be-Bop-A-Lulu' was the very first record I bought. I saved up all my pocket money and I went down to the city centre in Liverpool, there was a little shop called 'Currys' and it was really an electrical goods store but in the back, there was a little record booth and I knew I could get the record there. So that was it and I took it home and played it to death. I can't imagine growing up without listening to music, because I was so lucky, you know. To imagine not having music is terrifying.”
Sir Paul McCartney
