Paul McCartney Visits John Lennon's Former Art College
Paul McCartney recently made a special stop by the art college attended by John Lennon in the 1950s.
Before his days with the Beatles, Lennon studied at the Liverpool College of Art - an institution that has now been purchased by the Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts, which was co-founded by McCartney.
Sir Paul founded the program with Mark Featherstone-Witty in the 1980s initially as a way to rescue some of the derelict buildings popping up in their hometown.
"As well as reuniting two landmark Liverpool buildings, I'm glad that this also brings back together George, John and myself. Aside from being a building we brought back from the brink, LIPA is now contributing as Mark and I dreamed all those years ago," McCartney said in a statement.
"There are sound business reasons why we are buying the building next door, but there's no denying the romance of bringing together two buildings where three Beatles once did their learning. I'm glad that this historic building will not become yet another boutique hotel or, yet again, turned into flats. It'll be used for what it was intended - learning," added Featherstone-Witty.
