Beatles Producer George Martin Wasn’t Sure John Lennon Would Be Successful Without Paul McCartney

John Lennon and Paul McCartney met as teenagers, and their decision to work together resulted in The Beatles. They were a part of one of the most influential and enduring bands of all time. After the band split, both also went on to have successful solo careers. If they had never met, though, would their lives have looked the same? According to Beatles producer George Martin, Lennon may have been content to keep his music as a hobby.
