Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison auditioned for a British talent program called TV Star Search at the Hippodrome Theatre in Lancashire on Nov. 15, 1959. They had been known as The Quarrymen and were soon to be known as the Beatles, but for this audition, they took the name “Johnny and the Moondogs.” They played two Buddy Holly songs: “Think It Over” and “It’s So Easy.” They must have been good as they were invited back for the next round of audition the next day.
But, seeing as they hadn’t made their millions yet, they were forced to return to Liverpool the same night, having no money to rent a hotel room, and therefore missing out on the next round of auditions, 58 years ago.
It’s a shame. We think they could have become something. (Yes that is suppose to be humor…..) Do you think they would have had the same success if they used “Johnny and The Moondogs” instead of The Beatles as their group name?
