The Beatles LP “Revolver” which was released 52 years ago today in the UK, included the song “Eleanor Rigby”. The song was written by Paul McCartney and many people have often wondered who she was, or why that name for the song.
Paul at first said it was a name that came to him and it fitted in with the song, but in reality, there is a headstone in St Peter’s Graveyard Woolton, that contains the name Eleanor Rigby.
The relationship here is that it was at St. Peter’s in 1957 that Paul met John at the church event which was held in the same church grounds.
Paul now admits that the name Eleanor Rigby was probably planted into his subconscious, from all those years ago that he and John would regularly cut through the church grounds in the early days before they became The Beatles.
“Ah, look at all the lonely people…..”
